Enrique Hernandis

Instructor Berklee Study Abroad

“I want my students, young people with high expectations, to enjoy the same experience that I've lived in my growth as a musician. I believe that happiness and effectiveness in the progress of a student is not caused by the student’s musical level but by the direction and speed of his or her educational experiences. So the secret of happiness and motivation is not a point of musical level: it is the slope in which the student is advancing.”

“When I’m teaching composition or any related subject, I am looking especially at motivation and involvement of each member of the class, however large it may be, and however high the musical level we are talking about, either in tonal harmony or orchestral composition. My deep involvement in the class has to be exactly the same with each one of our students. Each student is a new world, and I have to discover it.”
