Berklee City Music Network
Berklee City Music is a nonprofit program that provides music education to
4th thru 12th graders in under-served communities. With year-round
instruction, expert faculty, individualized mentoring, and a comprehensive
curriculum, Berklee City Music combines the breadth of Berklee resources,
facilities, and available scholarships with an environment of attention and
encouragement. Kids get the tools and support they need to flourish as
students, musicians, and—perhaps most important—confident and well-rounded
individuals ready to shape their world.
The music education goals are achieved using the Berklee PULSE music method,
a collection of lessons and materials delivered online that support
classroom instruction. PULSE focuses on musical styles that originate in
American popular culture and emphasizes the study of instrumental technique,
theoretical understanding and an awareness of historical context.
