Dream Big Because Dreams Do Happen
Nora Hassan: CEO/Founder/Editor (ThumbsUp_Nora)

I started this website when I was a sophomore (15) at Needham Broughton High School in Raleigh, NC. I graduated from Athens Drive High School in 2013, Go Jags! I'm currently 18 and living the dream. I founded College-Of-Music or, the COM, to show people the most recent hip-hop gems. This blog is dedicated to promoting new artists as well as more known artists. Our motto is No Artist Left Behind or NALB. If you're any kind of music fan and you enjoy listening to and discovering new music, I'm you're person. My favorite artist is hands down Macklemore and since starting this website I've been able to make a friendship with him and his team. #SharkFaceGang I'm the type of person that goes against the norm. I like to be myself I don't let anything change the way I act, something I encourage everyone to do. Below is my team, without them none of this is possible we are a family, #TeamCOM.  Find me on Twitter

In the summer of 2011 I came across a music website that was desperately looking for new writers. Three years and 58,000 fans later, I'm proud to be a part of Team COM. I love sharing my favorite songs with the world and helping artists get the recongintion they deserve. Though hip-hop is my favorite genre, I listen to all types of music. I don't care if you're a pop singer or a rock guitarist; if you make good music, you make good music and that is all that matters. In addition to being a writer at College-of-Music.com, I also do all the graphic design found on the site. Find me on Twitter.



Brett Lavigne: Blogger (Midge)
Currently a junior at the University of New Haven. I work part time at FYE (yes, I feel cool I get to hold the hard copy of albums before it gets released). Since my sophomore year of high school, music has played a huge role in my life. I became the go-to guy for new music and what to listen to. Kid Cudi and Atmosphere is what got me into the hip-hop scene. You'll find me post some hip-hop and some indie here and there. I like to run and work out in my spare time and I'm always updating my workout playlist's, so expect songs that will get you fired up. Some day I would love to be on the business side of the music industry and work for a label to sign artist. Feel free to email me at: brlavigne93@gmail.com or find me on Facebook and Twitter.

I have always loved music and I DJed all through high school. In college got into music blogs and when I thought about contributing, I turned to the COM and now I work for them. I have worked closely with Visionary Music Group and I love all types of music. I just try to stay away from the untalented bunch and hone my music listening skills. Connect with me on Twitter.

I'm a sophomore at Michigan State University, I love going to basketball & football games cheering on the Spartans. I love playing soccer, but my passion is writing and music. Hip-hop is my favorite genre of music and I can't get enough of it. For me independent rap has an artistic value that other types of music just don't have. Finding great new music is my favorite thing to do, especially if it's unkown. I love playing music for people and introducing them to new artists. There's no better feeling than someone popping their head in my dorm asking "what rapper is this?" or "who made this song?". I hope as I get older I will aways have the chance to write about music and for people to see it. If one person reads what I write and enjoys it, then my job is accomplished. Dream big and go green.
