Mr. Hervey has been on both the positive and negative side of the music industry. From being locked in a bad contract to overcoming other adversities and becoming a successful music producer that has worked with notable artists such as Al Green and Lupe Fiasco. He learned multiple lessons during his career, but the most profound lesson was “Ignorance is much more expensive than Knowledge.” EDUSA will provide the Knowledge necessary to bridge the gap. Our students just need a positive attitude and a healthy work ethic, and EDUSA will provide them with the tools they need.
