Although I stopped my piano lessons a while ago due to some personal issue, I really enjoyed my learning process with DeAnna. She organized her lessons very well and made me progressing every week. She's a really good teacher. Love her!
Daniel
Most single productive day I’ve had at the piano.
Martin
DeAnna has excellent credentials as a pianist and music theorist, but more importantly for me she is a patient teacher and good communicator who works hard to ensure that I learn and understand even the most basic skills and techniques. She is also fun to talk to and be with, and her love of music is infectious. She is an excellent teacher for an older student, and I imagine for younger ones too.

BEGINNING PIANO and VIOLIN - The foundations of music require many skills layered on top of one another. We will start by learning fingering, note names, and short pieces. The students will be making music even from the beginning. The lessons will progress from learning by rote to reading music. We will incorporate clapping rhythms, singing, and musical games.

INTERMEDIATE PIANO and VIOLIN - We will focus on refining technique, sight-reading, music theory, and building an exciting repertoire of music that they love to play and can share with others.

I look forward to meeting you!

Brandon is a great teacher! He connected immediately with my daughter and he has her excited about learning piano again. So happy I bought a lot of lessons in my package!
Tammy Wagner
Mr Brandon is a rare find as a music teacher. His passion for music and love of teaching are visible with every teaching session. His focus is first and foremost on the student, recognizing unique abilities and areas of challenge.

He is a skilled "growth mindset" instructor, his focus remains on continued progression and tackling difficulties as opportunities. He invests heavily in the relationship with the student allowing them to grow and explore in a supportive environment.

Our son has ADHD and has struggled with in some learning environments. I have been absolutely impressed with Mr Brandon's ability to adapt and create a positive music lesson even if he was having a "not very focused " day !

Music is a wonderful gift, especially for children with ADD/ADHD or other learning challenges, especially with a skilled teacher !

"She Knows What She's Doing. A Very Good Instructor.

Fawn really knows what she's doing. With a hit song under her belt, songs in films, tv shows and all the appearances/live shows she does, you'd think she would be pretentious snob. She is completely down to earth and eager to share her experiences and career with every one she teaches. One of the things that impressed me about her is the fact that she IS so busy, yet finds time for text messages/phone calls when I've had questions about voice, piano, music contracts, songwriting etc. She has helped undo damage to my vocal chords from a previous teacher and improved my range, taught me proper breathing and vocal technique, and given me a huge boost of confidence. Because of her being a stickler for details, her corrections have made my vocal chords stronger than ever! I no longer get hoarse from singing. She has even showcased me at some of the red carpet events she's at, to help get my face and career out there. She is the real deal. She doesn't waste time and is very result oriented and I appreciate that and so many other things about her. I've had teachers stretch lessons out, making more money, but this instructor clearly teaches because she wants to help people and for the love of it, not for the money aspect. Learning from her and being in her presence is a blessing, she's a gift to all of us who study with her. If you don't need warm and fuzzies, that's cool. Just know the bottom line: She gets you where you've gotta be. Respect!"
