United States

The Berklee Global Jazz Institute travels throughout the United States to carry out its mission at locations such as Memphis, Tennessee; Newport, Rhode Island; Monterey, California; and, of course, Boston.

"BGJI students will develop a clear understanding of the role of the artist in society and investigate how music can serve as a positive force in the community. By using music as a tool to promote intercultural, interracial, and social understanding; tolerance; and social values, they will become models in their communities."

— Patricia Zarate, BGJI outreach coordinator
