    Science Says the Most Successful Kids Have Parents Who Do These 9 Things

    "What can I do to make sure my kids succeed in life?" Here's what researchers say.
    1. Don't tell them they can be anything they want.

    According a survey of 400 teenagers, conducted by market research agency C+R Research, young Americans aren't interested in doing the work that will need to be done in the years to come. Instead, they aspire to be musicians, athletes, or video game designers, even though these kinds of jobs only comprise 1 percent of American occupations. In reality, jobs in health care or in construction trades will be golden in future decades. Why not steer them into well-paying professions in which there will be a huge shortage of workers?
    Market Research Agency C+R Research
    ...young Americans aren't interested in doing the work which will need to be done in the future. Some interesting figures:
    • About 20 percent of teens want to work as musicians, athletes or video game designers, even though these kinds of jobs only comprise 1 percent of American occupations. That equates to 30 million people vying for 1.5 million jobs.
    • Only 7 percent of teens want to hold one of the 25 most common jobs in the U.S.
    • Just 3 percent of teens aspire to hold one of the 25 jobs expected to grow most by 2024.
    • Plus, 15 percent of Americans currently have office or administrative jobs, which is the largest of 22 segments of the U.S. labor force. Yet 0 percent of the surveyed teens want to do this kind of work when they grow up.

    Dallas College Richland Campus should be sending all students to Career Services and the Transfer Center before they are allowed to enroll. Every credit hour attempted (whether financial aid was applied for or received) counts against the 180 credit hour limit for financial aid. Every attempted hour also eats up the 150 credit hours eligible for in state tuition. Out of state tuition is not covered by financial aid and will add thousands of dollars to the tuition bill. And, only 60-66 hours can be applied toward a degree at a 4 year university, so no students should exceed that without getting in writing from the school they wish to transfer to that the credit hours are necessary. Hence, Logozzo and Logan putting students into dozens of hours of credit hours of music that apply to nothing, are not college level and/or will not transfer takes away all of the students options and ends academic careers before they are barely begun.

    Derrick Logozzo and Melissa Logan have armies of students that do no have the background and requisite skills to ever make a living in music, but as these students are not getting any information about how to prepare for gainful employment they are easily lured in to fill chairs for these predatory advisors. These dirty advisors are also putting the students into very few core hours that do apply to all degrees. Few students actually take the 32 core hours required for an Associate's Degree in Music, much less the 42 required for most Associate's Degrees and that comprise being core complete upon transfer. This is turning into a horror story!

    Re: Dallas College / DCCCD Richland Campus Music Advising Derrick Logozzo / Melissa Logan Out of State Tuition Nightmare

    10 musicians earn a new home at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Now, they work to keep it
    .....Nickson competed against 138 percussionists from around the world. Because of such low odds, musicians can go years without winning an orchestral position. This life can become expensive and exhausting. As detailed in the famous 2004 New York Times article "The Juilliard Effect: Ten Years Later," bassoonist Chad Alexander once sold his instrument for $5,300 to pay credit card bills. "It got to the point where you're just tired of being poor," he told The Times.

    Orchestral hopefuls often need to hold day jobs to get by. Many teach and some work outside of classical music. When a position in an orchestra opens up, they can try their luck again, but of course, there’s no guarantee of success.
    What does it take to win one of these coveted orchestral jobs, then? First, intense preparation. Sandwick, who joined the clarinet section after holding a position in the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra, follows an eight-week schedule leading up to each audition. At some points, he structures his day to the hour, allotting time for practice, physical exercise, studying scores, meals and sleep.
    “You give up so much,” Sandwick says. “Your personal relationships can suffer sometimes.”.....
    What was your audition process/preparation like? What was it composed of? And what did you think put you ahead of other musicians?

    6/3/2020
    https://www.mydso.com/educate/studio...an/archiveWhat was your audition process/preparation like? What was it composed of? And what did you think put you ahead of other musicians?

    Answered by George Nickson, Principal Percussion
    My audition process for Principal Percussion was a very rigorous one! The audition consists of over 50 excerpts (short pieces) from the orchestral repertoire on about 10 different percussion instruments. Xylophone, glockenspiel, marimba, vibraphone, snare drum, bass drum, cymbals, tambourine, triangle!
    Preparation for the initial audition, which is 4 rounds, prelims, semifinals, finals and super finals, lasted about 6 weeks for me of playing many hours each day. I would estimate that I prepared for this audition with about 200 hours of practice.
    After winning the audition, I had two different trial weeks, which are full weeks of rehearsing and performing with the orchestra, before they voted to determine whether I could join the orchestra. It was a long process!
    I think that diligent preparation, musical expression and treating every musical detail with the utmost care and thought helps to set oneself apart from the rest of the field.
    Best,
    -George
    George Nickson, Principal Percussion:

