Blanchard Named Visiting Scholar at Berklee


Berklee College of Music has named world-renowned trumpeter, composer, bandleader, and Blue Note recording artist Terence Blanchard as a visiting scholar in the Jazz Composition department beginning in the fall of 2015. Blanchard will also work in the Film Scoring and Brass departments, and for the Berklee Global Jazz Institute.

“Coming to Berklee feels like I’m coming home. Even though I never went to Berklee, I hang out there a great deal and learn a lot from my friends who went there,” said Blanchard. “Recently, I was guest teaching and was amazed at how much the school has grown and created new avenues for expression. I am really looking forward to joining the faculty and will do my best to add to an already great team of educators.”

“Terence is a triple threat: a composer of the highest order in film and jazz, a widely admired performer, and someone who has devoted himself to teaching and passing the tradition along to the next generation,” said Berklee President Roger Brown. “We are excited to have him be part of Berklee.”
