Teaching since:
August 2010

Mr. Brandon S and his personal studio has taught private and group music lessons since 2011 and is currently available to teach lessons at your home, at his studio, and online.

Mr. S believes that all of his students are unique individuals who need a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially, and of course MUSICALLY. His desire as a music educator to help his students meet their fullest potential in those areas is to provide an environment that is safe, supports risk taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. Himself as the teacher acting as a guide, allowing the child's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and promoting respect for all things and all people are three elements Mr. S believe are conducive to establishing such an environment.

Where do I start? Mr. S is a God sent music educator. My children and their friends give raving reviews about how AWESOME music class was and how funny Mr. Smith is. I've never seen them so happy about any specials classes besides PE and Art and thanks to him, my kids love, enjoy, and appreciate music. Thank you Mr. Smith!

THE BEST! My granddaughter has never enjoyed music class. She would come home telling me how boring music class was. That was until she met Mr. S. He is gifted and passionate about music and it shows through the heart of my grandchild and her classmates. We love Mr. Smith and highly recommend.

Words can’t express how blessed I am to find Mr. S. This man trained my voice to sing in ways that I didn’t even know I could. He’s one of the BEST voice coaches I could ask for.
