Berklee City Music Network and The Berklee PULSE Music Method join forces with Kompoz.com to make online music collaboration a reality for network students all around the country
Miami, FL April 11, 2011 Today Kompoz, LLC and Berklee PULSE, the web-based music education program of the Berklee City Music Network, are proud to announce a formal partnership in which Kompoz has made available to BerkleePULSE, the full capabilities of the kompoz.com website to all students participating in the BerkleePULSE music education program across the United States.
"The decision to partner with Berklee PULSE was an easy one", says Steve Gardner, director of media relations at Kompoz. "Berklee PULSE had been looking for a centralized platform where students from across the country could collaborate remotely and kompoz was able to fill in the last piece of the puzzle. With facilities across the United States, Berklee PULSE needed a single solution to upload and mix music tracks, along with guiding their students throughout the entire songwriting and production process. Kompoz was more than happy to provide the platform to do so" said Gardner.
Jason Stokes with BerkleePULSE states; "We had been scouring the Internet to discover a robust platform with a user-friendly interface and kompoz clearly stands above all the sites we reviewed. Once Steve and I spoke a few times, we both realized it was a 'no-brainer' for BerkleePULSE to partner with Kompoz."
"Collaboration is a key component to musical development. We feel that providing our students with the ability to write music with other students from different cultural backgrounds is essential to healthy musical development." said Jason Stokes. "We at the Berklee PULSE Music Method, and the Berklee City Music Network would like to formally extend our sincere appreciation to Kompoz.com for helping us to achieve a new level of student collaboration, thereby bringing a large network of kids a little bit closer together, one project at a time" said Stokes.
In addition to donating KompozPLUS memberships, Kompoz has also created The BerkleePULSE group within the Kompoz community, which gives the students a single point to upload music tracks and communicate seamlessly with other students and advisers. Further, Kompoz has committed to developing the Kompoz/BerkleePULSE Mentorship Program. Kompoz has enlisted members from within the Kompoz Community to provide additional guidance and assist in the overall development of the many talented young people involved in the BerkleePULSE program.
