No meu último post eu escrevi sobre minha experiência com a lenda do rock Joe Satriani. Através do concurso realizado pela Live Nation em parceria com a Berklee eu fui escolhido para trabalhar na equipe de produção do Joe por um dia. Desta vez irei escrever sobre o evento que ocorreu algumas horas antes do show, o Perguntas e Respostas de 60 minutos com Joe Satriani, em inglês meet and greet with Joe Satriani.

Rolling The Ball – Preparing For Departure
Looking back, the only thing I regret about my L.A. experience is that I didn’t do enough processing beforehand to really prepare myself. Before you consider interning in the music industry, it might be useful to sit down and brainstorm an action plan. Strategically plan your moves in advance to get the best results. When you form that attack plan, it makes the transition all the easier and can plant seeds for your future success.
Right now you may be thinking, is there a point to this? Well, let’s get down to business. These are some tricks I’ve learned via experience that may get you thinking. (Thinking is always a good thing. ALWAYS take time to reflect. You’ll be surprised at how much you can learn about yourself)
Getting The Ball Rolling – Sharpening Your Creative Pretty Little Artsy Axe
First off, I advise you to consolidate your achievements, experiences and successes in an updated resume. At the same time, put together all of your best creative work in a bio, demo, website etc (whatever is appropriate for your goals). This way, when you interview for internships and jobs, you’ll already have a huge leg up on the competition. This material can put you on some of these industry folk’s radars very early. Do this before you even secure an internship and you’ll be well on your way into this business. You’d be surprised at how open minded and laid back a lot of these professionals are, even the big shots.
In today’s industry, you have to be willing to seize any opportunity because the value of music has diminished considerably. If there’s talent there, there’s money to be made and lots of people want to make it. Being prepared (and even over prepared in some cases) makes all the difference in the world.

Allison Preisinger has been an integral part of the PULSE department for about two and a half years as the Audio Assistant work-study to the Instructional Media team. She has worn many hats during her time in our department and throughout her years at Berklee. Yesterday, she took her last final at Berklee and will be heading back to the west coast soon. The PULSE team has loved getting to know Allison, so we thought you should too. We wish Allison all the best!
1. What types of projects did you work on while with PULSE?
I started out doing research for music copyrights. Then I learned Filemaker and helped to put together a database that would keep track of the information for all the songs that we’re putting together. I also took the images for the Notation Mixer on the PULSE website. More recently, I’ve been helping to proof and post the music transcriptions and layouts that go online. That mainly entails listening and comparing it to the recording and comparing the recording to the notation that’s is written out. Continue reading
