International Programs

We seek to bring the Berklee experience around the world. The Office of Global Initiatives creates connections and expands the reach of contemporary music education by engaging other cultures and by discovering new musical ideas through Berklee's method.

We create programs and partnerships that help us identify and discover talented musicians around the world, and we strive to provide them with opportunities to take their passion for music to the next level. Let us discover you!
