    Not really, no. Berklee is really the one US school with a contemporary music focus that extends beyond jazz. There are classes for basically every genre- pop, rock, r&b, metal, funk, all kinds of world music, the list goes on... But it's the only school with a program like that. Basically every other school focuses solely on jazz and/or classical music.
