Overview

Hello, I'm Brandon, and I have over twenty years experience performing guitar and bass guitar in churches, retreats, cafes, nightclubs, concerts, graduation ceremonies, weddings, funerals, and festivals. I am a natural at captivating audiences with my acoustic finger-picking style as well as my aggressive, frenetic, and always fun electric playing. I like to play acoustic rock like Neil Young, electric rock guitar like Metallica, and bass guitar like Red Hot Chili Peppers. Let me teach you how you too can be a rock star!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am currently accepting new students at all ability levels, but I don’t want to teach just anybody. I want to work with cool, nice, high quality people. Students must be very dedicated and willing to put time into practicing every week in order to progress rapidly to achieve your musical goals. I take teaching very seriously because I want to help people reach their goals and overcome their challenges. Student's lessons will be divided by learning a musical 'foundation' and learning your favorite songs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The teacher has a music room and living room to offer lessons out of. The music room includes a couch, two chairs, a computer, smart phone, tablet and instruments: guitars and bass. A music stand, metronome, tuner, and amplifier are also available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a Guitar Amplifier, Bass Amplifier, Instrument Cable, Music Stand, Metronome, Tuner. Students should have their own Guitar or Bass Guitar

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I like to play acoustic rock like Dashboard Confessional, electric rock guitar like Metallica, and bass guitar like Red Hot Chili Peppers and Primus.

quick and easy

I love the fact that Brandon preforms in the band at our church. My daughter is learning the guitar in a safe and convenient location. The pricing is fine and I see how much my daughter looks forward to practicing and impressing Brandon at her lesson. We will continue as long as she is happy and challenged musically .

Brandon is a great teacher

Some years ago I had guitar lessons from another teacher and I can truly say that Brandon is an excellent teacher. I am now learning some of the basics which I was not taught previously. I highly recommend Brandon.
