Very good experience on our first lesson. Brendon worked with our 7-year-old son and was patient with the online setup. He did make us aware that having online lessons with someone that young presents a bigger challenge but with our help, we are going to make it work (my wife and I are musically-trained).Show More
My daughter really enjoys his teaching. we are learning Suzuki Cello book for our first lesson, and will continue to do it. Thanks.
My daughter loved her first lesson. She can't wait for the second.
He is very knowledgeable and patient. He gave me great tips that helped me immediately play better.
Brendon is a wonderful cello instructor for my son. He is not only patient but also very inspiring. He listens to our wishes and needs, and he designs the lesson plan to meet them. In addition, he is very good at building a strong bonding with his student. Brendon has recently moved away from our town, and my son can no longer taking lessons from him. But I know my son will always remembers Brendon fondly as his best cello instructor.Show More
Brendon is a wonderful teacher and a gifted musician. I feel like I have more knuckles than fingers when playing, but he's patient and has produced - in my own humble opinion - a competent cellist out of me.
Brendon is a wonderful teacher!
Great teacher! Very patient and knowledgeable.
