Walter Beasley
Over the past two decades, saxophonist Walter Beasley has artfully and dynamically redefined the phrase "musical Renaissance Man" for the modern generation. Considered by fans and critics alike as "the heir to Grover Washington Jr.'s throne," the Boston-based musician has long mastered an exhilarating high wire act of balancing a successful career as a contemporary jazz recording artist (the highest selling full-time professor/recording artist in modern history) and performer with an equally thriving presence in the field of music education.

Amazingly, Beasley has partaken in all of these exciting activities while maintaining a full teaching schedule at Berklee. Currently, he teaches vocal and rhythm section ensembles (in both classroom and performance settings), private sax lessons, vocal delivery for singers and improvisation for instrumentalists, both on campus and at home. He has also developed an active side business as a career consultant for aspiring musicians. His areas of expertise include: maximizing musical performance and skills; overcoming performance anxiety; jazz/R&B improvisation; vocal delivery; saxophone technique/sound production; and R&B/jazz ensemble performance.

One of the top five best-selling African-American saxophonists in the world since the late 90's, Beasley— while establishing himself as a regular presence on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz chart--has performed over the years with contemporary jazz and R&B icons Brian McKnight, Gerald Albright, Ronnie Laws, Kirk Whalum, Bob James, Norman Brown, George Howard, art Porter, Stephanie Mills, Vanessa Williams and Rachelle Ferrell. He has also opened concerts for traditional jazz legends Art Blakey and Dexter Gordon.
