Online Faculty:
Leah Waldo

Leah Waldo is the Associate Director of Online Curriculum for the online division of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. After completing her studies at Berklee, Leah received her Masters in Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. An alumna of the Arts in Education program, Leah focused her studies on curriculum design, edtech, and educational neuroscience. Her work in online education is deeply rooted her belief that increasing access to music education breaks down the walls that divide us and inspires us to stand together as a global community. In collaboration with Grammy–winning faculty, international non-profit
organizations, and distinguished foundations, she designs rigorous and meaningfully relevant degrees, certificate programs, and courses steeped in project- based learning, inquiry-based learning, and learning by design. When Leah is not reading articles on nascent edtech technologies and studies in educational neuroscience or listening to new music, she can be found performing with her band, Elisa Smith & The Tiny Little Lies.
