Popular Music Institute 2
The second of the three-course series within the Berklee Popular Music Institute. This experiential course provides students with the practical and analytical skills needed to develop a successful touring act chosen from among their fellow students. Student groups of three people will be working with the artists chosen in the fall semester (BPMI-P401). They will rehearse the artists as they prepare them to perform on festival stages during the summer semester. Students will continue to book and plan the summer semester for their acts, and will also review contracts, as well as promotion and production requests from their respective festivals. Students will continue to work on the artist's development plan as they update and further build their web presence, visual identity, merchandise, and social media accounts. Students will also be organizing and producing the BPMI/Heavy Rotation Records release concert at an off campus venue.
