Berklee College Of Music Is Gonna Run You A Couple Of Bucks


When I was a kid I really really really wanted to go to Berklee, mostly because a lot of my heroes went there. Now, I don’t remember how much jack it took then, I was busy trying to score change for a pack of smokes and a couple of Lil’ Debbies on the way to my next gig. But I do remember that according to my calculations it would have taken a lot and I didn’t have very much. This deficiency created a pretty big barrier between me and my dreams of soaking up musical knowledge at Berklee.

So today I caught this pretty cool article on The Cost of Attending Berklee. And by pretty cool I mean it gave me freakin chills. According to the breakdown which according to the article was provided by Berklee itself, a year of learning how to rock is gonna set you back about $62,319. So times 4 = $249,276. Now let’s look at this a little closer.

Notable Berklee Grads, Steve Vai, Mike Portnoy, Pat Metheny, Branford Marsalis, Joe Lovano, Stu Hamm, Will Calhoun…..

People in music that have made a ton of money…. Puff Daddy (Dropped out of Howard University as a business major), 50 Cent (Attended a Correction Boot Camp), U2, Lady Gaga (Went to NYU) All of this according to Wikipedia so you know it’s true. (I do my research)

So my lesson to you here is save your quarter million and rap!! Check out the article HERE

What up!!! I am a musician. I try to be a musicians musician at that. I consider myself fairly knowledgeable as a guitar/bass player, drummer and fairly decent in the studio. I also work very hard on my song writing skills. I’m not claiming to be an expert by any means and in my opinion few people really are.

What I am however is a guy that has learned a lot from trial and error and watching others follow the same process. What this site is designed to do is help others along the way. Maybe you’re looking for a piece of gear and want a users perspective on it rather than the manufacturers sales pitch or the paid for sales pitch by most of today’s biased publications. Or, maybe you’re trying to accomplish something sound wise and just can’t hit the nail on the head. My goal is this page is going to provide a resource for all things in today’s guitar, drum, studio… bla bla bla…. You get the point.

If you see a video or article you like please comment, if you don’t like it comment too. But whatever you do be respectful of everyone involved. All I want is a cool place to discuss all things rock!!

Later,

Gearzombiee
