First time I met mr. Victor Mendoza was 6 years ago. He took us and a couple of students out for tapas. He was actually the first faculty member I met at the Valencia campus.
The thing with Victor is, is that he’s so likeable. A great man with the best sense of humor and so much passion for his profession. He’s a musician who knows how to teach as well. Keep in mind that not every musician is a great teacher.
His students all admire him, not only cause they are impressed with the work he has done, but mainly cause he makes time for each and every one of them. He’s the kind of teacher who wants to make his students better. They all know him and he knows all of them.
The students arrive at Berklee with a dream which is to have a successful career in music. Victor knows what the life of a musician is all about and he knows it’s not an easy one. The way he approaches the studentst and guides them is very admirable. He loves music so much it’s important to him that the quality of the music is maintained and that the future of music is save.
Read the interview I did with one of the kindest music teachers around in the Portraits section.
