Who is Duan Barrino?
Duan Barrino: I'm an experienced music producer out of Charlotte, NC. I graduated from Full Sail University with a Music Production Bachelor of Science Degree. I wanted to be more sure of my skill in music production (beats, mixing and mastering etc.), that is why I enrolled at Full Sail. Also there are a lot of musicians out here that are very credible. Even more than me but I wanted to separate myself from what the average musician was doing. Full Sail boosted my musical skills to a level I expected and more.
My musical beginnings started at a church in Charlotte, NC named Morning Star Baptist Church. I was a drummer for many years until my high school years where I made the switch to keyboards. Also I play/sing with a group named The Voices of Morning Star which is a quartet group founded by my late uncle Dennis Barrino. From elementary to my senior year of high school I played trumpet. I picked up the tuba in the tenth grade to help my band teacher in the lack of tuba players there of. As you can see I'm not just hip-hop, but a well rounded musician. This is something missing in many producers that are around these days. A lot of them just want to make beats within one genre.
Though I'm deeply rooted when it comes to music, there is still more to my short story. I was also an All American Track and Field Athlete in High School and College. Upon leaving The University of South Carolina I came back to Charlotte and attended Just 4 U Barber & Styling Academy later becoming a Barber, all while pursuing the passion of music. Now that I have given you a little insight on myself I hope we can build and grow.
