Boston, MA (August 5, 2019)—Berklee College of Music has partnered with Steinberg to integrate Cubase 10 software into its curriculum. Beginning this fall term, Berklee’s Film Scoring Department will introduce Cubase 10 into both its on-campus course offerings using 100 licenses provided by Steinberg.
Initially the software will be incorporated into Berklee’s student labs, studios and learning resource areas, and made available to the school’s faculty and support staff. In the next phase of integration, Cubase will be used by and taught to students in the Film Scoring Department as their principal instrument of composition.
The College expects to grow the initiative’s footprint and to secure additional Cubase licenses. Berklee will also be considering a similar curriculum expansion at a later date involving the integration of Cubase with Dorico, the musical notation software suite from Steinberg.
The initiative follows months of face-to-face collaboration with Steinberg and planning within the College. “This is really a historic event for us, a real sea change,” McMahon added. “We’ve never made such a dramatic switch in the main tool for our students since we’ve been using DAW or sequencer software in our curriculum, so this is a big first for us.”
Nithin Cherian, product marketing manager for Yamaha Professional Audio, remarked, “It’s rewarding to be part of molding the next generation of recording and composition professionals, and music education has always been a crucial component of the Steinberg mission. An institution as respected as Berklee College of Music is an ideal partner in this objective, and we’re gratified they have selected Steinberg as the DAW best suited to prepare their students for the professional world.”
