As you may already know, the Guitar Faculty at the Berklee College of Music is famous for churning out some incredible guitarists called John: John Petrucci, John Scofield, John Mayer, John Abercrombie, and many others who aren’t called John, but are equally as talented. With this kind of alumni Berklee can and do charge a fortune for their services, and it seems to be worth every penny; so, what if you’re busting to go but don’t want to fork out a small fortune for the privilege? Or you live too far away, or you just can’t be bothered…
Believe it or not, you can study at Berklee for a fraction of the cost, and there’s more than one way to do it.
Method One: Berklee to Go
The ubiquitous Tyler Larson of Music is Win fame has a course called ‘Guitar Super System‘ which is divided into levels, each level being the equivalent of one semester at the Berklee School of Music Guitar Faculty. How Tyler gets away with copying the entire curriculum and selling it as a (very cheap) online course we’ll never know, but it’s pretty good if you just want the guitar theory part of Berklee. Levels 1, 2 and 3 are currently available:
Method Two: Berklee for Beginners
Even if you’re a beginner, it’s not too early to think about the long-term and as luck would have it, Berklee also have an exclusive Introduction to Guitar course which you can check out here. Courses start on set dates, but you can sign up at any time.
Method Three: Berklee Online
Not to be outdone by Tyler Larson’s knock-off courses, Berklee of course have their own online school in the form of Berklee Online where you can sign up for a wide range of courses and even a degree, which aren’t that cheap, but are still cheaper than going there.Share this
