Berklee Today: Other Paths
Ample evidence suggests that the skills developed in the quest for the mastery of music have application to other endeavors. The creativity, problem-solving, decision-making, and analytical abilities critical to writing and playing music serve musicians well in nonmusical pursuits. Peiter "Mudge" Zatko '92, Eric "T" Fleisher '82, Arthur Phillips '93, and Chris Waterman '76 are all examples of this talent crossover. These Berklee alumni are well-trained musicians who are also bright lights in careers that lie outside the musical sphere.
