Obtain fundamental skill and technique in playing the piano from a passionate piano instructor.
I've been teaching Piano for 5+ years in both public schools and my private studio. I train my students to have fundamental music skills that break the barrier of being just a piano player; I train musicians! To play solo or work in a band, to prep for an audition or develop skills as an improvisor, I am confident in my ability to help people foster a healthy relationship with Music. I started as a classical pianist and switched my focus to jazz when I went to study at university. Areas I am proficient and tend to teach: Finger Power -Scales -Arpeggios -Chords -Inversions Technique -Hand shape -Posture -Weight vs Speed -Rotation Sight Reading -Rhythm exercises -Note reading -Chord symbols -Lead sheet interpretation Ear Training -Interval practice -Chord quality -Melodic dictations -Rhythmic dictations Repertoire -Jazz -Classical -R&B -Rock & Roll -Video Game music -Movie Scores Qualifications: Bachelor in Jazz Piano Performance Washington State University Outstanding Soloist @ The Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, 2016

Brandon is a great teacher! He connected immediately with my daughter and he has her excited about learning piano again. So happy I bought a lot of lessons in my package!

Mr Brandon is a rare find as a music teacher. His passion for music and love of teaching are visible with every teaching session. His focus is first and foremost on the student, recognizing unique abilities and areas of challenge. He is a skilled "growth mindset" instructor, his focus remains on continued progression and tackling difficulties as opportunities. He invests heavily in the relationship with the student allowing them to grow and explore in a supportive environment. Our son has ADHD and has struggled with in some learning environments. I have been absolutely impressed with Mr Brandon's ability to adapt and create a positive music lesson even if he was having a "not very focused " day ! Music is a wonderful gift, especially for children with ADD/ADHD or other learning challenges, especially with a skilled teacher !
