The online school of Berklee College of Music, Berklee Online, has announced a slate of virtual masterclasses for students all over the world. The one-time two-hour long live sessions will be led by a Berklee instructor in line with the educational institution’s robust curriculum.
“The Masterclass series is new and exciting territory for Berklee Online,” says Debbie Cavalier, CEO and Cofounder of Berklee Online on the institute’s website. “We’ve always wanted to offer an affordable option so students from around the world can experience what it’s like to drop into a Berklee lecture in real time. They’ll interact with an award-winning instructor, collaborate with classmates, and come away from the two-hour session with an actionable set of new tools and skills to apply to their songwriting and guitar playing.”
So far, three masterclasses – scheduled for February 2023 – have been announced with more sessions to be added in the next year. There’s ‘How to Write a Memorable Melody for Songwriters’ by songwriter and educator Andrea Stolpe on Thursday, February 16; ‘How to Write Song Lyrics to Fit Your Melody’ by lyric writing and poetry professor Pat Pattison; and ‘How to Play Fingerstyle Guitar’ by chair of the Guitar Department at the Berklee College of Music, Kim Perlak.
All masterclasses are priced at $99 or Rs 8,190 (approximately) with no registration fees. Access to videos and learning material will be available for 30 days after the class.
