Question about Steve's experience at Berklee

#1 Post by Cameronryanguitar » Fri Jun 07, 2013 7:01 am

Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone knew what Steve majored in at Berklee college of music because I am planning on going there as well and I'm not sure exactly the difference between a few of the majors. Also, does anyone know which teachers he studied with? Thank you!!

I believe he was only there for a year (maybe two?) before he got the call from Zappa to fly out to LA and try out for the band. He did recieve an honorary doctorate from Berklee in 2000.

This interview sheds a little light on his time there:
