Berkleemusic Offers Alumni Discount


I'm happy to announce that Berklee's Continuing Education Division, Berkleemusic, is now offering alumni of the college a 10 percent tuition discount on all online courses and certificate programs.

Marking its five-year anniversary, Berkleemusic has a growing catalog of offerings in all areas and at all levels of music, including instrumental instruction, improvisation, music production and technology, music business, songwriting, arranging, and core music studies. Berkleemusic offers alumni the opportunity to reconnect with Berklee professors and study online at home and on their own schedule.

Berkleemusic brings high-quality, award-winning music instruction to tens of thousands of musicians around the globe. The diverse group of students taking the online courses live in more than 80 countries and include military personnel in Iraq as well as NASA engineers and touring musicians from such bands as Train, Korn, Saosin, 'NSYNC, and They Might Be Giants, to name just a few.

Networking opportunities are also a key component of the Berkleemusic experience. Online students find themselves studying music and forming connections with like-minded musicians from all over the world. Many continuing education students have reported that the friendships they have struck up with online classmates provide an expanded network of professional contacts and opportunities.

Lifelong learning is critical to success in any endeavor. For Berklee alumni who are working music professionals, it's generally been impractical to enroll in full- or part-time college-level studies. Berklee alumna Kate Schutt '03 discovered that while she toured the United Kingdom, she could continue her studies online. "Berkleemusic was the perfect thing for me," says Schutt. "The course fit in seamlessly with what I was doing."

With more than 75 online courses and 30 certificate programs and top-flight faculty, Berkleemusic represents a virtual microcosm of the best of Berklee. I invite you to visit our website at to view the course offerings and see how can help you achieve your musical goals.
