Rich Grudzinski

"I've been in the writing and production business for a long time, and I continue to take projects and challenges on. I still work and do the things I teach, so I can tell students firsthand what's it's like in the business."

"Writing music and teaching complement each other. I need to focus on my teaching duties, but at the same time I have to keep producing in order to bring new ideas into the classroom."

"Conducting a rehearsal, there's a technique to it, going in and being assertive, but being a director, not a dictator."

"In CWP, students get some of the writing and some of the technological things, and you really need both of those nowadays. Gone are the days when you could just be a writer and not worry about the technology at all. The kind of versatility that we have built in to our program, I had to learn on my own through all the gigging I was doing and also working as a recording engineer. If I had come here and learned all that stuff then, it probably would have saved me a lot of time."

"The ultimate goal is to prepare the students to function effectively at Berklee, but even more in their professional life after Berklee, turning roadblocks and limitations into creative solutions and building life long learning and adapting skills."

"Understanding the conventions makes everyone's life easier: people will read your music more accurately and have a more enjoyable time doing it."

Javier Limón

Artistic Director of Mediterranean Music Institute, Contemporary Writing and Production

jlimon@berklee.edu | 617 747-6255

Limón has combined several professional occupations in the worlds of art and communication. Although he has mainly focused on composition and the production of albums, film scores, and television shows, his work as a communicator and teacher is equally impressive.

Gail McArthur-Browne

"I've had some horrible experiences just because I'm a female, but I've never let it tarnish my picture of other musicians, whether they be male or female."

Renato Milone

"I really want my students to never forget that music is not only rules, standards, competition, etcetera, but it is above all—a form of art."

"We want Contemporary Writing and Production graduates to be strong enough to work within any professional environment. We would like them to be able to say 'Yes!' to anyone who wants a project written, arranged, or produced in a contemporary music setting. I try to give students the life skills to allow them to do anything in the music world."
