I'm a guitarist and educator based out of Raleigh, NC. I received training at the University of South Carolina (Bachelors of Music, 2011) and East Carolina University (Masters of Music, 2015). I am an active performer in the Triangle area, drawing inspiration from American roots music, classical, and jazz traditions.

I have seen hundreds of students over ten years of private teaching, working with beginner to advanced students of all age levels. I teach in a wide range of styles, and I specialize in classical guitar and flatpicking (bluegrass/old time).

I hope to help you along as you grow as a musician and a guitarist!

Starting guitar again as a senior citizen, Brad is an excellent teacher. He’s patient and very helpful to get you playing and enjoying the guitar again.

My son and husband have been taking lessons with Brad for 6 weeks. They are thrilled with him and they have both made a lot of progress. Brad is the first teacher that has inspired my son to actually practice between lessons. :) He is highly recommended.

Brad Farmer is a classically trained guitarist with an emphasis in Bluegrass guitar. He has the perfect teacher "temperament" and never gets frustrated with me...very patient and able to provide great insight on the best ways to practice so that you can obtain your goals quickly. While taking lessons with Brad, I have made marked improvements in a short period of time. Highly recommended!
