Q&A with Ana Kasrashvili, Award-Winning Composer, Songwriter and Teacher
“Berklee is the best place for students who are passionate about music and are not afraid of getting out of their comfort zone. I consider myself very lucky for the opportunity I had to learn from great teachers who shared their experience, created the right environment, and knew how to motivate each student.”
