Brian L.

Sandy, UT

About Brian

I have been teaching for 15 yrs. and playing for 34 yrs. I absolutely love to watch the learning process take shape. I get a great deal of joy from teaching and witnessing students pass and achieve greatness. When they overcome what seem like insurmountable odds to them and then perform something flawlessly, especially in a live setting, It just does not get any better than this. I cannot imagine doing anything else with my time. I have a strong ability to connect with each individual student and create a personal lesson plan for each and every unique personality. Depending on the person, I wi
ll personally tailor a lesson plan for that individual based on their natural ability, coordination skills, mindset, musicality and overall rhythmic sense. I also try to give each and every student the confidence needed to get up in front of an audience or crowd of people and still perform with elegance and dignity. Just relax and play. That is what it is all about, right, having fun. Let's play.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a professional lesson plan in place. I like to teach from literature and also from feeling and hearing the music. I am very amiable and straight forward with my students. I stress very strongly the importance of a good practice routine. With lots of practice you will become a great drummer. But, fun is what everything is all about. If you do not have fun then I have failed. I have never purposely failed, so Lets Go.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate from Home, Separate Entrance, Music studio soundproof, Parents and Friends Waiting area with couch and full view through glass window of drum room where lessons take place. Sound can be piped into waiting area or completely muted. Lesson room has two drum sets and state of the art Audio Equipment set up for beautiful sound production and clarity. I also use video playback with studio quality sound to increase learnability. This has been proven to be a very successful tool in the learning process!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Sticks, Pad, Snare Drum and Lots of energy! Let's Rock.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Rock, Funk, Punk,Country, Metal.
I also teach Jazz, Swing, Latin, Big Band, Afro-Cuban.
I focus on three main areas:
1. Reading music
2. Playing with recorded music
3. Rudiments and Stick Control
Plus of course proper technique and dynamics.
I am also associated with local Middle School and High School Jazz Band and Orchestra Teachers. I can greatly improve your students ability to compete and participate in the Jazz Band, Orchestra or Percussion Classes taught at the Middle to High School level. Let's Swing.

OUTSTANDING INSTRUCTOR

As an instructor Brian is patient, consistent and has many angles for reaching students who may be struggling to gain musical concepts. He finds lots of ways for his students to observe professional drummers and opportunities for his students to perform at whatever level they've achieved. The studio is well equipped and comfortable with an great observation area for parents and friends of the student. If you want to learn drumming Brian is the one to contact!

Couldn't be better

My son has been taking drum lessons from Brian for several years.We were looking for a teacher that would teach the important stuff like reading music, basic beats, as well as the fun stuff, learning songs. Brian is everything we were looking for. My son loves to play and enjoys going to lessons. Brian has also provided opportunities for his students to attend workshops & concerts put on by celebrity drummers. If your kids want to learn to play drums, Brian is the guy to teach them.

Katie D.

Spanish Fork, UT

About Katie

At just 6 months old my mom discovered me humming “Silent Night”. By age 2, I would sit in the bathroom, holding aloft a Reader’s Digest from which I would “read” aloud, belting gibberish at the top of my lungs. Needless to say, my mother quickly enrolled me in the children’s performing group “Sunshine Generation”, since then its been 23 years of singing, dancing, acting, playing piano, playing guitar and playing the ukulele non-stop.

I love music and I love teaching! I have been studying the subject for decades now, two and half to be exact. First, in private lessons with wonderful teache
rs, then in Junior High, and High School. Then I entered the realms of college at Citrus, Riverside City College and my current educating grounds, Brigham Young University(Commercial Music Major). I am a music composer. I write music, lyrics, and score to Film/TV/promotional videos. I am currently on iTunes. I am loving and caring about the students I teach. I've had experience in teaching individual lessons to over 100+ students, singing with touring jazz orchestras, pop/rock groups and directing choirs.

Music is a lifestyle, and it is the lifestyle I love to live. If you want to learn your music skills, let me teach you! Im super fun and I will help you get to the next level! Thanks for reading this, I appreciate it. Don't you feel like you know me a little bit better?

*** Lesson Details ***
If you take lessons with me, you can expect progression! This takes top priority in my mind. It is very important for my students to know that I encourage keeping track of their progress on their chosen instruments. Setting goals and reaching them can be very satisfying! I recognize that every student has different skill levels and I will teach to the style that they best adapt to. One final note to add, they will be loved!

*** Specialties ***
Many genres excite me, however, I excel in Pop, Jazz, R&B, Classical, Country, Contemporary Christian, Broadway, and Singer/songwriter.

Years ago I majored in guitar at USC, and I taught it for years as well travelled around the world performing. I am particular with my daughter's teachers. Katie is great. She's knowledgeable, relates to my daughter well, and she sounds great, which is why we picked her in the first place!

Pleasant Grove, UT

About Charisse

*** Specialties ***
Hi! My name is Charisse and I'm excited to meet you! I've been playing the violin since I was 4, and I love it. As a child, I was taught with the Suzuki method; however, I am not a certified Suzuki teacher. I received a bachelor's degree in music from Brigham Young University in 2011 and a master's degree in Linguistics from the same university in 2014. I was recently a member of the Georgia Philharmonic, a community orchestra. I have taught violin lessons for a total of about 5 years. I look forward to helping you reach your musical goals!

About Chris

I am first and foremost a cello teacher, but I have a very diverse background. I have played in five jazz ensembles, eight orchestras, and a few bands here and there. I've attended three universities and have learned from many different teachers and teaching styles. In addition to the cello, I play the piano, guitar, bass guitar, drums and double bass proficiently. I've been teaching on and off for the last eight years, and have come to love teaching lessons 1-on-1. I first attended USF studying cello performance, then BYU-Idaho studying cello performance.

Richard W.

Provo, UT

About Richard

My goal is to help students ENJOY the piano by finding ways to make it easier and doable. I have a very useful approach in helping students become self sufficient to sight read very well, to see patterns, understand music theory to either help them play well, or to even create their own music(I compose a lot of great music as well) I couldn't sight read very well until I was 16, but I had a great sight reading teacher that showed me how to develop it, and now I can say that I'm one of the best sight readers out there that I know. I would love to help you learn the piano, and I will do my be
st to make learning as effective as possible. I especially enjoy teaching those who quit and would like to try again, because I know what that is like.
