Todo gênero concebível
Claramente, a colcha musical contemporânea de 2010 é mais rica e mais colorida e multi-estilística do que era em 1973 e, naturalmente, os estudantes e seus interesses também. Os alunos da Berklee vêm de todos os cantos do mundo, e seus heróis musicais, influências estilísticas e gostos abrangem todos os gêneros concebíveis.
In 1973, Berklee offered three majors: performance, arranging and composition, and music education. We now offer 12 majors, and this fall we will offer a host of new minors. To continue to create the perfect-storm environment that created so many of today’s top musicians, I believe that we must continue to embrace and teach as many new styles of music as possible. Yet we must also provide our students with a solid musical foundation and teach them the rich musical heritage that brought us to this point. Perhaps most important, we must continue to recruit a stylistically and culturally diverse faculty that can push students’ musical boundaries and assumptions and create a college where exciting, new, and bold contemporary music is commonplace.
