With a Bachelors of Science in Music Production from McNally Smith College of Music and a Masters of Science in Arts Technology from Illinois State University, Andrew Hill has the paper credentials to teach audio and music production. What makes Andrew Hill a great mentor in music production, however, is his real-world experiences as the artist Nostalgia where he has been able to play his own compositions around the world to thousands of people, DJing in Paris, Australia, Canada, and of course the USA.

These two educations, hard-knocks and traditional, were not always separate, however. Andrew blended these educations at school and at home, first taking the real-world to school with the creation of the Electronic Music Production Club at McNally Smith and second by working with his friends in the music business to create the Redline Reload Network that utilized the multi-media production skills he was learning in his graduate studies at Illinois State.
