We are excited to announce a new addition to the undergraduate admissions experience at Berklee College of Music. Introducing Berklee Unlocked, an exclusive, free virtual workshop series with our world-class faculty.

Submit your application for admission to the fall (September) 2022 semester by November 1, 2021, to receive an exclusive invitation to a free workshop series in one of four areas: performance, songwriting, music business, or production.

These workshops will provide an opportunity for you to experience what it's like to study with our world-class faculty and offer a chance for selected applicants to have their portfolios reviewed by experts in a culminating master class. To increase the chances of your work being selected for review in the master class, be sure to include samples of your performance, songwriting, business, or production projects within the supplemental materials section of your Berklee application.

Note that workshop invitations will be sent to the email address that you use on your Berklee application. All lessons will begin at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time. Registrants will be sent a link to access recordings of the lessons after the series concludes.
