ArtsBoston is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the arts.
Berklee College of Music, for over 60 years, has evolved constantly to support its belief that the best way to prepare students for a career in music is through a 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 hip-hop, electronica, and video game music to its curriculum. In 2005, music business/management became the most populated of its 12 majors. With a diverse and entrepreneurial student body representing over 70 countries, a music industry “who’s who” of alumni, and a commitment to adapt to meet the demands of an ever changing industry. Berklee is the world’s premier learning lab for the music of today and tomorrow.
