Good music programs at his schools in New York
Friend was looking for work and saw Berklee ad
16 Years at Berklee
3 months to write a book
Birthday on June 4
His Classes and books
If you practice every day you’re going to improve
Master list of all his projects in his life (Name, due date)
On his birthday he writes a list of things he wants to do
It starts with ADD, then you start to feed that beast
It truly prepares people for life in the music industry
You have to have the spirit of entrepreneurship
Setting a deadline and working backwards from it helps
You can do a lot of things in 15 minutes
