Berklee College Of Music Online Community
As promised in earlier posts, I would like to draw your attention towards www.berkleemusic.com, a really valuable online resource, which can be of great help to both ‘The Creative You’ and ‘The Business You’. Berklee College of Music is quite a remarkable music conservatory based in Boston, United States. Berklee offer courses in all matters musical including an impressive array of songwriting courses and boasts a history of notable graduates including Dianna Krall, Quincy Jones & John Mayer.
Happily for those of use who are unlikely to pack up and move to Boston to study, Berklee have a top-rate online community offering correspondence courses, articles, videos & blogs. Songwriting and music publishing is well represented in all these areas.
I encourage you to sign up for to the Berklee Online community. Signing up is free, will give you access to a variety of valuable resources and will get you on their monthly email newsletter, which highlights videos and articles of note.
Just a few days ago, I received and watched a video tutorial given by Pat Pattison who runs several of the songwriting courses. This was one of the best songwriting tutorials I have come across and I found it so helpful and interesting that I have posted the link below as a taste tester for you. The tutorial is on matching lyrics to melody musically and demonstrates intuitive subject matter so effectively and practically. It’s well worth the time to check it out!
