Berkleemusic distance learning program

I am writing to you on behalf of Berklee College of Music who have just launched their Berkleemusic distance learning program officially in the UK. One of the things that this entails is that £45,000 have been pledged to be given out to UK students over the upcoming five years to study online with Berklee. Patrons of these scholarships include Sir George Martin and Jeff Beck alongside three other big music names.

The scholarships are open to everyone in the UK and we are trying to boost awareness about them to the British musician community. information provided within the press release below,
