Core Music Tutoring

Core music tutoring services at Berklee provide students with one-on-one and group assistance in order to help them reach their potential. These services are offered to all students currently enrolled in Berklee’s core music courses including Fundamentals of Ear Training, Music Fundamentals, Music Application and Theory, Harmony 2–4, Ear Training 1–4, Solfege 1–2, Arranging 1–2, Tonal Harmony and Composition 1–2, Art of Counterpoint, and Conducting 1. Students are able to sign up starting on the first day of class each semester.

Our tutors are all Berklee undergraduate students in their upper semesters who have displayed great proficiency in our core music curriculum. They are also certified by the College Reading and Learning Association through trainings offered in our program.

One-on-One Tutoring

Need a little help getting through some tricky topics in harmony or a little more practice doing dictation? One-on-one tutoring appointments can be scheduled between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. from Monday through Thursday and between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Friday, based on the availability of tutors. Students can either sign up for one 50-minute weekly tutoring session or up to three 30-minute, one-time drop-in sessions a week. These sessions are conducted in a combination of well-equipped private study rooms at the Berklee Learning Center and piano/keyboard practice rooms in the same building.

Group Events

Ask Us Anything

Core music tutoring presents students with opportunities to receive help at pop-up table events every other week. At these pop-ups, they can ask anything related to the core music curriculum and also have their projects reviewed, get help with melodies, have their harmony analysis checked out, and receive refreshers on conducting patterns.

Leadsheet/Chart Making Workshops

We're happy to start offering monthly workshops in leadsheet and chart making to help students learn how to communicate their musical ideas in the clearest, most concise, and professional ways. The first workshop every month is reserved for voice principals; however, the second is open to all. 

Follow us on social media to find out when and where these events will be held this coming semester.
