My experience at this year’s Berklee five-week has been extravagant to say the least. Filled with twists and turns throughout meeting people and making music. The first day I landed in Boston I already saw people flooding the practice rooms and I knew I had found my Candy land. I ended up making music with my neighbors which then turned into me building relationships with other people. I was spending hours on end in the learning center (which Berklee offers to us five-weekers) trying to learn the basics of Ableton and sampling, or if I brought a producer down there with me to make a beat while I was in the other room writing. I’m also staying in contact with many musicians after five-week so we can email each other the projects we are working on and be able to contribute to the projects.
These past 5 weeks have been some of the most productive weeks I’ve had in my life and I want to thank the Motivational Edge program because without them it would not have been possible for me to have done ANY of this. I deeply appreciate everyone who contributed to my go fund me so I can eat 3 times a day and my mom for supporting me and my dreams.
