Founded in 1945 as Schillinger House, as a school designed for the study of jazz music, Berklee College of Music has remained committed to teaching students the music of the time by equipping them with practical skill sets rooted in the professional music world. Berklee accomplishes this in part by steadily expanded its curriculum over the years to include rock, country, hip-hop, bluegrass, Cuban, and Gospel, many other contemporary styles.
An extensive cross-section of Berklee’s vibrant musical life is represented by innumerable and diverse concerts, recitals, clinics, and master classes, which include performances by Bobby McFerrin, Pierrot Lunaire Ensemble, and others.
