Before I got a degree in music, I was self taught, so I know what it's like to be on both side of musical understanding! Because of this I'm extremely passionate about my students musical growth and I find it to be vital to the human experience. I learned mandolin well after the guitar but fell hard for it and made up for lost time. I've the ability to translate the concepts if you're a guitarist, or if you want to learn guitar after mandolin. Love this instrument!
About Brendan F.

Hello! My name is Brendan "B" F, I'm an award winning singer-songwriter / guitarist (2020 John Lennon Songwriting Competition grand prize winner), and passionate music educator. I've been doing music full time since graduating with a B.A. in Music from NPU. I've been in love with music since I was a kid and that is still what drives me to this day, and is the fuel for my love of passing the torch by teaching music. My holistic approach gets folks of all backgrounds to be swimming in the ocean of music from day one, by merging practical application of theory and by staying in AWE of the experience of music making. Guitar is my primary instrument, but I play many others and incorporate an encompassing view of music on the whole in to learning the guitar / music.

Brendan’s passion for music is contagious! My son’s musical growth is a direct result of his lessons with Brendan and practice. I’m so glad my son has this opportunity to learn.

I’ve been taking classes for approx 2 years and have really enjoyed learning from Brenden. He’s Ext really knowledgeable about any instrument and music in general. I’ve gained so much and even though I’m still a beginner I have a deeper understanding that I wouldn’t get from watching you tube or another online learning method.
