About Brandon P.

I started learning piano by the age of 4. Started composition by the age of 5. At the age of 12, I started guitar and never turned back. Music was always the ULTIMATE escape. To me there's nothing that compares to the feeling I get after completing a song, or the rush of a good performance. I decided that I'd rather do nothing else in life but music. After high school I went to the famed Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA., where I was taught by the most amazing musicians I've ever known. Some of the teachers who influenced me were Dan Gilbert from the Guitar World magazine, and David Oakes who trained with Andre Segovia (famed classical guitarist). After that, I continued with my Bachelors in Music at ENMU. My influences are a wide range. I love any music with shred guitar. Anything virtuosic is what I love. I enjoy playing everything from Latin, classical, blues, all the way to heavy metal. I have a lot of on stage experience that has served me well, and my mission is to give back the inspiration that has been my love for music.

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important thing with any instrument is that you're enjoying what your doing. If you're not having fun with guitar, then you're probably not going to stick with it. I teach beginning to advanced guitar and my students really enjoy the lesson plans. My lessons vary from student to student depending on what they want to accomplish, and what they need to succeed. After the student reaches a certain level I get them to play with other musicians. Sometimes I'll bring in my drummer and hop on the bass so the student can get the feel of playing with a full band! I expect a lot from students and they seem to have no problem delivering,

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio- includes amps, guitars and recording equipment. Custom built computer designed for studio use. Pre-sonus Firepods. Focusrite Sapphire pro 26. Ton's of pedals. Pro Tools 10 Professional

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have backup amps and guitars just in case. I bring all the materials for the lesson plans to the student's home.

*** Specialties ***
classical, rumba, metal, classic rock, hard rock, shred, Brazilian, fusion, blues, and most Latin styles.

Brandon is a great teacher and I definitely recommend! He's tailored the lessons right away to my music interests and skill level while still taking time to focus on the techniques I need to learn for bass. I've had a few lessons online and have already learned way more in these few weeks than I would ever have learned on my own. The online format works great for my schedule.

Brandon is a great teacher. I had my first lesson with him yesterday and he can play and takes the time to show you exactly what you are doing. I was skeptical of an online lesson with a teacher but it was a blast and in my first lesson I learned a lot of valuable things that I can put in my toolbox. I look forward to learning and to keep taking lessons. Oh and practicing! Highly recommend Brandon.

My first lesson with Brandon was a really instructional and inspiring interaction. Brandon listened to my goals and inspired me to become disciplined in practicing every day. His future classes and goals for me where explained after the first class. Both he and I have an understanding of where I want to be in the future and I know he will do everything he can to help me achieve my goals. Thanks Brandon!

.very good lesson for an initial lesson. Brandon definately has the knowledge and skill set that I'm seeking but it will take several more lessons to see a clear path to where we are heading. At this point I think our personalities are compatable.

We were so pleased to meet Brandon he was a great guy. Hunter was so excited and can’t wait for his next lesson. He showed us what he learned on his first lesson we were shocked he could do something just on one lesson. Thank you Brandon.

My first month of taking lessons with Brandon has been great!! He's a very well-educated instructor, and has pushed my knowledge and skills in several areas. He took his time to assess my skill, and created lessons that challenge me. He's introduced me to several genres already that I wouldn't have normally looked at before. He also does a fantastic job of teaching me the theory behind what I'm playing. Couldn't be more pleased with the experience, and look forward to taking many more lessons with Brandon.

5 star teacher!!

Brandon is personable, knowledgeable, talented and very funny! Not only does he prepare great lessons that are suited for me and what I want to learn, but he also brings new styles and techniques that challenge me and broaden my interests!

Brandon is one of those people that you instantly feel comfortable with and my lessons are fun. I feel like we are just hanging out playing music instead of sitting through a mundane lesson.

Can't say enough great things about him! He's like the Beethoven of guitar!

Brandon, you rock!!

Brandon is able - and willing - to listen to the issues and concerns I have and address them with insight and clarity. He has been able to help me become not only a better Guitar Player, but a better Musician.

I WANT TO LEARN IT ALL. Brandon is super easy to work with. He has the lesson plan put together ahead of time ready for the session. I have a basic understanding of music and guitar. Brandon is by far, the best guy around to help me delevop and get me to the level I want to be at.
Very patient, very fun. I think I will have to get him and his family up to my place for a cookout and roller coasters (I live near cedar point, the roller coaster capital of the world). We will definitely become friends. Great guy! Great teacher! This will be fun!

Great first lesson. Brandon’s very personable and knowledgable. Particularly like how he provides a video summary of the lesson at the end for reference during practice.

I've had weekly acoustic guitar lessons as an adult beginner for a little over a month now. I consider Brandon to be an outstanding instructor for several reasons: He makes it a point to understand my interests & goals, and always keeps the lesson plans moving in this direction. Brandon is patient with the learning process, and he also keeps things dynamic and challenging with a good balance of music theory, technical skills development, and application. Each lesson pulls me out of my comfort zone but he is careful not to overwhelm me. It's a pleasure to be instructed by someone who is so highly proficient with such a deep understanding of music, and who also wants to share their knowledge and experience with others to help them grow. I highly recommend Brandon.

Brandon has been an amzing teacher! He has shared with me so much more than just learning chords and songs. His positive light has been such a blessing for my path towards understanding music and discovering so much more about the guitar! I have seen such an improvement in my own abilities and understanding of the guitar.

I started taking guitar lessons from Brandon a few months ago. I didn't know much about guitar playing. I found Brandon to be very knowledgeably and extremely patient. He provides the motivation needed to learn to play. He is very intelligent and a genuinely down to earth person. I have seen Brandon perform on stage with one of his bands and he is an incredible guitar player. Lastly, I consider Brandon a friend and not just my guitar instructor.

Puts a fun spin on learning!

My daughter is 10 and has been taking lessons with Brandon for about 3 months now. She has learned a lot and is starting to feel more comfortable with the guitar. She was starting from a total beginner, so Brandon has also been teaching her the basics of music theory.
He is always in a good mood and has fun with the lesson, but also does a good job of keeping the focus on learning. He has a plan for what she needs to learn next, but he allows the student to make the choices and set the direction. He is patient about certain aspects being more difficult to learn.
It think Brandon could teach anyone to play guitar, since he really lets the student set the tone, but his demeanor is great for kids. My daughter looks up to him and knows that he is cool, which helps her remember that learning the guitar is cool.
I appreciate that he isn't an over/under communicator and that he is always there and on time for the lesson. He is professional, but not overly strict or "all-business."
Thanks Brandon!
