In Their Own Words

"I teach computer applications in the music industry, web design and management, web development for e-business, and a few others. It's about developing ways of getting your information out there. Having those technology skills will allow you to build your business, whether it's yourself, if you're a solo artist, or you're working for a company that's promoting artists. It also teaches attention to detail and aesthetics. A lot of companies are excited when they have a new intern or a new hire who knows about all these different things. It's a different generation. You need to have those skills now."
