Bachelor of Music in Percussion Performance


Program Overview

Boston Conservatory at Berklee's percussion performance program is known for providing students with a multitude of performance opportunities with Conservatory and Boston-area musical groups, including symphonic orchestras, chamber ensembles, student-produced collaborations, and pit orchestras for the Conservatory's dance, opera, and theater productions. Additionally, students can supplement their studies and performance experience with access to faculty, classes, and world-music performance groups at Berklee College of Music.

Percussion faculty members at the Conservatory represent a wide range of expertise. During their course of study, students may choose to study with one general percussion teacher, or divide each semester's lessons between two, three, or all four of the school's renowned studio teachers. Through performance opportunities with the vast array of Conservatory and Berklee College of Music ensembles, students become intimately familiar with standard percussion repertoire and techniques while exploring new musical outlets and styles for percussion instruments.

The Conservatory's curriculum challenges students to view their talents through a global lens. Students are encouraged to become artistic innovators who inspire communal responsibility and engagement.
