Dr. Berger, president of MindRocket Media Group, sat down with Gogerty for an enlightening conversation. Gogerty said “The computer is, in essence, a new instrument that allows students to draw on their innate musical sense and creativity to tell a story. They plug in their headphones and they get going. They collaborate, they talk to each other about the music. It’s a lot of fun!” Stefanie Gogerty teaches computer music, sound design/production, LS instrumental and band at Bullis School in Potomac, MD.
