"Music has a social power and can affect communities," Pérez said. "We're encouraging the student to be more active in the world not just as a performer, but also as a citizen. And in the process they learn more about themselves and about humanity, and that will be expressed in their music."

Drummer, composer, and producer Terri Lyne Carrington gained recognition on late night TV in the late '80s as the house drummer for the Arsenio Hall Show, then again in the '90s as the drummer on the Quincy Jones late night TV show VIBE, hosted by Sinbad. In 1989, Carrington released a Grammy-nominated debut CD entitled Real Life Story, which featured Carlos Santana, Grover Washington Jr., Dianne Reeves, Wayne Shorter, and Patrice Rushen, among others. Her production collaborations with artists such as Gino Vannelli, Peabo Bryson, Dianne Reeves, Siedah Garrett, and Marilyn Scott have produced notable works as well, including a special song commissioned for the 1996 Olympic Games, "Always Reach for Your Dreams." After an extensive touring career of over 20 years with luminaries like Herbie Hancock, Al Jarreau, Stan Getz, David Sanborn, Cassandra Wilson, Clark Terry, and more, she recently returned to her hometown where she was appointed professor in the Percussion Department at her alma mater, Berklee College of Music.
