Hi! Thanks for checking out my TakeLessons profile. In the past 20 years of teaching, I've taught hundreds of students how to play the guitar, and I'm proud of every single one of them! Some have gone on to become teachers themselves, some have gone on to become successful performers, and all have developed a wonderful hobby to last a lifetime! Thanks to some of the wonderful teachers that I had the privilege of studying under; both as a young high school student, then later at the college level at Berklee and Umass, I've developed a broad range of influences to enhance my own music creativity, as well as to relate to the needs of students of all different backgrounds. I'm equally as experienced working with children, teens, and adults of all levels. I do have some experience working with people with learning disabilities such as adhd and Aspergers. I look forward to the opportunity to help you or your child learn the guitar, and answer all of your questions!

Guitar · In studio

My son starting taking lessons from Brandon when he was 9 years old and continues to this day at age 14. Brandon keeps him thoroughly engaged and focused and easily tailors his lesson to his style of learning. He plays to his interests and teaches him songs from his favorite bands. He loves his rock camp in the summer where he puts together a band of musicians for the week. His passion for teaching is evident and his connection has been invaluable to my son's growth and confidence in music. I would highly recommend Brandon.

I have been taking lessons for about 4 1/2 years with Brandon and it could not have been a greater experience for me. I started at the age of 41 without ever playing guitar before. I now know how to play several songs and am able to do some singing also. I have always loved listening to music and to now be able to play songs, and to do it well, is all because of him. He is able to get the most out of his students with his teaching and making it a lot of fun.
