"there is no be all end all to any institution"I think you have a bit of a warped misunderstanding of musical education
there is no be all end all to any institution
schooling doesn't hand you a career it gives you an opportunity to study with some masters of your craft ..,,.it's up to you what you do with your education ....and it is a good one
also......make me a list of the best places to network with serious aspiring musicians and I'll bet you Berklee is high on that list
My point exactly.
