Mentoring Program

Berklee City Music Mentoring Program

“City Music is a way for me to help somebody out and to educate someone the same way I was educated. Teaching them and helping them also helps me to learn.”
– Harry Zec, mentor

"The Mentoring Program is an opportunity to have awesome teachers, to learn and improve my instrument, to observe what college life will be like, and to make new friends who also love music."
- Joshua Natal, Mentoring Program student

Music is an important part of your life and you would love to spend more time improving your skills.

If you're looking for someone to coach, challenge, and teach you more about yourself and music, then you might be interested in the Berklee City Music Mentoring Program. This program gives you a chance to boost your confidence, understand your opportunities, and find out what you want in life. Berklee students and alumni volunteer their time to offer:

  • one-to-one coaching;
  • weekly music theory classes; and
  • ensembles.

You’ll also be invited to participate in workshops, performance opportunities, and social events to help you connect with other musicians.

The program is open to seventh- through 12th-grade students in the Boston area and takes place at Berklee College of Music on weekdays after school. You can apply beginning in March to start the following September, and students are selected for the program based on their application, audition, and interview. This is a scholarship-based program, so there is no cost to participate.
