“I recently read “The Last Lecture,” which was so poignant… I thought a lot of Cory. Pausch’s energy and how he affected and influenced people, students, and colleagues reminded me of you. You would be an amazing teacher at a higher level of education, and thought you should know that I think that.“
— Leslie Pelinka, Oregon Pediatrician & Doctor Noize Fan
This was one of those emails that inspired a change. Cory loved being a recording artist and composer, but missed his days as a high school Arts, Communication & Technology Department Head in Silicon Valley. He took Leslie’s advice, enrolled in a graduate program, and was offered a college teaching job before his grad work even started.
With a Master’s Thesis in Recording Arts Education, he’s now Director of Music Technology & Recording Arts at Regis University, teaches at Stanford summers, and teaches at his own Reach Studios and Doctor Noize Workshops across the country. Explore below!
