For you, music is not a hobby; it is going to be your career.

Many of the world's most successful guitarists began their careers at Berklee, such as John Abercrombie, Bruce Cockburn, Al DiMeola, Kevin Eubanks, Bill Frisell, Emily Remler, John Scofield, Steve Vai, and Mark Whitfield.

They came to Berklee because of who we are: the world's largest independent music school and the premier institution for the study of today's music.

The Guitar Department at Berklee offers you the most comprehensive guitar education to be found anywhere. We provide individualized instruction in both electric and acoustic guitar, allowing you to select either of these as your principal instrument. We offer you professional faculty who are specialists in each discipline, course work specifically designed to enhance your talents and abilities, and myriad playing opportunities.

We know how your instrument fits into today's music world, and we give it the respect it deserves. Whether electric or acoustic, the guitar is an extremely flexible and expressive instrument and can be effective in any musical style. Studying at a school that offers you all those musical styles is the most important way for you to take your playing and turn it into a career.
