Berklee Alumni Spotlight: Sarah Scarlata ’97
Written by: Shantell Ogden ’05
For alumna Sarah Scarlata, Berklee College of Music was a jumping off point to a diverse musical career.
Scarlata grew up in Westborough, Massachusetts as the daughter of two music lovers.
“My parents bought a piano when I was five and I took two years of guitar when I was eight,” she said. “I had small hands which was limiting on those instruments, so when I was 10 I enrolled in drum lessons. It was a natural fit for me musically.”
