Stanley Clarke

Bassist, composer, producer Clarke, whose prodigious talent, 40+ albums and 60 film scores, multiple Grammys, Emmys, critics’ and readers’ polls, and gold and platinum records have made him one of the most recognized and respected names in the annals of contemporary music, has selflessly and generously created opportunities for talented, emerging musicians to further their education and realize their own creative vision.

For more than a decade, the Stanley Clarke Scholarship at Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music has provided substantial financial assistance to outstanding student performers since its inception and creation by Stanley in 2002.  In recognition of his exemplary and extraordinary support of music education, Stanley was awarded the first-ever honorary Doctor of Music degree from Musicians Institute in 2009.
