- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
I've been learning music since the age of 5. And I, as a Berklee College student and multi-instrumentist, would love to spread my knowledge of music and encourage people to learn new subjects in the marvelous world of music.
My method covers musical material from the most basic tasks to more advanced ones. I teach basic, intermediate and more advanced Ear Training, Harmony, Arranging and Improvisation.
In the electric bass class we will begin with discussing student's proper hand position at the instrument, basic introduction sessions on the general buildup of the instrument and we will also listen to records when the electric bass was for the first time used in the world of music. We will keep going learning new songs, learning how to sight read in the instrument and study books and recordings that will help you to improve!

My name is Valeria Falcon and I am currently a student at Berklee College of Music majoring in Performance and Jazz Composition with a full-tuition scholarship. I can teach: Electric Bass, Guitar, Violoncello, Voice and basic Piano.
I grew up surrounded by a family of musicians, my father (who is a Berklee Alumni, Alvaro Falcon '80) gave me classes of guitar and electric bass. My mother, who is a professional singer, taught me vocal techniques to improve my singing skills. I also started playing the Violoncello at the age of 5 at the Emil Friedman School and Conservatory in Caracas, Venezuela. In this school I learned music theory and Violoncello techniques that aloud me to play with Arcos y Voces Juveniles de Caracas and the well known baroque orchestra Virtuosi de Caracas. At the age of 13 I started to get more interested in the electric bass and at 16 I auditioned to Berklee College of Music as an Electric Bass Player, receiving a full tuition scholarship.
