Berkleemusic, the online extension school of the Berklee College of Music, has just announced a strategic partnership with Cambridge-based Noteflight, an online music notation software. Together, the two will help innovate online learning, simplifying the workflow for instructors and students by allowing them to access musical coursework in the cloud without having to copy files back and forth.
Noteflight has become a key player within the Berklee Music Network, an exclusive community for Berklee trained and affiliated musicians, performers, music producers, songwriters and music industry professionals. Noteflight will now be offering all Berklee Music Network members a discount on their premium “Crescendo” subscription, that allows users to compose, read, print and hear notation right in their web browser. Customers can also sync their scores to MP3 recordings or YouTube videos to give their music a multimedia aspect.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Berklee, both within their online school and their new Berklee Music Network,” said Joe Berkovitz, president and founder of Noteflight, in a press release. “As the premier online music school in the world, Berkleemusic’s selection of Noteflight as a tool to support their online music programs is an exciting moment for us. Berkleemusic understands the value that cloud-based music notation software brings to students and teachers alike.”
Berkleemusic currently offers over 150 online music courses, as well as several different certificate programs. Just this year, Berkleemusic set a world record for hosting the largest online guitar lesson. At the rate they’re innovating their online program, however, we’re sure that probably won’t be the last record they set.
