Helping musicians abroad


Malibu native Joey Guglielmo was part of the team from Berklee College of Music in Boston who recently visited Nairobi, Kenya. The college held events in Nairobi that included auditions and interviews for scholarships to attend the college through its Africa Scholars Program, music education outreach, workshops and clinics for area musicians and educators.

Berklee’s Africa Scholars Program is designed to create opportunities for gifted African musicians who lack the financial means to study at Berklee. The program is also intended to increase the number of African students, fostering a significant cultural exchange; and increase awareness of the college among African musicians.
