Hello, thank you for visiting my site!

I wanted to put in a VERY HIGH review for Mandolyn. She was a great
teacher and really got me excited about learning the piano. I will greatly
miss working with her; however, I'm sure she will continue to excel at her
profession.

Brandon's teaching focuses on carefully developing solid fundamentals of clarinet playing, including embouchure, hand position, articulation, and air support, as well as knowing how to care for your clarinet.

Students of Brandon will be encouraged to participate in local youth orchestras and competitions, such as ILMEA, should they be interested.
