Joe Basile was an assistant teacher in my 383 class at Western Carolina University, "Music and Audio in Media." I was a film student at the time with very little understand of music and audio especially in film industry. Now the two teachers, co-teaching the class, taught me a lot about sound but it was Joe with his one on one sessions with me and all the other students that help solidify the knowledge we were gaining. After college, I couldn't get a job in film but I was able to get a job as a sound engineer doing live concerts only because of my background with the 383 class and what Joe helped me learn in it. Now I work for Samaritan's Purse in their broadcast department doing audio and video for them. I love my job and how it helps people around the world. I say all this because if it wasn't for that class and Joe helping me on my projects after hours making sure I understand music, audio, and sound, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you, Joe Basile!
