Studio used by MP&E students

It takes a special set of skills to bring out the best in a musician. In addition to technical and musical expertise, you must have experience in adapting to the various personalities that may walk through your door. Berklee music production and engineering (MP&E) students develop an expert ear for quality and learn how to help musicians achieve their full potential.

Through coursework in Berklee’s state-of-the-art facilities and collaborations with some of today’s most accomplished industry professionals, MP&E students build and hone the skills required to work effectively in the fast-paced environment and challenging situations faced by today’s music producers and engineers.
