Berklee Summer String Program
What's the program like?
Learn from some of the world’s leading string virtuosos and educators. Under the direction of David Wallace, chair of the Berklee String Department, you’ll explore in-depth a wide variety of string styles, including folk, jazz, bluegrass, classical, old time, and Celtic. Expand your musical horizons and discover new performance possibilities as a string player. You’ll study with instructors in small class settings and explore new musical styles and techniques under expert guidance.
Where will I eat and sleep?
Applicants who are 15 and older will be sent information and an application for residence hall housing once accepted to the program. Most program participants elect to stay in the Berklee residence halls; however, space is limited. To optimize your chances for on-campus housing, you must return the housing application immediately upon receiving it.
To be eligible to live in the residence hall, you must be 15 years of age by the start of the program. Residence hall housing is not offered to students younger than 15. If you apply to the program after mid-May, please call the Housing Office at 617 747-2292 to find out if residence hall space is still available. Students under the age of 15 attending the program accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other family member will need to make their own housing arrangements.
