The various workshops, running from July 3-16, will cover topics such as songwriting, improvisation, ensemble performance and music technology and will be taught by Berklee faculty.
Students attending the workshops will also have the opportunity of working with special guest artists, singer/songwriter Paula Cole as well as Eminem producer and staff songwriter and producer for Dr. Dre, Dawaun Parker.
Berklee and the Lollapalooza festivals in Santiago, Chile, and Sao Paulo, Brazil, have partnered to award two Lollapalooza Scholarships to musicians from those countries, in keeping with the festival's philosophy of artist discovery and helping bands reach new audiences.
The winners, Sarah Messias - a 16-year- old multi-instrumentalist from Jundiai, Brazil - counts harmonica as her favorite instrument but also plays piano, guitar, drums and sings; and Manuel Torres Riquelme, 21, who hails from Linares, Chile and plays electric guitar, piano, and percussion, will attend the summer programme of their choice.
Each Lollapalooza Scholarship covers tuition and room and board, as well as a transportation allowance.
