Visiting Artist Events

Performers, engineers, and music business professionals are among the industry experts who visit Berklee to offer clinics and master classes about the business and art of making, recording, promoting, and composing music. Often only open to the college community, these visits are opportunities for Berklee students and faculty to get an intimate and inside perspective of the industry.

 Visiting artist events are not open to the public. Log in with your OnePass to see a list of upcoming events.
