The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
Jim Valenti is a native Pittsburgher who, from his earliest memories, has always been interested in taking things apart to see how they work. In second grade he began to play musical instruments. His first was the violin and then he began to learn piano, clarinet, saxophone and bass. In college he majored in Electrical Engineering but also took many classes in musical composition and Computer Science. After being in the real world, he returned to collage to study computer science. Working as an Audio engineer, he discovered the ETC.
