Former President of Fox Music Robert Kraft Joins Berklee in Valencia

Berklee College of Music announces that composer/producer Robert Kraft has joined the team at Berklee College of Music. The former president and executive director of Fox Music Inc. (1994-2012) is the new artistic advisor for the film scoring department at the College’s new international campus in Valencia. His appointment will bring the master’s students closer to the Hollywood music industry.

Kraft is visiting the Valencia campus this week, specifically the students in the college’s first master’s program in scoring for film, TV, and video games. Through a series of clinics and master classes, he will share his knowledge and experience with these degree students, who are studying the role that music plays on the big screen and the art and craft of composing, orchestrating, editing, and producing music for films.

As part of the one year film-scoring program, the master’s students will also be visiting Los Angeles to meet renowned Hollywood musicians and composers. This experience is designed to give the students direct contact with the music scoring industry, enabling them to gain a better understanding of its synergies and workings. They will also have the opportunity to record some of their own compositions in a Hollywood studio.

During his tenure at the helm of Fox Music, Kraft oversaw the music scoring for over 300 films, including Avatar, Moulin Rouge, Titanic, Ice Age, Slumdog Millionaire, and Black Swan, as well as the music for successful TV series such as Ally McBeal, The X-Files, The Simpsons, and 24, under 20th Century Fox Television.
