Berklee College of Music

Berklee College of Music, for over 60 years, has evolved to support its belief that the best way to prepare students for careers in music is through contemporary music education.  The college was the first in the U.S. to teach jazz, the popular music of the time.  It incorporated rock n’ roll in the 1960s, created the world’s first degree programs in film scoring, music synthesis, and songwriting, and, in recent years, added world music, hip-hop, electronica, and video game music to its curriculum.  With a diverse student body representing over 70 countries, a music industry “who’s who” of alumni that have received 175 Grammy Awards, Berklee is the world’s premier learning lab for the music of today – and tomorrow.
