With a passion for music that oftentimes is rivaled only by technology, Rob Brame found the creative outlet that allowed him to express himself with the blending of the two studies in Music Technology. With nearly twenty years of experience playing guitar, bass, upright bass and occasionally drums in various settings - concerts, festivals, showcases, benefits, gigs and paid sessions - he has made his art an applied skill. He has played in Rock, Country, Jazz, R&B, Fusion and Blues bands and everything in between. His gigging experiences range from playing in front of five to fifteen thousand people, and he feels comfortable and at home in either venue. Mr. Brame's teaching experience goes back nearly as long in both one-on-one and group instruction in music and technology separately. Now, he considers it a great honor to be able to teach the wonderful students at Stetson University both Music and Technology and the ever-advancing fields of such arts.
Recording is an integral part of Music Technology and has become an area of focus with him on such offerings as original and cover pieces, karaoke tracks, voice-overs, and background music. He has written and recorded the music for a couple of published commercials, and soundtracks for a couple of small plays and independent films. With extensive experience in studio art, graphic and web design, a comprehensive knowledge of programming, database design and network administration, Mr. Brame has an unusual set of skills that allows him to see a much broader picture of the landscape of current technology and the place that music has in it. He has implemented additional tools such as MIDI stage controls for lighting and special effects, and other technologies such as audio/video production for enhanced user experiences. It is these skills and experiences combined with an insatiable appetite for pushing the envelope that allows Mr. Brame to be such an excited and motivating instructor.
