Jaja helo, im one of the berklee valencia'sQuite BrightMusic - Performance
Jaja helo, im one of the berklee valencia's graduate first class, wow, i write this comments as a sort of catharsys, first thing is first, DO NOT ATTEND TO THIS WHATEVER CALLED SCHOOL, SAVE YOUR MONEY, FIND BETTER EDUCATION, EVERYTHING IS PRETTY MUCH BULLSHIT, SPECIALLY ON THE TEACHERS SIDE, attending to this was the single worst desicion in life, they are just a bunch of noobz claiming to be doing some great work, they actually are very unprofessional (no names obiously) i mean please check out the advertising don't you find it weird about a school were people are always happy and everything is pink, that only means one thing, for the ones that don't know or don't realize, they are way too balkanized with very high opinions about themselves no matter how really sucky the musical output is, in a true world were there are challenges and challenging situations people would be worried in some sort of way, even kings, clearly is advertising, if you knew who i was you would surly know im very talented, im saving my name for the sake of what is left of my musical career that was pretty much destroyed ( im very serious here) after attending this whatever it is, on the side of the business is a NO NO honestly none of that you'll find here, only good biz for them and mental masturbation that is actually killing the average talented people, so no biz and don't expect to have biz here any sooner since they really kill the people that can bring freshness to this world of musical cliches they had built, berklee valencia is a no no no especially if you are talented and searching for a serious music career.

im not a hateful dude, actaully im pretty easy going and respectful, and i bet you can wait for some more feedback like mine since i suspect im not the only one in this situation.hope anyone who read thins find it useful, if not, does not matters you stil have to keep this in mind because this are facts, out of eperience.
