Program Description

All students at Berklee College of Music enter with a principal instrument. The Piano Department teaches both acoustic piano and the Hammond organ.

No matter what major you end up pursuing, you will complete at least four semesters of private instruction, labs, and ensembles with this instrument. This fulfills your performance core requirement.


Discover Your Voice

As a piano student, you'll be given the tools and knowledge to find your own voice through working with faculty at the forefront of the instrument. Beginning with emphasis on technical proficiency, you'll engage many musical styles, from classical to pop, jazz, rock, fusion, and almost anything in between, and pick up the skills you need to book gigs and become a sought-after player.
