"I try to relate the class topics to real-life situations, what I had to go through, what I did professionally. This is the project that I want you to do, these are the guidelines. I'm the client, you're the artist. This is your job."

Mark Poniatowski

"I always encourage my students not to work on what they already know. I tell them, 'You don't want to go out the door just knowing the same thing you came in knowing.'"

"Music is about experiencing it—getting to know people personally and learning how they develop their individual sounds."

Simone Scazzocchio

"I want my students to be aware of their musical choices, be aware that each change they apply to their melody, harmony, effect, production, mix, etc. will eventually change the final emotional delivery of the music."

"I like making the content for the online classes. It's a more relaxed atmosphere, just sitting in your office deciding how best to present this material. Is it best presented with a video, with a piece of text, with a custom app that Berkleemusic makes for me? Some of the things I do online I can't do in the classroom. I do a series of videos where the student sees my hands on the keyboard, sees the Ableton program right there, and it has my voiceover. In the classroom I don't have a camera guy at my back. Another of the things I do is like a VH1 pop-up video. You watch the waveform of the tune, but every time that I hear something important, a little observation pops up."

"I want students to be able to experience what it's actually going to be like in the real world versus just a classroom setting. I want their work to be able to used either as a portfolio or as professional work. Maybe if they've never done technology before, by the end of my class they'll be able to excel in that, or at least be able to get work in that field, because the most important thing, especially for Contemporary Writing and Production majors, is being able to be versatile, and being able to do several different things."

"I try to help my students understand arranging not as a set of rules to follow, but as a set of tools to help them further their aesthetic."
