There is a decent number of specialty music colleges scattered throughout the nation. Among them, there are a few that have great reputations, that if you come out of there, you'll be assumed to be a great musician. Among THESE, Berklee sits at the top. If you got into Berklee, you're something special. If you graduated, you're something even more special.

If you are a high school student looking forward to a career in music, you can't ignore the prestige that will be instantly brought upon you if you can get yourself accepted here.

If you can afford it (and it is expensive -- one of the few downsides), Berklee is the best place to study contemporary music styles (Pop/Rock, Jazz, R&B, etc.) Berklee has a diverse student body, coming from Australia, Spain, Japan, Russia, Sweden, and every country in between. Their faculty is kind, knowledgable and talented, many having toured with, recorded or produced major artists. If you want to be a professional musician, you will get the straight scoop on what it takes from the faculty. No one is spoon fed, but the faculty is always there to help. Like I said, there are few downfalls. One is the cost, the other may be the lack of performance abilities-- since it is such a large school there is lots of competition, and one is often reminded of the popularity contests that would ensue in high school to score a performance slot over so many other students. If you are looking for the perfect contemporary music school in the ultimate college town, look no further than Berklee.

PROS: World class faculty, Boston location, recording equipment and studios
CONS: Cost
