What's unique about your campus?


My school is a welcoming environment that encourages growth of ones self. At all of our home towns we may be considered incredibly talented, but here we all get to learn so much more from each other than we ever imagined.

The best thing about my school is the opportunity that is presented (on a silver platter, might I add). Great names in music come to visit our campus and share knowledge quite often.

It's a great size truly. It's not too small but it's not too big. Each classroom has about 15-20 students, although liberal arts classes can have up to 40, it's still a great environment. Everybody gets to know each other pretty well. Such an artistic environment enables you to express yourself all the time and also enjoy from other people's artistic abilities.


I LOVE the experimental nature of my school. It's not a new school by any means, but the college is always evolving and changing with the times. Berklee really encourages students to experiment with their instruments and with their talents and find who they are. My teachers have helped me develop who I am today.
