The Cost of Attending Berklee College of Music for One Year: $62,319…

Worth it? The Berklee alumni list includes Pat Metheny, Esperanza Spaulding, and even Psy. For the mere mortal, the question is what’s waiting on the other side, especially ‘in this economy,’ and especially in this industry.

Here’s the most updated breakdown of costs, provided by Berklee itself.

Berklee sticks out as a nosebleed, though other esteemed music schools are also demanding ransoms.  That includes the Julliard School ($55,056), Oberlin ($57,025), and Eastman School of Music ($57,246).  The College Board recently calculated that the average private college now costs $42,244 on a ‘moderate budget,’ a figure that drops to $21,447 for in-state schools.
