Music Department Sign

'Music' sign.Musicians are creative, but this can extend into physical endeavors as well. Confronted with what to do with old (recently replaced) electronic piano keypads one could simply think "trash," but Tim Roberts saw a potential for something more creative. Spending a portion of the summer on his project, Tim came up with some creative signage for the Music Department. You can see it displayed in front of Building 2 on the Fremont campus.

Tim Roberts Releases CD

CD: Fox Hunt by Tim Roberts.In addition to our Music sign, Tim Roberts has been busy creating music of another type. His new CD of acoustic guitar music, Fox Hunt, was released on July 15, 2012, and can be found on both iTunes and at Visit Tim's Facebook page for a sampling.

According to one review on

"From slick new age, to dirt road folk, and anything in between, this is an eclectic assortment of fresh instrumental string music in various genres. The arrangements are clean, consisting mostly of acoustic guitar, dobro, and bass… Recommended!"
