I recently auditioned for and got accepted into an amazing 5 week Summer Music program at Berklee College of Music. Berklee even gave me a $750 scholarship towards tuition. Unfortunately the cost for the entire program including tuition, room, board & airfare (I'm in Los Angeles, Berklee is in Boston) cost $8655. I'm contributing $700 I've received from previous scholarship competitions I've placed in, leaving me short $7,160.
So I'm reaching out to family, friends, philanthropists and music enthusiasts everywhere who love jazz like I do and who want to keep it going by supporting young musicians like myself.
I'll be applying to Berklee College of Music next semester. This would be a amazing opportunity for me to get my foot in the door, get heard, get known and learn about the school while doing so.
Thank you in advance for anything you can give, including advice!
