You will learn how to play and identify notes on the keyboard, read sheet music, learn rhythmic values, play chords, and so much more. The piano is a very diverse instrument. It is a great tool to teach a student about music in general. In addition to learning how to play the piano, you will lean many basic music theory concepts.

About Brandi B.

My name is Brandi and I am ready to become your music teacher! Playing the guitar has been my passion for 14 years and counting. As a part of the talented music program throughout my high school years, I decided that I wanted to pursue music as a profession. I attended Southeastern Louisiana University for music performance and focused on the classical guitar as my primary instrument. I have played many gigs ranging from open mic nights, accompanying a choir, classical guitar ensembles consisting of up to 12 people, and my solo recitals. I also play the electric guitar, ukulele and the piano, with recently expanding interests for electronic music and synthesis.

Inspired by a successful start to my career in teaching music, I made the decision to return to pursue a Master's Degree in Music Performance. As I am working toward this goal, I strive to be as flexible as possible with my online students. I ask that my students notify me 24 hours prior to their scheduled lesson time if they need to cancel or reschedule that week's lesson.

Brandi is a great teacher and I love taking lessons with her. I tried to teach myself how to play the guitar and I couldn't figure it out. It's nice to have a very knowledgeable teacher who has similar taste in music.
See You Next Week!

Great feedback from the concert! Now Brandi's been working with me on basic classical - reading two or three lines at a time and going up and down the neck of the guitar with just the sheet music! No Tab Charts!! For me this has always been extremely hard, and probably the hardest musical skill for me overall is reading multiple lines simultaneously. Not great yet but - in quite a short time - have come Much farther than I was and am finally figuring out how to do it. Brandi has been super encouraging and patient and explains every step along the way when I get stuck - even multiple times if needed :)! Playing my normal rock or jazzy stuff with a lot more ease and "know-how" than before. She makes being pushed to your limits not only productive but also enjoyable.

I have a concert gig coming up in the span of a week playing guitar with a big band orchestra doing jazz or band arrangements of various popular songs including a big band arrangement of Play That Funky Music from the 70's. In other words not the easiest stuff to be playing :)! First lesson with Brandi and she cleared up all the trouble spots, tricky rythms and chord changes easily in an hour. She explains musical complexities clearly, knows what she's doing and at the same time makes it easy to understand and execute. I had read about her background in classical and knew she had to be good but was genuinely impressed with how well she understood jazz and funk styles better than I do. ( And I'm 28, have been playing since age 12 and performing publicly in multiple settings since 13) Great personality, a lot of fun to work with, and incredibly knowledgeable! Absolutely recommend!

Brandi was very patient with my very distracted, impatient 6 year old. My daughter wanted to play the ukulele, but didn't really want to sit through the lesson. We only tried 5 session and then quit, but Brandi was great throughout with suggestions for how to keep her interested and working with her. We will definitely come back to lessons with Brandi when my daughter is more ready.

My 7 year old daughter just loves Brandi. As a mother I think Brandi has been fabulous for my daughter. Brandi is very patient but also knows how to bring out the best in my daughter and gets her to reach higher challenges. They always have a fun and productive lesson.

Brandi is such a great person to learn from. She works with my schedule which is random to fine. Very laid back, but tough at the same time. She's always challenging me with songs i know and like. I highly recommend her as a teacher. Her experience is phenomenal.
