Will Lydgate

Like many successful students, Will Lydgate began his Berklee experience at the college’s Five-Week Summer Performance Program. It left him so inspired that he helped establish the Berklee Kauai Scholarship, which funds one student from Kauai, Hawaii each year to attend the program. “When you make a gift to Berklee, you support people like me to go back to our communities and give back what we have learned,” says Lydgate. “I can promise that my education will have a positive impact on future generations of musicians. It’s inspiring to see other Berklee students and alumni who give back. I am truly grateful and very excited for the future.”
