    I was one of his students and his Business of Music class was very interesting.  I now know more of how the  music industry is run thanks to him.  I wanted to take another one of his classes, this is very unfortunate.  My thoughts are with his family and friends, thank you for sharing such an amazing professor with New England School of Communications and Husson.

  • This news breaks my heart. I had Dr Hutchison at MTSU for a few classes. I have never forgotten his teachings and have always had a deep appreciation for all he shared with us. My career would not be where it is right now without this man.

    Dr. Hutchison, you will be missed. My deepest go out to his family and friends.
