Bill Burgess has been a good friend of mine for years. In fact, when I stopped working as Apple's Lead Logic educator to concentrate fully on building macProVideo.com, Bill Burgess was the person Apple hired to replace me!

Over the years we've grown quite close, and I've been incredibly please to watch as Bill's skills brought him increased recognition at Apple. They found out what I already knew - Bill Burgess is one of the best educators in the industry!

Bill is a musician, composer, video/visual artist and the former Pro Audio Product Marketing Manager and Logic Pro Artist Relations Manager for Apple Inc. As a Logic specialist imbedded in Los Angeles, he interfaced with dozens of the world’s most visible musicians and composers, gathered feature requests, and worked to bring those requests into reality with Apple software engineering teams. A successful musician and composer himself, he has written dreamy dark electronic music for NBC, Disney, Miramax Films, Apple Inc (you can hear his music in every box of Final Cut Studio.)
as well as dozens of indie films and projects. Bill has recently relocated from Los Angeles to Austin TX, where he is the Chief Creative for an all audio ad agency that delivers custom audio and music content for mobile. He is currently writing electronic music and collaborating on moving images and text for an upcoming youtube content channel that specializes in merging music and visual performance into a seamless whole.

Bill is an Apple Certified Logic Pro 8 Trainer, Apple Certified Logic Pro T3 Training Instructor, Apple Certified XSAN for Video and Final Cut Pro 6. He serves on the Avid/Digidesign Customer Advisory Board and is a Waves Beta Tester. Bill has also contributed to the following publications: 
Quality Control Editor, Apple Pro Training Series: Advanced Logic Pro 7 by David Dvorin.
Technical Editor, Apple Pro Training Series: Logic Pro 7 and Logic Express 7, by Martin Sitter.
