One of my favorite things to do is to sit around the campfire with friends and family, guitar in hand, sand sing the night away! My personal style of guitar is voice accompaniment. However, I am more than happy to teach you the basics of Classical Guitar as well! Guitar is one of the most versatile instruments around, and I can't wait to get you started on it!

About Brandon S.

Hello! Welcome to my page!

I am a Christian first, a singer and educator second, and a nerd and Alaskan third.

I am a certified teacher of Vocal and Instrumental Music in the states of Alaska and Arkansas, and have taught these disciplines in the public schools of Alaska for three and a half years.

I am absolutely passionate about educating people, and showing people the beauty of making a joyful noise.

If you choose to sing with me, you will learn proper vocal technique, essential theory, how to hear music effectively, and how to perform well under pressure. I have loads of experience teaching this subject, and cannot wait to share that expertise with you!

Additionally, I am a student of Scripture, Piano, and Guitar. I love teaching these subjects as well, and am more than ready to get you started in these disciplines!

Finally, I am a lifelong nerd. Whether it's American Government or Geography, I am more than happy to help you study for that exam.

Thanks for checking out my page! Have a great day!
