About Berklee City Music Network

Demographic breakdown of City Music participants

Design by Benjamin Ferreira

Berklee City Music® enables youth from underserved communities to develop musically, academically, socially, and emotionally, primarily through the study of contemporary music. United through their commitment to this mission, over 40 community organizations in the United States, Canada, and Latin America form the Berklee City Music Network® (BCMN) and collectively benefit over 46,000 students each year.

BCMN members have access to support and resources that help them provide quality contemporary music education to youth in their communities. Some of these students have the opportunity to receive the City Music Summer Scholarship to attend the Berklee Five-Week Summer Performance Program, and a select few receive full-tuition scholarships to attend Berklee College of Music. In addition to impressive careers in the music industry, City Music alumni have also gone on to become doctors, teachers, and other notable professions.

We invite you to learn more about the Berklee City Music Network and the students we reach through this important initiative. 

“I can’t thank this program enough for allowing students like myself to pursue their dreams in music and make them a reality.”
- Samuel Joseph, City Music College scholar
