Berklee City Music is a nonprofit program that harnesses the energy of contemporary music to provide music education to fourth- through twelfth-graders in underserved communities at over 45 network sites, educating more than 20,000 students across the country annually. With year-round instruction, the Berklee PULSE™ Music Method online music education platform, expert faculty, individualized mentoring, and a comprehensive curriculum, Berklee City Music combines the breadth of Berklee College of Music resources, facilities, and available scholarships with an environment of attention and encouragement. Youth receive the tools and support they need to flourish as students, musicians, and, perhaps most importantly, confident and well-rounded individuals ready to shape the world.
