Back to Berklee Spring 2021 Voice Department Information

Dear Berklee voice students,

Hello! Assistant Chair Philip Lima and I have a few things we would like to share with you about the spring 2021 semester.

We are excited to be able to offer in-person, on-campus private voice lessons for entering students and for many of our sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-semester voice performance majors, based on the availability of faculty and facility space. Private instruction for all other voice principals will take place remotely. Student feedback from the spring and fall 2020 semesters showed that online voice lessons were highly successful. For the safety and security of our community, we will have protocols in place to help keep you and your teacher safe. No one is required to come to campus; the remote option is still available to all students, should you choose to remain off campus.

Please continue to visit this page for more spring 2021 Voice Department information, including a reminder about the requirement to use your own microphones and cables on campus.   

There are also many performance opportunities on campus and remotely in the spring semester. Some will be related to the classes you are taking, and some of them will be by-audition performance opportunities. Either way, there will be plenty to do and lots of ways to engage with other students from around the world. We want to help you to learn and grow as singing musicians while having a vibrant college experience.

It's been great to see a number of you at many of the virtual events we've held this fall. Here's a reminder of a few upcoming events that we invite you to participate in with us.
