UC Santa Cruz Magazine, Ann Parker - "He’s a loving husband and devoted father, an award-winning composer, a renowned musician, a respected teacher. Nick Vasallo is also the originator of “deathcore,” a genre-blending mix of death metal and hardcore music.
DVC made a significant mark on the trajectory of my music career. Straight out of high school I wanted to break away from the DIY music/recording knowledge I taught myself and learn the basics in an educational environment. I took memorable classes with Tim White, Doug Michael, Mark Steidel, Guy Lento, Jon Bendich, Danny Carnahan, Michael Aczon, and Steve Sage. The music industry program solidified my endeavor into the music industry and I still apply so much of what I learned to my newfound career. I am so grateful for the time I spent at DVC!
