Hi there, I'm Terrell! I’m just a man with dreams and goals working and living in New York City, NY.
TERRELL FOSTER-JAMES was raised in the city of Chelsea, Massachusetts. He didn’t realize his love for music until the 8th grade after he joined the Boston Children’s Chorus (BCC) at the age of thirteen. From that point on, music, acting, and teaching became his life. Learning theory, ear training/musicianship skills all unfolded slowly one by one making his future career a definite. Terrell completed his undergraduate studies at the prestigious, Berklee College of Music ('14) with a degree in Professional Music. His concentrations included Music Education, Musical Theater Performance, as well as continued effort in perfecting his craft of educating others through Vocal Pedagogy.
While at Berklee, some of his major performances include, but are not limited to, performing with Phillip Bailey of Earth, Wind, and Fire, for scholarship recognition under Mr. Bailey’s name, and had the amazing opportunity of performing for Mr. Quincy Jones. Before his undergraduate studies began, he was a part of Berklee’s world renowned City Music program, the same program that chose him, and 13 others to receive a Full-Tuition Scholarship to attend Berklee in the Fall of 2010. He thoroughly enjoyed his time at Berklee, received various influential assistance from faculty members including, but not limited to, Winston Maccow, Rene Pfister, Lawrence Watson, Nichelle Mungo, Sharon Brown, Broadway Music Director/Conductor Eric Stern, and his most influential private instructor, Alison Wedding.
