Inquiry welcomes back DONALD KROODSMA. He is a well-known authority on birdsong and professor emeritus if ornithology at the University of Massachusetts. A few years back, Kroodsma was wrestling with what he wanted from his academic career and he decided to bicycle across America with his 24 year old son, listening to the changing avifauna along the way. It was a great adventure. His account of this road trip is told in the new book LISTENING TO A CONTINENT SING: BIRDSONG BY BICYCLE FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. This is a unique book that you not only read, but listen to. Tune in and learn all about it.

Berklee's mission is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career.

Developing the musicianship of all our students is the foundation of our curriculum. We believe that the lessons and qualities derived from that work—the self-discipline needed for excellence, the empathy required of music making and the openness and curiosity essential to creativity—are critical to achievement in any pursuit, musical or otherwise.