    A percussionist and conductor of great versatility and virtuosity, George Nickson has been hailed by The New York Times as “a performer handling his role with ease and flair.”
    Prior to Dallas, Nickson served as Principal Percussionist of the Sarasota Orchestra from 2012-2019. He received the Master of Music degree at The Juilliard School where he studied with Daniel Druckman and completed his undergraduate studies at the New England Conservatory with Will Hudgins. In addition to his position with the Sarasota Orchestra, Nickson has had the privilege of performing with the orchestras of Boston, Detroit, Washington D.C., Toronto, Honolulu and San Francisco.
    Recent highlights include world premiere concerto performances at ensembleNEWSRQ in Sarasota, Florida and at Tanglewood, solo performances at The Spoleto Festival, and solo recording projects that can be heard on NAXOS, Bridge and Albany Records. Nickson frequently appears as conductor in notable performances with ensembleNEWSRQ, including world premieres, Charles Wuorinen’s New York Notes and Le Marteau sans Maitre of Pierre Boulez.
    Derrick Logozzo and Melissa Logan need to start sharing the real truth with their students. The abysmal odds apply to music of all kinds and studio work universally. Music is not a way to make a living for the vast majority that pursue it. The vast majority in the department should be playing in 1 ensemble for personal enjoyment with perhaps a half hour lesson for a semester while they pursue a degree that will lead to gainful employment. A small number should be admitted as music education majors if they have the music background, music skills, strong academic record and work ethic to make it. Only a tiny fraction of a percent of students, as in those who clearly demonstrate the capability to transfer and do well, should be admitted as performance majors. This complete BS about it being a developmental program must stop. Credit classes are not developmental and should only have students enrolled in them have them on an official degree plan that leads to employment or as already noted community and 4 year college students may wish to take 1 ensemble per semester as they pursue other majors. Again, every credit hour chips away at financial aid eligibility and in-state tuition eligibility. Choose your classes wisely!

    All of those programs are offered at Cedar Valley only. Yet Derrick Logozzo and Melissa Logan keep touting the following:



    That is outright fraud. The class schedules have not had these courses for years and the current ones reflect that the classes for certificates and degrees listed above are available at Cedar Valley. Derrick Logozzo telling students that they can do anything related to music business, recording technology, digital music production and the like at Richland is pure fiction and absolute fraud.

    Re: Dallas College / DCCCD Richland Campus Music Advising Derrick Logozzo / Melissa Logan Out of State Tuition Nightmare

    Reality check.... Our wonderful Richland adjuncts hold Master's Degrees, DMAs or Phds. Let's look at how these folks make a living. From a few hours a week at Richland many go to middle schools and high schools where the pay ranges from $13-$25 per half hour lesson. These jobs that last only 30 weeks a year and have no benefits but leave one traveling all over and waiting sometimes hours between lessons are filled by folks with Master's Degree or higher and extensive playing experience in DFW schools. Just to get a few hours a week at these local schools is highly competitive. Those considering music need to look at the harsh realities. Making a living in music requires a tremendous amount of education, incredible talent, endless practice and facing the painful reality of lots of competition and endless auditions.

    Re: Dallas College / DCCCD Richland Campus Music Advising Derrick Logozzo / Melissa Logan Out of State Tuition Nightmare

    Derrick Logozzo plays for this orchestra. The pay has gone up a little since 2005, but do the math. 24 services equals around 16 rehearsals and 8 performances in a year. That is a year's worth of bubble gum money. A tremendous amount of practice time and drive time is unpaid. There is tremendous competition for the very few spots even in these smaller orchestras that pay peanuts. If your resume is among the most impressive you may get an audition. See the post about the DSO above. Logozzo holds a Master's from UNT (one of the top and most prestigious music schools in the country.) There are many volunteer community orchestras, a small number of orchestras like Irving's across the country and a select few large top tier orchestras that have paid players.

    Why Community Orchestras Are Important – Parker Symphony Orchestra
    only about 20% have professional musicians (source: League of American Orchestras). The other 80% are volunteer, or community, orchestras made up of musicians who gladly donate their time and efforts to entertain, educate, and inspire their local community.
    Don't forget the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Chorus is all volunteer. Derrick Logozzo and Melissa Logan are not giving students the cold hard facts and painful realities of making a living in music. They are using up students financial aid eligible hours (180 credit) and in state tuition eligible hours (150 credit).

    Abstract

    Online student success rates in community colleges have continued to fall below student success rates for their on-campus counterparts. The purpose of this causal-comparative quantitative study was to determine the difference in student success between students who used a hardcopy textbook for an online U.S. history course and students who used an online textbook at an urban community college in Texas while also investigating the influence of gender and ethnicity. Secondary data collected included final course grades from the course over a 10-year period with 9,115 students. The theoretical foundation focused on the deliberate construction of online course design and content to support student success from the perspective of Vygotsky’s scaffolding. The Mann-Whitney U test was used to analyze correlations between the 2 groups and the chi-square test was used to test if gender or ethnicity influenced the effects of the implementation of the online textbook on student pass/fail rates. The results of the Mann-Whitney U test indicated that providing the online textbook as compared to the traditional hardcopy textbook increased final course grades between the 2 groups. The results of the chi-square tests results showed a positive difference between groups for ethnicity but not for gender. The findings of this research inform educators and administrators of policies and practices that support student success by providing free embedded online course materials to students. Student completion of gateway courses can lead to further education, employment, and positive contributions as a member of society.

    Fine Arts Dean, Diane Hilbert, has had this horrific mess dumped in her lap numerous times and according to Richland College President, Dr. Kathryn Eggleston, in July 2019 was supposed to make recommendations in line with what VP Donna Walker gave me in writing that students would be advised according to degree plans (Guided Pathways.) I also have in writing from the late VP Donna Walker that the music enrollments would to be monitored going forward. We can see what Dr. Hilbert was doing while she was supposed to be monitoring her subordinates.

    I do not think congratulations are in order. Dr. Hilbert has let Derrick Logozzo and Melissa Logan go completely rogue and hundreds of their advising victims have exhausted financial aid at Richland and will have to pay out of state tuition at their own Texas Universities (which financial aid will not cover) due to these predatory advisors filling their own music chairs. I think a better dissertation topic would have been how being put into excess hours by Logozzo and Logan has dropped the graduation rate for music students off of the proverbial cliff! DCCCD is a totally disorganized mess and has egregiously failed its students and the Dallas County taxpayers funding this horrific mess.
