Berklee staffers Amanda Gouldthorpe & Shelly Booth

We’re Shelly Booth and Amanda Gouldthorpe, reporting live from sunny Long Beach, CA!  We’ll be blogging from the Berklee in L.A. program this coming week, and have all sorts of fun posts planned, so stay tuned.

Berklee in L.A. is in its third year as a songwriting program at the Long Beach City College.  Six faculty members, nine Berklee students, and five staff members work with a group of 70 young musicians over the course of this weeklong program to take them through the whole process of writing, producing, performing and marketing an original song.  The program offers students a taste of the Berklee experience, through classes with Berklee faculty from several departments and interaction with the Berklee student assistants.

We’ll be profiling classes, student assistants, special events, and the program participant experience throughout this week.  You may be particularly interested in these postings if you’re interested in songwriting production and performance, music business, attending Berklee, and/or the Berklee experience on the road.

Check back on Monday for our next update!
