Weekend and five-day programs tend to have full schedules, where the free times tend to be intended for meals and for practicing material from the program.
For longer programs, there may be free time during the evenings and weekends. During that time, Summer Programs students are encouraged to practice, explore the area of Boston around Berklee, socialize with other students in their program, or—on weekends—explore the City of Boston together with their friends. There may be occasional programming during certain programs that Summer Programs students are expected to attend during these times, such as seeing local shows or sightseeing as a group.
During the Aspire: Five-Week Music Performance Intensive, there will be a full calendar of activities that Summer Programs students are encouraged to attend outside of their class hours. Past events included outings to Red Sox games, trips to local museums, shopping trips in the city, arts and crafts events, and more.
