Wyclef Jean announced today that he is going back to school to earn a diploma from Berklee College of Music. With a flexible program tailored for him to include on-campus classes and online courses at Berkleemusic.com, Jean will earn college credit while maintaining his active career. He attended his first class on Monday, and will return to campus a number of times over the semester. His curriculum this fall includes courses in ear training, theory, improvisation, and guitar.
“I left college after only the first semester to pursue my career and after all that I’ve accomplished, going back to college was the one thing I wanted to do for myself. I think it is important for young people to know and aspire to get their education. Berklee College of Music was always where I wanted to attend. I would like to thank Berklee’s President Roger Brown and Chief of Staff Carl Beatty and the entire faculty for making me feel welcome,” said Jean.
