Default Free online music classes by Berklee!

Hi friends,

Just thought I'd pass along this information in case anyone else out there is interested in some free classes from Berklee School of Music.

I (and a couple of our big band members) will be taking the "Introduction to Improvisation", which is a free 5-week condensed version of Berklee's 12-week-and-for-credit class. You can find it at https://www.coursera.org/course/improvisation

I'm playing bass in a local big band, and while I don't aspire to be a bass soloist, I do want to improve my playing within the framework of what's going on around me. I've improved a lot over the last year (by main force of having to ) but I figure (1) it's free and (2) the guy can't throw anything at me if I sound awful I'll probably also dabble at these a bit with my Irish whistles, and maybe another instrument or two as well, but my main goal is to become better as a musician, no matter what instrument I'm playing.

They also have other free classes (and of course Berklee has a slew of pay-for-and-get-credit online classes as well), but I thought the Coursera versions might be of interest to others as a way to check out the online method and see if it works for you.

Enjoy!
Sherry
