Berklee Summer Semester

Boston, MA


Join other serious music students from all over the world for an incomparable interchange of styles, ideas, and experiences. Studying alongside current Berklee undergraduate students, you’ll complete the first semester of Berklee College of Music’s core curriculum in just 12 weeks and earn a full semester of college credits in the process.

No audition required. You will need a minimum of two years of formal music training or experience on your principal instrument or voice, and good working knowledge/familiarity with the written fundamentals of music theory (including rhythmic notation, melodic notation in treble and bass clefs, key signatures, major and minor scales, intervals, and construction of triads and seventh chords). Because you'll be enrolled in classes with full-time students, it's important that your musical abilities and writing, theory, and ear training skills are at a compatible level. Must be 16 or older.
