Getting Certificate Course...
As a rock guitarist, do you want to shred like Berklee alumnus Steve Vai or be a melodic craftsman like alumnus John Mayer? Maybe you’d like to be an in-demand hired gun ready to take on anything from Texas blues to progressive rock at a moment’s notice. Nobody becomes a virtuoso overnight, but this certificate program can ensure that you make the most of your practice time and talent. You’ll begin with scales and chords then explore how phrasing, rhythm, tone, modes, and improvisation techniques can take your playing to the next level.
