In So Many Words

Bram, is a Fantastic Music Teacher, my Daughter Swati is taking Tenor Saxophone lessons with Bram since she was 10 and at 11 she has learn so much from him. She has learn Technics from Bram on the Tenor Saxophone where later it comes up in her music class at her Elementary School Music Orchestra. Swati is planning to be with Bram thru her Baritone Teaching and Soprano Saxophone Teachings, when my Daughter transforms over to the other two Saxophones. From a score from 1 to 10...I give Bram a 10+ without even blinking.

Bram is inspiring me to continue playing the clarinet.

Bram is very patient and helped me to re-start playing the clarinet within only a couple of months. He addresses my weaknesses in playing nicely and with professionalism, is following my expectations about the lessons pointed out at the beginning and is inspiring and motivating me to play my instrument.
