Audition and Interview Dates, Locations, and Invitations

Berklee Admissions is pleased to announce the availability of online auditions and interviews for those who are applying for admission to Berklee for the 2014-2015 academic year and are unable to attend an in-person audition and interview. We expect a high demand and will have limited space available. Invitations for online auditions and interviews will be issued in late January via Berklee’s Admissions portal at apply.berklee.edu.

Applicants will be invited to their audition and interview via the Admissions Portal at apply.berklee.edu, approximately one week from the submission of the online application for admission. Due to the demand in certain cities, applicants may be scheduled for their audition and interview in Boston. Upon receipt of your audition site, you must confirm your audition immediately or your space will be given to another qualified applicant.

If you'd like to get better prepared for applying or going to Berklee, enroll in a free online course.

There are two online audition and interview options.

Option 1: Online Audition/Interview at Berklee International Network School

A Berklee International Network school can provide all of the necessary technological resources for you to participate in the online audition and interview. Auditions and interviews will be available at Berklee International Network schools in the following locations:

  • Athens
  • Buenos Aires
  • Dublin
  • Freiburg
  • Nairobi

Option 2: Online Audition/Interview at Your Home

To successfully participate in the online audition and interview from your home, you must:

  • have access to a private room where you can participate without interruption
  • have access to a computer with internet connection and audio/video capability
  • have access to a set of headphones for use during the online audition and interview
  • have access to all instruments and accompaniment you need to participate
  • complete and submit the application form
  • pay the $150 application fee.

Questions regarding our online audition and interview should be sent to Admissions at admissions@berklee.edu.

Below is a listing of other cities we are planning to visit in the coming year: Please be aware that dates are subject to change.

Audition and Interview Locations

Boston Campus

Due to rental limitations when we travel, orchestral percussion principals are required to audition and interview in Boston.

International applicants auditioning in Boston:

If you are not a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S., you may need to first obtain a temporary visitor visa to enter the U.S. Please check with the U.S. Embassy in your area for more details on applying for a visa, including processing timelines. Please be advised not to seek a student visa to participate in an audition as this type of visa is only issued to accepted applicants.
