A great success for the “TMF Music Camp - Berklee Special Edition”, the full immersion of music education organized by Tour Music Fest and Berklee - College of Music in Boston, the most important institute of contemporary music in the world.
Three sensational full of education, confrontation and artistic growth. The TMF Music Camp – Berklee Special Edition was held from 31 August to 2 September, created thanks to the unity between two realities like TMF and Berklee, reaching a highest understanding thanks to a shared mission and innovating teaching.
During the Music Camp, besides the lesson program, activities and labs held by the TMF coaches, we had the unique opportunity to assist the Berklee educational appointments with Janie Barnett who lead three masterclasses on Vocal Technique, Stage Presence and Songwriting.
“What we have achieved is extraordinary” says Gianluca Musso, CEO for Tour Music Fest, “Organizing an educational course along with Berklee was truly an honor, but what really made me happy was to discover that Berklee and Tour Music Fest have the same view on education and teaching, by putting the student first and continuously offering constructive artistic feedback. Janie Barnett knew exactly how to create interesting lessons that managed to fully express the values of both Berklee and Tour Music Fest.”
Janie Barnett, a voice and songwriting professor at Berklee in Boston, is a professional American singer and singer-songwriter, that has collaborated with artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt and Celine Dion an, was nominated for a Grammy for her record “You See This River” and has participated on Saturday Night Live, a famous American television show.
Thanks to the partnership with Berklee – College of Music, we will have the chance to assist more Berklee masterclasses during the Italian Semifinals from 9 to 11 November!
