Berklee City Music, Boston, has many programs for Boston-area youth. Here’s a brief intro to the Preparatory Academy Program.
The Prep Academy program is audition-based and aimed at the beginner to intermediate level student. Operating at Boston Arts Academy every Saturday from 9am- 2pm, this is a music education program for grades 4-8. Serving as a feeder system to Boston Arts Academy and Berklee City Music High-School Academy, students study theory, receive lessons, and perform in ensembles with world -class professional musicians such as Berklee College of Music professors Bobby Gallegos, Colin Sapp, and Hey Rim Jeon. Running concurrent to the Boston public school calendar, this program provides 282 total hours of additional instruction weekly to a select 45 students every year.
We will be holding our next auditions for the Summer/Fall 2014 cycle on May 16th 2014.
