About Me

As I child I had an early interest in music, dancing and creative things. I took piano lessons and excelled at my chosen instrument, the flute, in band at school. I continued with my music training at Northwestern College in Roseville, Minnesota and graduated with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music Education in 1992. I worked for 11 years in my profession in various settings before I took a break to start my family. My experience includes teaching students in classroom general music, choir, band, piano lessons, and school plays/musicals. I spent six years at a private school (grades K-8), three years at a charter elementary school and 2 years at a public elementary school. Also, since graduating in 1992 I have spent a total of 16 years teaching private lessons both at Hovland Conservatory of Music and in my home. Along the way I further broadened my background by accompanying church choirs and congregations, playing for weddings, and volunteering to lead children’s music time at church.

I love music of all kinds and have a strong belief that everyone should experience the joy and power of it in his or her life. It is very rewarding for me to help students develop their skills as they discover a meaningful way of self-expression using a universal language. Teaching music is something I love to do and I know that fact reflects to my students resulting in an enjoyable experience for them as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
What can a student/parent expect from lessons with me? I can provide my students with a solid foundation of proper technique. This is so very important because you do not ever want to have to “unlearn” bad habits. I also include appropriate music theory, ear training and improvising for each level. I purposefully pace the lessons to prevent students from feeling frustrated. Instead, I work to generate excitement about the learning process and keep students motivated by their own progress. Furthermore, I am willing to accommodate a student if they have a special interest in a certain musical genre or a personal goal they are working towards. I encourage, but do not require students to take advantage of recital and performance opportunities that I provide.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Large music room: piano, flute, clarinet, mouth pieces for trumpet, trombone and sax, snare drum

*** Specialties ***
I have a lot of experience teaching students who are brand new to their instrument. I believe the beginning is a very important time to start building a solid foundation for all future musical growth. I love being able to help my students establish good habits from the beginning and influence the overall direction of a new student’s musical experience.

I love music of all kinds and have fun playing and teaching all the instruments that I listed. However, the two instruments that I have the most training on and have performed on are the piano and the flute. I would be a great teacher for private lessons to help a student excel in band at school or for a high school student preparing for contests or auditions. Also, I am very patient with beginners and would be ideal as a child’s first piano teacher or for an adult who has always wanted to play a certain instrument of his or her choice.

About Me

A love of music began in the third grade. I started on a silver metal clarinet and have not stopped playing. I am a musician, composer, arranger and performer. I hold a B.A. in music and have taught in the schools for 22 years. I bring extensive knowledge and humor to my teaching. I enjoy working with all age levels and pride myself on being intensely positive.

*** Lesson Details ***
The focus of music lessons is to overcome problems and increase skill and enjoyment in performance. I always want to focus on what was done well and carefully work on skills that will increase enjoyment. I will play with you to model and help you self correct as you learn musical concepts and musicianship. We will use method books for fundamentals and supplement with music that interest the students. After a time students will learn skills needed to perform a wider range of music

Brian G. Saint Paul, MN

Subjects Taught

Flute, Saxophone

About Me

Brian has been teaching music since 1985, leaving the University of Minnesota behind for the beginning of his full musical career.

Brian started playing instruments at the age of 10. He started out on the clarinet through middle school and in 8th grade switched to the tenor sax. He continued playing throughout high school in marching and jazz band. He went on to study music performance at the University of Minnesota in 1981.

He started playing professionally while in college where his music career took hold. In 1988 he came out with his first record called 'Coming Home'.

His presence increased in the Minneapolis music scene and in 1988 he signed with his first record label Cypress Records, a small jazz label under A&M Records. Shortly after, Cypress Records "went under".

In 1991, Brian started working for Prince in his band The New Power Generation, playing in his horn section. He continued working with him for 6 years playing on the albums Come (1994), The Gold Experience (1995), Chaos and Disorder (1996), Emancipation (1996), Crystal Ball (1998), and Vault: Old Friends For Sale (1999).

Nearing the end, he got a record deal with Prince and started Greazy Meal in 1995. The band produced 4 albums in 4 years and toured the midwest, Canada, and L.A.

When Greazy Meal removed itself from the scene around 1999, Brian could be seen playing around town and took time to become a father of three amazing children. He began writing, recording, and playing original music more often, the bands SmartMouth and The Fuzz most notably.

After a few years of laying low, he came back to the limelight playing and touring the US, Philippines, and TV circuit in 2003.

In 2006 Brian started playing with Taylor Hicks (winner of American Idol Season 5), touring the US, Italy, and TV circuit, continuing until December of 2012.

Brian would like to personally thank one of his instructors, Doctor Frank Bencriscutto, for taking him under his wing the summer after high school and helping him transition into college. Dr. Ben was a MAJOR influence musically and otherwise.
