Dan Carlin

Berklee College of Music: Chair, Film Scoring Dept.

Dan Carlin previously was known as one of Hollywood’s top music editors. As chairman and CEO of Segue Music, he won an Emmy and worked with many major composers in town. Since then, Carlin has been board chairman of the Grammy-giving Recording Academy and exec director of the Henry Mancini Institute.

Now, as chair of the film-scoring department of Boston’s prestigious Berklee College — the nation’s only four-year film scoring program — he brings practical, working knowledge of the biz to its 250-plus students.

“Demands in technology have increased so much that making sure that our graduates have those skills has become one of our major challenges,” he says. In film music, “Collaboration is critical, and networking is fundamental to the whole process,” so Berklee students are getting practical experience and exposure by scoring student films being made at nearby Emerson College and Boston U.

“We have more internship offers than we have students that can fill them,” he says.
