Silicon Valley Student Trip

Sunday / January 10, 2016 / 9:00 a.m.
Palo Alto
California
United States
94301

The Berklee Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship (BerkleeICE) is thrilled to announce its first student trip to Silicon Valley. This trip will take 10 music students to the hub of startup culture, technological development, and venture capital. Students will spend five days visiting top tech companies such as Google, Spotify, and Twitter; touring incubators and innovation labs such as Stanford and the Y Combinator; and meeting venture capitalists and entrepreneurs on Sand Hill Road.  

Daily activities and speakers will illustrate the parallels between the startup mentality and the creative process, and explore transferable creative skills such as inspiration, improvisation, listening, and collaboration. The trip will strengthen the bridge between Berklee and Silicon Valley, and expand students’ visions of what types of careers are possible with a music degree.

Students will leave the trip with increased exposure to the types of professional opportunities within the tech sector and concrete ways that creatives can market their highly valuable skills outside of the music industry.

The basics:

  • January 10–16, 2016

  • Check out the full itinerary here.

  • Based out of Palo Alto, California

  • Total student contribution of $1,250 trip fee, plus the cost of most breakfasts, lunches, and dinners

    • The trip fee includes economy airfare from Boston to San Francisco, six nights of hotel accommodations, ground transport, and limited lunches and dinners. The fee will be adjusted if the airfare needs vary.

    • A sliding scale discount is available based on student need. Email Nicole d’Avis at ndavis2@berklee.edu for details.

  • To apply for the trip, students must complete the application in its entirety by no later than 11:59 p.m., Sunday, November 29, 2015.

Bye Bye Stage-Fright ... Going from Stage Fright to Stage Presence.

“Stage fright” or “stage presence”? No matter where we are situated on the ‘stage of life’, we would like to be comfortable in our own bones while in the presence of others. We will explore the relevance of Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® as preparation to perform with aplomb. By using ATM processes as exploratory tools we may enhance our own ‘image of self’.

For performers of all kinds: musicians, poets, performance artists -- anyone who wishes to be at ease with themselves in relation to others.

Come prepared to try it out!  Bring your instrument and a short (under 60 second) excerpt to perform.  Ladies - bring your fancy footwear!

 

Presented by

Deborah Elizabeth Lotus Board of Directors, FGNA, began her movement explorations with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais in the early 70’s at Esalen Institute in California and continued her training with him through the early 80’s. Prior that, her career in NYC was managing/booking such artists as Ravi Shankar, Pink Floyd, and Oscar Peterson. Her private  and teaching practice is at The Arlington Center where she has recently opened a low-fee "Movement Clinic", The Hip Joint. She has taught Feldenkrais and Movement Intelligence at Harvard and Lesley Universities, and the Longy School of Music .
