Paolo Santos

“Because of Berklee City Music, I was able to go to Berklee during the summer, and while there I was able to meet people who I never would've ever met before. From them, I learned so much about combining different styles of music as well as just learning from them.”

Who are your musical influences? 
My main musical influences include Dexter Gordon, Michael Brecker, Alan Baylock, and Kamasi Washington as some directors, players, and composers.
What are your goals and dreams for the future? 
My goal for the future is to keep playing saxophone in some sort of band, hopefully playing regularly or maybe even touring. I'd also like to maybe teach or lead my own group.
