Hello everyone! My name is Brad and I am ready to take your skills to the next level! I have a BA in Acting and Directing at Colorado Mesa University and have been consistent with booking projects since I graduated in 2010. Musically, I have been playing guitar for close to 20 years, piano by year for 23 and Bass for 14. Learning music can be very challenging, but as many of my heroes have said, "learn all the theory that you can, then UNLEARN it". What my goal for you is to help you unlock the door to your playing potential and help you understand music with feeling and emotion. Since I am also an actor, I will help you use the same energy so that you can become a deadly weapon with both skills! I also work with children at Jefferson County Head Start in Arvada, so in terms of your children interested in taking lessons with me you have nothing to worry about. Since I am also a performer, my schedule can change, but I will be in communication with everyone to re schedule or set up an online lesson. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Looking forward to helping you become the best that you can be!
