Letter from the Chair

Dear Berklee Brass Community, 

We are all looking forward to welcoming our new and returning students for an exciting fall 2020 semester. 

Last semester, we were all unexpectedly faced with new and unique challenges. In true Berklee fashion, our amazing faculty, staff, and students rallied in the face of difficulty to overcome many of these challenges and delivered what has proven to be a very successful semester of remote instruction. 

We continue to work to ensure a robust and rewarding remote experience for all this fall. Thanks to collegewide surveys and your invaluable feedback, we have been able to optimize our Brass Department course offerings and delivery models to offer comprehensive instruction. Your feedback is always welcome and appreciated! 

In addition to a diverse remote curriculum, the Brass Department will be hosting several guest artists, as well as presenting master classes, webinars, lectures, and department events. We will also be collaborating with other departments collegewide on special projects. 

We are undoubtedly living in difficult times. The struggles we are faced with are real. We as a community are hurting and WE as a community can work to heal. In this spirit, the entire college has come together under a unified call to action: Back to Berklee—Healing the World Through Music. We, of course, recognize the challenges we may face, but let’s also take time to recognize the opportunity these challenges present. I encourage you all to take advantage of this time, to collaborate and encourage the growth of our amazing community. We have the unique opportunity to lift our voices through music. Your voices are our future! 

On behalf of the entire Brass Department, I’d like to thank YOU, the students, all for your hard work and perseverance as we continue to adapt and evolve. Please do not hesitate to reach out for help. Our devoted faculty and staff, and I, stand ready to assist you in any way we can.

Most sincerely,

Tanya Darby
Chair of the Brass Department
