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.

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.

Now he teaches Recording Arts at University of Colorado Denver in the school year and his alma mater Stanford summers. He serves on the Recording Academy Education Committee. He’s back to his passion as lifelong student and teacher. Study with Cory at school, Reach Studios, virtually, or a Doctor Noize Workshop for the young set. Explore below!
