Music Production and Engineering Faculty

Michael P. Abraham | 617-747-8584

"Many of the technical tools and methods used today in the recording studio are quickly going to become obsolete, and it's important for the contemporary music production and engineering student to have an education that's going to allow them to not only change with the new technologies, but help invent them as well."

"I want to teach my students how to survive in the music business and put them in as many realistic situations as possible."

Matthew Beaudoin | 617-747-6505

"I want students to come away from my class with practical skills that they can apply in their future work."

"My goal is for the students to be comfortable with their strengths and weaknesses, and to feel free to be open, honest, and collaborative."

Chad Blinman | 617-747-2226

"Recording music is taking part in a kind of alchemy—you're transforming intangible, cerebral ideas into something real, something physical. It's a sort of magic."

Tony Carbone | 617-747-2400

"My whole thing is to try to work creatively and aesthetically, not just use the tools because it's a new plug-in."

Mike Denneen | 617-747-6249

"Hopefully, I can give my students some tools and some perspectives to figure the problems out themselves."

James Donahue | 617-747-6940

"I believe in team-based learning where we all learn by doing the exercises together. It's about discovery and learning what motivates you to do what you do."

"If a course is working, my students are going to learn more about how their brains work, their instincts, their strengths, what's compelling to them, and what they gravitate towards. Students are required to articulate their goals and plans, then critique their own and each other's work. It sounds easy enough, but is often quite a challenge. Trying to describe what we're doing and why, and attempting to understand other students' motivations, often reveals biases and discontinuities in our own perspectives and assumptions. 'Why?' is often the hardest question."

“Every decision we make means something and has definite impact, so we might as well strive to make thoughtful choices and really mean what we do.”

Rob Jaczko | 617-747-8253

"I really respond to students who are eager to learn and willing to go all out to achieve their goals."

"You have to realize that teaching, at its more fundamental level, is communication."

Michael Moss | 617-747-8285

"The ultimate test is when they get out in the real world, will they sink or will they swim? And I'm very happy with what I see. What's happening here—it's just getting better all the time."

"My feeling is that it's never too early to start making mistakes and seeing what you like to do as far as a mix engineer or a recording engineer."

"The big advantage of being here is to have the ability to try different types of technology—not only the latest one but the original ones at the same time."

"Working in recording studios, it’s a culture of apprenticeship and moving up through the ranks. I'm trying to set up real-world scenarios."

John Whynot | 617-747-6810

"What is this thing we are making? Why? And for whom? Even if we can't precisely answer these questions, pondering them brings a sense of artistic focus to the work."

Jonathan Wyner

"Our students are encouraged to explore something as abstract, slippery, and hard to define as art and approach it from the standpoint of the aesthetic and the technical. They go fairly deep in both directions and that is unusual. Berklee's not just an art school and it's not just a trade school."
