Berklee Launches Summer Program at Santa Monica High School

Jazzed Magazine • News • April 17, 2015

Berklee will be holding two summer programs in Los Angeles this July 2015. These programs, held at Santa Monica High School for students aged 15 and older, provide developing musicians access to resources from Berklee. During these five day programs, students learn from faculty and work alongside other young and talented musicians from all over the world.

The first of the two programs, Berklee in Los Angeles: It’s All in the Song, takes place from Monday, July 20, 2015 to Friday, July 24, 2015. This program will guide the aspiring musician in a variety of aspects in songwriting, stage performance, production, and the business of music. Through both individual and team efforts, students will work through the processes and techniques involved in writing, producing, and marketing a song from conception to completion. 

The  Performance Program is the second Berklee in Los Angeles program, and occurs from Monday, July 27, 2015 to Friday, July 31, 2015. This program focuses on key questions for the contemporary musician: What are the stylistic considerations? Why should all instrumentalists – drummers, guitarists, bassists, pianists, wind players, string players – and vocalists strive to be well-rounded artists? These questions will be the guiding themes of the Performance workshop for all musicians – from classical to pop, and rock to jazz – interested in learning to be the best they can in the contemporary music styles.
