Caribbean American musician and steel pan protégé, Kobie Alleyne, was selected as a Presidential Scholar at Berklee College of Music commencing this fall, September 2018.
Kobie is a first generation Caribbean American of Trinidad & Tobago descent residing in Miami. Kobie was raised in a family of steel pan musicians and played a role as a member of the Steel Away Ensemble.
Kobie was selected for this honor out of a pool of more than 5,000 applicants to the fall class of Berklee, involving an extensive international talent search via our World Scholarship Tour. A final group of twenty candidates were reviewed, resulting in just five U.S. recipients and two international recipients.
With this honor comes a responsibility and commitment to the recipients development in a challenging artistic environment and a future filled with limitless potential.
Berklee expects to provide Kobie with an educational framework and the tools to be used in his professional career as a performer, composer, educator, producer, engineer, therapist, music business manager, or any chosen professional endeavor. He will follow in the footsteps of a long list of distinguished and successful Berklee alumni.
His Presidential Scholarship will cover tuition, comprehensive fee, required laptop fee and on-campus housing charges.
