Berklee College of Music Award Ceremony @ Prudential Skywalk



The International String Trio played for the award ceremony for my alma mater, Berklee College of Music. The ceremony was held at the Skywalk in the second tallest building in Boston, Prudential Tower. The view was really nice from 50 stories up from the ground. This ceremony was for the instructors and other workers for the years of service. Actually I met one of my old classmates at Berklee and she was awarded for 10 years of service. T-t-ten years!? We both graduated from Berklee 11 years ago, that means, she was already teaching at Berklee in the year after our graduation. WHAAAAAAT!? Well, she was a hard worker when she was still a student. No wonder she was already qualified to teach a class at Berklee only one year after her graduation. In my case, the year after the graduation was hell. I was so fed up with music business and business music, then I seriously thought of quitting music. That was when I picked Brazillian Jiu-jitsu. Oh I don't want to remember!

Luckily Jiu-jitsu somehow saved a little musician in me and I am still in this business. My next goal is to make normal-level living by just playing what I like.

Somebody said that this photo was to normal so do something funny.


I am biting my bass! I hope this is funny enough for y'all. No wonder I couldn't get a teaching gig at Berklee.
