Professor Childs Returns To Berklee College Of Music January 27-30

Share This:

Billy Childs returns to Berklee College of Music on Monday, January 27 through Thursday, January 30 as part of his academic residency.

The pianist and composer joined Berklee College of Music’s Harmony and Jazz Composition Department as the inaugural Ken Pullig Visiting Scholar in Jazz Studies for the 2019-2020 academic year. He’s the first musician to be invited to hold the position established in honor of the former chair of Berklee’s Jazz Composition Department, Ken Pullig, who retired in 2012 after leading the department for more than 30 years.

During his week-long visit, Childs works with advanced Jazz Composition students offering his perspective on their work. He also coaches a student ensemble, collaborates with faculty, and offers master class sessions this semester in which he discusses his music, influences, and process.
