Located in Boston, Massachusetts, Berklee College of Music has a long-standing reputation for preparing musicians for professional careers, offering diploma and bachelor’s programs in such majors as composition, songwriting, performance and music education. However, Berklee’s curriculum also includes industry-related programs that include Music Production and Engineering (including recording), Film Scoring, and Music Business and Management. Berklee’s current annual enrollment is over 4000 students, and alumni from the school have gone on to win over 200 Grammy Awards. Among these Grammy winners are alumni Bruce Hornsby, Melissa Etheridge, John Mayer, Aimee Mann and Quincy Jones.
Plan on a four-year commitment for Berklee’s bachelor’s programs, slightly less for a professional diploma. Tuition is about $14,000 per semester for diploma programs, and $17,000 per semester for degree programs, not including fees and housing. Summer semesters are also available for a slightly lower rate.
