Berklee NYC's Power Station studios—where Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, David Bowie, Madonna, Esperanza Spalding, Bob Dylan, the cast of Hamilton, and many others recorded iconic albums—has been transformed into a state-of-the-art recording and video production facility.

Power Station facilities include:

  • four large-format recording studios with 4K video integration;
