Is the Victor Wooten/Berklee Summer Bass Workshop for me?

June 13–15, 2014

Is it for me?

If you love music, the bass, and getting inspired, this program is definitely for you!

Am I eligible?

This program welcomes players of any level of experience, including beginners. All participants must be at least 15 years old by the start of the program.

How should I prepare for the placement evaluation?

Well before you arrive, you will receive two chapters from Wooten’s award-winning book The Music Lesson (also used in Berklee curriculum). A large part of the program will be based on these and other chapters from the book. Reading the entire book is suggested, but not required.

You will also be placed into classes, labs, and ensembles with other participants of similar training. To determine your level, the faculty would like you to arrive prepared to play a short piece of music in a style with which you are comfortable: jazz/blues, rock/funk, or Latin/world beat. If you read music, you will be asked to demonstrate your skills in this area.
