Well, it just so happened to be Valentine’s Day while we were shooting episode 5 of Tali Jams New York a year ago.

I had been planning to attend graduate school next year, but after meeting with Berklee alumni, I am now contemplating taking a different path. The alumni dinner was really impactful for me, as it showed me a new range of benefits that can be achieved with a music degree from Berklee. This could include being able to be incorporate music into apps, or creating music for video games. At most of these companies we were not only seen as musicians, but as innovators. It was inspiring to see the vast number of Berklee graduates who are successfully making their mark on Silicon Valley.
