If I attend a community college in nj can I still transfer to berklee? What about from Full Sail, can I still transfer? Also do they offer a large quantity of grants and scholarships? Lastly, has anyone ever taken their certificate or courses online? Answers are very much appreciated, thank you.

No but I met a guy from the Boston Symphony Orchestra in an elevator in the Symphony Parking Garage. I asked him what it took to be in the BSO. He said "you have to be better than everyone else who shows up." I said well yeah, but like don't they look for a degree or a resume or anything like that?" He said "Nope." I was stunned! He said "do you play an instrument?" I said yeah, guitar. He said "are you better than everybody else?" I said hell no! Well, then you won't in the BSO he says.

I thought that guy was a riot. Truth be told from a real musician. I figured if anyplace looked for a resume and academics in would be the BSO.

So there ya go dude. Wanna be the big time? All ya gotta do is be better than anybody else!

All of the serious musicians that I have ever known in town attended the New England Conservatory. I am not a musician, but I am in the music scene. New England Conservatory is considered one of the top schools in the world. Might want to check it out.

You must not know many serious musicians. Berklee is also considered one of the top music schools in the world, but teaches a different style from the Conservatory. One school is not better than the other, but one may be better for an individual than the other. I certainly wouldn't pursue classical training at Berklee instead of the Conservatory, but I likewise would never go the the Conservatory if I wanted to stretch my jazz chops.

Yeah, Redpanda has it right. From what I've heard, besides the emphasis on contemporary music, Berklee also has a big program in the commercial side of the music industry, so, as Redpanda said, which school would work better depends on your particular interests within the field.

You can transfer to Berklee, but any music courses you may have taken will not transfer. Other than that, you should be good. They are pretty good with financial aid and they also offer payment plans. I went to Berklee for a year and a half. Never tried their online courses, though. Good Luck!
