Benjamin Costantini

“At Berklee’s campus in Valencia, I attempt to promote an inspirational classroom atmosphere and develop innovative projects with the students, such as a music industry blog or a series of hands-on assignments with local musicians. Together with industry veteran and fellow teacher Ferran Coto, I’ve founded Disrupción Records, the first student-run independent label on the Valencia campus.”

Casey Driessen

Program Director, Valencia, Spain Campus | 617 377-3509

“With more than 15 years of teaching experience, I’ve learned that no 'one way' works for everybody. This graduate program is designed to be flexible to the individual needs of musicians originating from a wide range of instrumental and genre backgrounds, while encouraging and developing their individual artistry. It caters to those who respect where they come from, yet desire to push their traditions forward into uncharted and exciting new territory.”

Enric Enrich

"I like to explain the necessary concepts in a basic way and illustrate them with practical examples related to music copyright or music business from which the students can take their conclusions.”

Daniel Flors | 617 266-1400 x3496

“I am aware that a teacher may have a tremendous impact on the way students play and write, on the way they feel and hear, and through our music, they may find the link to all wisdom. I want to help them establish a wonderful connection from their innermost self to their instrument, which is actually what playing with love is about.”

Lucio Godoy

"There is something magical about this process that has always fascinated me and continues to fascinate me. Sometimes I’ll spend one, two, or three days mulling over a cue, only to 'find' the perfect piece in the blink of an eye. Any other piece wouldn’t fit."

Gael Hedding

David Loscos

"Teaching international marketing to highly motivated students from around the world is a gift. Although the information about theoretical concepts is easily available anywhere, the chance of unfolding the international marketing process together with such a rich and diverse group of people turns it into a unique experience that resonates among students regardless of their profiles and vocations."

Victor Mendoza | 617 747-8282

“I have always believed that, in addition to developing strong jazz concepts and vocabulary, a deep understanding of the rhythmic, harmonic, and melodic concepts of music from Latin America the Mediterranean, Baltic countries, and India provides the musician opportunities and creative vocabulary, making a musician more well-rounded."

Emilien Moyon

Program Director, Global Entertainment and Music Business, Valencia, Spain Campus | 617 266-1400 x3497

"One of Berklee’s biggest strengths is to promote diversity and I think that diversity represents a wonderful opportunity for our students to enhance their learning experience. For instance, business students can interact with talented performers and composers on a daily basis. Therefore, business students have the possibility to develop transversal skills which are another key asset to be successful in the music industry."

Polo Orti | 617 266-1400

"At this point in my life, I hope that students studying with me have a great love for music and desire to learn. I can bring my knowledge with an attitude of trust and create a good environment, where the old techniques of pressure and intimidation that some teachers in other fields of music used to practice aren't needed."

Mario Rossy

"As a musician, I feel it is a privilege being able to express life through sound and rhythm, but that becomes a challenge not without difficulties. I love looking for something in our inner space, set it up in communicable terms, and share it with other musicians and audience. It's almost like a religion. But it requires a lot of work through many years in order to learn and develop a creative process—imitation, assimilation, innovation—and a life compromise to be able to grow constantly. I think that playing, improvising, arranging, and composing are just parts of that creative process."
