Berklee College of Music

Berklee was founded on the revolutionary principle that the best way to prepare students for careers in music is through the study and practice of contemporary music. For more than 70 years, the college has evolved to reflect the current state of the music industry, leading the way with studies in performance, music business/management, songwriting, music therapy, film scoring, and more. In June 2016, the Boston Conservatory merged with Berklee, creating the world's most comprehensive and dynamic training ground for music, dance, theater, and related professions.With a focus on global learning, the Berklee campus in Valencia, Spain, offers graduate programs and study abroad opportunities, while Berklee Online serves distance learners worldwide with extension classes and degree-granting programs. The Berklee City Music Network provides after-school programming for underserved teens in more than 40 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. With a student body representing more than 100 countries, abundant international undergraduate and graduate student populations (33 and 53 percent respectively), and alumni and faculty who have won more than 300 Grammy and Latin Grammy awards, Berklee is the world's premier learning lab for the music of today--and tomorrow.
