The Beginning of RCTC’s Electronic Music Program
The electronic music program at RCTC began with a $10,000 grant from the Downtown Business Association.
“We actually had one of the first standalone computers on campus and just a couple little synthesizers,” RCTC music instructor Kevin Dobbe recalled.
They were gained by his predecessor, Dolph Bezoier.
“When I came in I kind of picked up from where he started with that grant, and built it up from there; Aaron Shannon was one of those early students (using the equipment),” said Dobbe.
The technology has changed dramatically.
“It’s getting both simpler to operate and more complex in its ability,” Dobbe said.
