Testimonials | Fran Vincent



I’ve been blessed with wonderful mentors, colleagues and students.
Here are just a few kind words from these dedicated professionals…

snapshot“Not only does the Music Mogul 101 class show you the legalities of protecting your music, it gives you a clear understanding where the musician, the writer, and the business come into play as a whole. From the curious to the serious, Fran Vincent’s expertise on the music business makes this class a must for anyone interested in learning the ins and outs of the biz, or for any musician looking to get their music out there.”

– Robert Littleton,
General Manager of The Magic Bag

Photo“Fran Vincent is an exceptional individual. She is organized, creative and has a sense of business. She is task oriented and functions without supervision. She has mastered the marketing, writing and oral skills of her profession. Her skills are at the highest professional level. Her journalism background has served her well. This background has contributed to her professional career and growth. In addition to an intellectual understanding of her field of interest, she has a common sense comprehension and grasp of the music and entertainment industry. Dedication and commitment are a strong part of her character. She has the boundless energy to meet the professional challenges she establishes for herself. Her moral character is, in my opinion, above reproach. Also, she is a pleasure to work with.”

– Jim Progris,
Program Director and Chairperson
University of Miami Music Business program


portrait“I really enjoyed the classes that Fran taught at the University of Miami. I found them to be very informative and very applicable to real world situations. She was always very prepared and it was obvious that she put a great deal of time, energy and effort into her lectures. Not only was she a phenomenal professor due to her command of the material, but she was always very personable and willing to meet with students outside of class for extra help or additional information/networking.”

Top qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity

music industry professional and former UM student

— Jason Beals,
Mavrix Photo Editor, formerly with Warner Bros. Publications


portrait“Fran is an extremely outgoing individual who always put attention to detail and reaching project goals before anything else. During her time at the University of Miami she was a popular professor in high demand and the Music Business and Entertainment Industries Program was very lucky to have her. The students enjoyed learning from her and gain knowledge through her hands-on experiences within the industry. With her in-depth experience in the current “MySpace” generation, she carries an edge that few professionals in the industry can claim today. I would highly recommend her in any leadership or other professor or directors position, as she truly has the ability to excel any project idea to reality.”

Owner of Armenize consulting, and former UM student
