William Paterson University (Communications)
William Paterson University (MBA)
My name is Lucius Page. I am a professional music producer/songwriter. I studied at William Paterson University where I received my Bachelors Degree in Communications TV/Radio. In the Communications department I participated in various clubs. The film club and tv/radio club really grabbed my interest. There were a lot of projects happening these clubs during the school year so took that opportunity to sharpen my audio skills.
In film I was a boom pole operator. That is someone who held the microphone and captured the audio during filming. I also would do the post production and music scoring for these projects. In Tv/radio, setting up microphones such as lavalieres or hand held microphones was my job and I would be stationed at the audio board to monitor the sound. The opportunity came were I was able to be employed at
William Paterson while studying there. Fortunately I was able to work in the Communications department.
Because of my strong background in audio, I was given the job to do tape transfers. This required me to transfer all of their tape data over to the digital domain. A lot of the what I was transferring was old live musical recording. So I was able to EQ and add other processing FX to help preserve the sound. That job opened my eyes to signal processing and helped me understand what tools to use when mixing. My test scores were never lower than a 90%. I always took the time to study and prepare my self for my exams. For my thesis project I had to do a sound design piece with dialog that was for a duration of 5 min. I put my all in it and I walked out with the highest grade in the class! A 98%! I truly learned a lot at William Patterson and I am appreciative of the time I spent there.
I graduated in 2009 and I set my sights to New York. Quad Studios is where I started my internship. There I learned the ropes of how a major recording studio worked. Starting out as an Intern mopping and cleaning (which is what all new internet did) was a humbling experience for me. But I quickly got hired in 5 months time. That wasn't the norm though. You usually have to work at a studio for 1 year before being considered for a job. At Quad I learned how to be an engineer. I assisted some of the biggest engineers in the business and even had the opportunity to be in the room with famous artist like Trey Songs, Justin Beiber, Puff Daddy and more. Being able to be in the room and watch some of the best artist, engineers and producers work was a priceless learning experience. As I moved up in the studio and becoming one of the senior engineers at Quad, teaching the new interns the ropes of the studio became apart of my job. A lot of them would come to me because of my patience. I actually took joy in helping them out. The studio manage saw that I was good at teaching the interns that he made me manager. He liked how I was able to teach and respectfully dictate orders to them which helped make the studio run better. He said that I had great leadership qualities.
After a few years at Quad Studios I got picked up by a Swedish producer. This was my main goal to be a music producer. Becoming his assistant allowed me to learn what a music producer really did. Understanding the role of a music producer wasn't clear to me. But my time with him opened my understanding of what a music producer did and how vital that position is. It was a very intense few years working with him. Many long hours and sleepless nights. But it was well worth it. I later went out on my own and ended up working with talented artist, such as G Soul, Boyz 2 Men, Solange Knowels, James Fauntleroy and many more. Along my journey I ended teaching my friends what I had learned. Once again I found myself sharing the knowledge that I had acquired over the years and taking pleasure in doing so.
While working in the music industry professionally I also teach music production. I always ask the person I'm teaching what do they want to learn. From this my students are able able to get the exact information they are looking for. Sometimes one may be a beginner and need to learn the basic fundamentals of recording and music production. Others may have a little more experience and just need to learn a few more techniques to make their production shine. I believe I can help you in your music production. I have learned so much from big producers and engineers just because I was in the room with them. A lot of theses techniques you will not learn from school. I would love to have the opportunity to teach you and help you grow in your music production.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

I am qualified to tutor this subject because I have a degree in Communication TV/Radio. I specifically studied the audio side of TV/Radio. I'm also currently working in the music business as a music producer doing music production. In the past I have given tutoring in this subject.
