Introducing the Valencia Film Orchestra

Valencia Film Orchestra is the result of a dream. A dream shared by Fernando Furones (principal conductor) and Elaine Lizardo (artistic director), both Film Scoring students at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Together, they have devoted themselves to this project ever since they arrived in Valencia last January.

After reaching out to as many people as possible, they succeeded in creating the first soundtrack orchestra based in Valencia. They got the support from Berklee’s campus in Valencia and Fundación FUVANE, a charity focused on providing help to children with mental paralysis.

这个星期陪朋友去参加了一个建议会,就是帮所有没有选专业的超过第三学期的学生开这么一个建议的会议,先上张图吧!

老师在这个会议中会一对一的跟你聊关于每个专业的不同,然后跟你聊你想要学的东西有什么。很多微博上的考生一直都有这个疑问,就是我考作曲专业我需要什么之类的。其实在考Berklee的时候你完全不需要知道你想要学什么专业,你可以就只是很喜欢音乐,水平很好,然后读了一年之后会有老师给你选专业的建议,或许也是一个不错的选择。

考Berklee的时候分的只有乐器(声乐也算乐器),也就是每个人的Princeple,声乐啊吉他啊钢琴等等,在考进学校之后其实跟中国的音乐学院是分很大的差别的,因为跟你同班上课的都是演奏不同乐器的同学,跟自己的乐器有关系的课在最开始只有这几种:一对一的专业课,每星期只上一次。合奏课,像一个学校帮你组的乐队一样跟你这一个学期一起排练,最后做一次小型的汇报演出。还有一个是Lab,在这个课里面的都是跟你相同乐器的同学,博主是唱歌的,最开始上过的lab就是班里面有十多个都是唱歌的而学生然后老师会要求大家轮流表演,讲一些常见的问题,每个lab都分的非常细,比如有的lab专门讲英文歌咬字,有的专门讲歌手录音棚的技巧,像吉他的就有指弹技巧啊,即兴啊,视奏等等。这三种课是唯一跟自己的乐器有关系的课,其他的课都是所有人一起上的,所以一般在学校里刚刚认识打招呼,大家都会问,你是什么乐器?什么专业?

Berklee Latino: Un vistazo al mundo real

Felipe Leon, participante del programa Berklee Latino Bogotá 2014,  nos cuenta sobre su experiencia y cómo el programa lo ha ayudado a ampliar su panorama y ser un mejor músico. 

UntitledHola a todos, mi nombre es Felipe Leon y soy baterista y quisiera contarles mi experiencia en Berklee Latino Bogotá 2014. Básicamente el programa dividió mi carrera en dos: antes y después de tener contacto con Berklee. Antes del programa yo tenía una visión muy corta de la música en cuanto a armonía y lo que significaba ser un buen baterista, bastante ignorante de mi parte por falta de estudio.

Valencia CampusAt the end of this post I’ll bring to light some tips for traveling in Europe…all things I learned the hard way! But first… I am currently finding Madrid to be one of the most walk-able and English friendly in Spain! For a minute I thought I had become AWESOME at my Spanglish, but then I remembered that most people also speak English here! Going to Valencia tomorrow will be the true test of how much Spanish I’ve retained.
