What's the program like?

Your voice: it’s your instrument. Explore the world of contemporary vocal music in your choice of style: pop/rock/country, R&B, jazz, musical theater, or a cappella. Open to vocalists, singer-songwriters, and instrumentalists who sing, this four-day program will provide you with instruction in vocal technique, style, performance skills, singing with a band, group singing, and a cappella performance.

Workshops to choose from include recording techniques, microphone/PA technology, jazz improvisation, pop/R&B improvisation, songwriting, auditioning, and a cappella arranging.

Who are the instructors?

Classes, performances, and special events are taught by faculty members of Berklee College of Music, along with special guest clinicians. Berklee's voice faculty are innovative educators as well as experienced professional musicians. Their expertise in contemporary vocal techniques and technology make them invaluable as teachers.

What's the schedule?

You will receive an individualized schedule of times and locations for all classes, clinics, performances, and special events at the time of registration.

Where will I eat and sleep?

Applying for residence hall housing is a separate process. A limited number of housing applications and related information will be mailed to accepted applicants beginning in April, until residence halls reach full capacity. Acceptance to the program does not guarantee a residence hall space. To optimize your chances for on-campus housing, you must apply to the program before April 1 and return the housing application immediately upon receiving it. Due to limited availability, residence hall space will fill up quickly. To be eligible to live in the residence hall, you must be 15 years of age by the start of the program. Call the Housing Office at 617 747-2292 for more information. If you are unable to secure housing in Berklee's residence halls and you are at least 16 years of age, contact the Office of Special Programs at 617 747-2245 for information on alternative housing.
