Well, finally done with my studies at Berklee College of Music.

I have learned such an enormous amount. There is easily 10 years worth of material to keep me busy.

Many thanks to my saxophone professors: Jeff Harrington, Fred Lipsius, & Frank Tiberi. Great players and teachers, all three.

I had a great experience at Berklee and am extremely grateful for the opportunity to attend.

:cool:

Congrats Thad. So tell us...is it true what they say about Berklee? :D

Where's your head at musically? Did they help you get there and grow from there?

Were you full time? Could one do it in a year (I tend to doubt it with 10 years worth of stuff)?

(I did half of a 1 yr cert at SUNY Purchase. Great teachers but few concert opportunities. That and o/s tuition argued against continuing.)

It's all true! Not really. It is a place that you get out of it what you put into it, just like any university environment. There were things a couple of teachers said that I totally disagreed with. But all in all, I had a good many great teachers, each with very in depth and thorough curriculums.

There used to be a 1 year certificate but not so sure anymore.

Berklee is not cheap, but I think it was worth every penny.
