Berklee College of Music

The Department of Culture and Tourism- Abu Dhabi, introduces the first Middle East outpost of Berklee College of Music: the preeminent institute of contemporary music and the performing arts.

Berklee Abu Dhabi offers world-class educational experiences through workshops, masterclasses, courses, ensembles and labs, all led by world-renowned artists and instructors. We also host live performances from students, alumni and global artists.

Its home in the UAE Pavilion’s newly renovated 42,000-square-foot arts education centre on Saadiyat Island has a performance space, a recording studio, rehearsal studios, practice rooms, ensemble rooms and a multimedia tech lab.

This partnership with the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism also encompasses $5 million in fellowships, representing the single largest scholarship program in Berklee’s history, through which students from the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region will be given opportunities to attend Berklee College of Music; Boston Conservatory at Berklee; Berklee’s campus in Valencia, Spain; Berklee Online; and summer programs, and to have an impact on the life of Berklee internationally.
