The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts is a healthy, fertile environment for the unfettered evolution of the global human enterprise we call musicmaking. It is a school in tune with the unprecedented stylistic egalitarianism of our age, a school that enables young musicians to recognize their original voices and develop them with skills on the highest level. It is a school that helps students build a frame around their creative profiles, focusing light on their emerging visions, so they may be clearly seen in the vast and varied, global cultural landscape. It is a school that fosters informed mobility among cultures and deepens the understanding necessary to be effective in co-creative situations. It is a school that offers tools to empower musical innovators in carving out unique, individual career pathways, which may not have existed before, in our unpredictable and rapidly changing professional milieu. It is a school that adapts flexibly to emerging forms of distribution and information sharing and to changes in what may be considered fundamental for music learning. It is a school that nurtures the tenacity new artistic visions may demand, the will to challenge society’s predefinitions and presumptions when necessary, and the perseverance required for artists to manifest the profound gifts they may offer to their evolving cultures. It is a school that embraces a changing world as a world of possibilities.
