City Music Scholar Reflects on NAMM Experience

Robert Gould is a City Music Scholar from Little Five Points Music Center in Atlanta, GA, and is currently studying at Berklee College of Music.

The opportunity to perform and receive hands on mentorship by George Clinton, Moby, and the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus crew was an amazing experience to say the least. George Clinton at the forefront of creativity and individuality as a musician mixed with the high level technological advancements and concepts the John Lennon Bus and Moby bought to the experience made this opportunity a life changing musical adventure I will never forget. The ability to be surrounded by music in all directions in the atmosphere set by the NAMM Conference in California made this musical encounter a surreal moment.

As musicians and contemporary music students at Berklee College Of Music, we often are searching for innovation and desiring to be at the helm of what will mold and set a new dawn of music for our generation to enjoy. This opportunity yielded to me by Berklee City Music allowed me to see that in order to be innovative in this era we must seek for the foundations laid by George Clinton, Moby, and John Lennon who were and are all men who faced music with fearless tenacity and zeal. Creativity and technology are at the forefront of this new dawn of the entertainment industry we are entering into. This purpose driven experience connecting education, recording, and technology has exposed my mind, enriched my soul, and fueled my determination for success through my artistry. I am so honored to be an ambassador for the Berklee City Music Program.
