Student Performance Policy:
The mission of Berklee College of Music is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career. Caf shows are one of the methods we employ to prepare students for their careers, and as such the selection process is designed to simulate real-world auditions. Performance opportunities are awarded on merit and not guaranteed to all students. We encourage parents to continue working with your students to help them prepare, but please note that calling the office will not secure an additional opportunity to perform. Please be advised that specific areas have a process they follow, and we encourage students in those areas to continue working with their advisors to secure performance opportunities.
