Dumbing Yourself Down to the Common Denominator
This, I'm certain, the key to remaining a teacher in the United States for more than a couple of years. Between the mindnumbingly arrogant and incredibly stupid parents, the over-entitled, under-achieving "students" (to grossly abuse the word and humiliate generations of actual students from years past), to the mess of fools who have crawled into the holes we call "administration" in every area of academia and business, it's amazing that the average teaching career lasts as long as "11 years" in this country. Smarter people would get out faster.
The key to resolving these conflicts is, obviously, get dumber.
Wirebender Audio Rants
Over the dozen years I taught audio engineering at Musictech College and McNally Smith College of Music, I accumulated a lot of material that might be useful to all sorts of budding audio techs and musicians. This site will include comments and questions about professional audio standards, practices, and equipment. I will add occasional product reviews with as many objective and irrational opinions as possible.
