Brandon was a great viola teacher for my son. He was very thorough and helped to prepare and perfect a piece for a youth orchestra audition.

Brandon is a wonderful person! He explained everything in detail and used a lot of visual demonstrations. He was very patient with my limited tech ability.
I no longer feel that I have to worry about learning violin. He told me I can learn and that he believes all people can learn. I feel safe and confident as his charge on my new adventure.

Brandon is a great person to work with if you or anybody you know needs a Viola tutor! The past couple of my years in high school as a junior-varsity violist, Brandon has helped me achieve many goals that I have set for myself. He is patient with me when it involves working diligently to accomplish whatever needs to be accomplished with lessons. When it comes to him tutoring people, he cares about how the student progresses and shares his love for music with his students so they are able to understand everything that needs to be understood. I highly recommend him!

If you are interested in Violin or need extra help, then Brandon is the private lesson teacher for you! He is a hard working person who does not give up on anybody and is willing to go the extra mile in his teaching if you do not understand something. When I was in High School, he was able to keep me on track to where I did not fall behind. At times, I did not believe in myself and I got frustrated easily but then Brandon helped me become a better musician and did not give up on me. I hope you choose him to be your private lesson teacher because he is one of the best to teach you.

Brandon used to tutor at my school or even fill in when our instructor was away. All of my classmates loved him and I don't think I've ever had a bad experience with him. He's super skilled in both violin and viola and I probably would have stopped playing violin had he not helped me. He even encouraged me to continue playing when I transferred to a school that did not have an orchestra. He's very patient and he never discourages a person, only teaches and rewards.

First off, I would like to say Brandon is amazing at what he does when it comes to mentoring his lesson students. He has mentored me for about 4 years now and it has been an amazing journey! If you are looking for a Viola instructor, then Brandon is the one to select for lessons.

For many years, I have been afraid of playing my violin in front of people. Since meeting Brandon, he has taught me to not be afraid of playing in front of people because he has always told me that music is a language that people will understand if I just played with confidence and show others what I am capable of doing. With his teaching and guidance, I am here to say that I no longer become scared of showing my musical talent. If anybody is looking for a Violin tutor, I highly recommend Brandon.

He has always been there for me when it comes to me achieving my goals with the violin. He has helped me come out of my shell when it comes to playing solos and playing in front of people in general. I have improved my playing thanks to his knowledge and skills in music. I would recommend Brandon to anybody wanting to learn the Violin and achieve their musical goals!

Brandon has helped me break out of my shell. I used to be shy and very self conscious about my playing. With Brandon's help, I was able to gain confidence and play from the heart. He helped me get through varsity orchestra and improved the way I played. Although it was tough, he pushed me and believed in me. He is a very good teacher!

He's taught me for a couple years, he helped me through varsity orchestra, he helped me through many contest and concerts and although all that was tough, he never gave up on me, so if you're looking for a teacher, choose Brandon Glenn, you wont regret it

Brando has helped me improve my abilities as a violinist. He made lessons fun and innovative allowing me to advance at a faster pace. Whenever I had a question he always had an answer and tips that help. He has patience and enthusiasm for the instruments that are so overwhelmingly contagious that I just wanted to keep learning more and more songs.
