Steve from Virginia, USA, near the Atlantic.

Dabbler in all things musical, with some degrees and junk. Been a member of many other forums (Guitar gear related and theory related) for a long time now - since the days of newsgroups ( which was many moons ago.

I'm a teacher for a job, and by nature, so I try to help out others wherever I can, and try to learn from everyone else as well.

Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is not wisdom. Wisdom is not truth. Truth is not beauty. Beauty is not love. Love is not music. Music is THE BEST.

Welcome to the group...

The perceived not a sum of elements to be distinguished from each other and analyzed discretely, but a pattern, that is to say a form, a structure: the element's existence does not precede the existence of the whole, it comes neither before nor after it, for the parts do not determine the pattern, but the pattern determines the parts: knowledge of the pattern and of its laws, of the set and its structure, could not possibly be derived from discrete knowledge of the elements that compose it.

That means that you can look at a piece of a puzzle for three whole days, you can believe that you know all there is to know about its colouring and its shape, and be no further ahead than when you started. The only thing that counts is the ability to link this piece to other pieces...

Music. I teach Music Technology, and Electronic Music (both essentially introductory courses for both Music Majors and Non-Majors) and am the Area Coordinator/Advisor for the BM in Sound Recording Technology. All the recording/live audio courses are taught by other faculty. I've also taught all the theory courses, some music history, ear-training, etc. as well as taught guitar lessons privately. But yeah, I teach in the Music Department.
