進化し続ける校舎/I Want You Backアカペラ動画

こんにちは。ボストンはどんどん冬の気温になってきました。
今日のブログでは、校舎の様子と、以前のブログで完成したらご紹介させていただくと書いていたアカペラ動画をご紹介します。

バークリーは街中に校舎が点在しており、メインの150/160 Mass Ave.の2棟は4階以上が寮になっていて、去年オープンした160には寮生専用のアンサンブルルームやスポーツジムがあります。
噂には聞いていたものの、先日やっと見ることができたので、その写真をご紹介します。

Student Wins First Place in BMI’s John Lennon Scholarship Competition

The following post was written by Lisa Occhino, a sixth semester piano principal from Stamford, Connecticut majoring in music business/management. She is the editor-in-chief of The Berklee Groove as well as the marketing and PR director/founding member of the Berklee A&R/Artist Development Group. Occhino won first place in the BMI Foundation’s 15th annual John Lennon Scholarship competition.

Even before I ever knew I would be going to school here, Berklee had a profound impact on my songwriting. When I began writing my first songs in middle school, I was such a perfectionist about it that I struggled to ever call a song “finished,” and would refuse to show what I had to anyone until I deemed it was truly “finished.” Naturally, no one ever heard my music, and I was stuck with a collection of dozens of unfinished songs that I didn’t know what to do with. After I had decided my freshman year of high school that Berklee was the number one (and only) college for me, I was of course dying to go to the Songwriting Workshop held over the summer.
