Berklee Valencia’s Global Studies program student: Kelvin Killmon – the february timeline



The last week has been pretty relaxing. I have spent a LOT of time practicing, and I am starting to record some new music at the Palau, including a song I am going to give to Creative Spotlights for their Charity Fundraising Album, and one I plan to submit to Berklee’s brand new A&R club. I’m very proud of this new material, and I’ll try to make it available to listen to ASAP.

Thoughts about Masters Programs with Berklee student Nicole Bono

My name is Nicole Bono, I am currently a 7th semester student at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and a Music Business major.  Approaching the end of my studies, I started to look at Grad Programs.  I knew right from the start that I would want to continue my studies in the entertainment industry, and focus onto International work.  I am bilingual, fluent in English and Italian, and loving languages and travel so much I know that I want to be involved in the International workplace, especially if I can combine those passions along with the Music Industry.
The Berklee Valencia Masters Program seemed to be a perfect match for me, and the more I began to read about it and ask the people on campus, the more it interested me. I began to fill out my application, signing up, gathering my thoughts, and coming up with a Statement of Purpose.  I found that e-mailing the people in the admissions office was very helpful. When the representative, Nigel Lees came over to Boston, I met with him as well, and he was so helpful to give me that extra push.
Finally, just the other day I submitted my application! Now I am waiting to hear back and hopefully I will have to prepare for an interview in April.  I am so excited to be a part of this whole experience, and maybe in September, I’ll be lucky enough to be part of the first class at Berklee Valencia.

Berklee Valencia’s Global Studies program student: Alexis Colett

Hola Berklee! My name is Alexis Colett from Fresno, California and I’m a second-semester Vocal Principal studying Professional Music and minoring in Drama.  I am currently studying in Berklee Valencia’s undergraduate Global Studies Program, concentrating in International Music Business and Performance.  This semester I will be blogging about my experiences at Berklee Valencia.

Putting together a new school in a foreign country is not an easy task.  There are many aspects to it: developing a new curriculum, building the facilities, hiring new staff and most importantly, finding the right students!  I am proud to say that I am studying with 26 of some of Berklee’s most dedicated students.  What you learn in the classroom is one thing; however, it is what you can gain from your peers that is so enriching.
