Harbor Conservatory for the Performing Arts, a division of Boys & Girls Harbor is pleased to announce that it is the first New York City member school of the Berklee City Music Network. Berklee City Music is a nonprofit education program of the Berklee School of Music that harnesses the energy of contemporary music to reach underserved 4th to 12th graders all across the country. Students dedicate themselves to building their musical talent, their self-confidence and, in the long run, the strength of their community.
The Berklee City Music Network connects Berklee City Music in Boston with like-minded music programs all over the country – including Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles; New Orleans; Seattle and now New York. The goal of the network is to provide kids with every opportunity to see their musical potential. This includes teaching and mentoring by Berklee graduates who live in their city.
Network membership includes access to the Berklee PULSE music method, annual scholarships for students to attend the Berklee 5-week Summer Performance Program through an application and audition process, and special consideration to Member Program students to be admitted to Berklee with opportunities to compete for full 4-year scholarships to Berklee.
The Berklee PULSE (Pre-University Learning System Experience) gives kids the benefits of a Berklee education no matter where they live. This proven, state-of-the-art online method of teaching gives students access to caring, professionally trained instructors and invaluable learning material. PULSE is even more than music. It’s an online community where students can network and absorb positive influences.
