About Brennan J.

Hi! I am a multi-instrumentalist professional musician and composer/arranger and I am capable and happy to teach all levels of students anything they would like to know or improve on. I specialize in low brass, especially bass trombone and euphonium, but I can teach all brass instruments (trumpet, trombone, French horn, euphonium, tuba, and all of the obscure ones) to any player, and I can also teach improvisation, composition, arranging, orchestration, and Sibelius notation software. I can also teach the basics of synthesis and keyboard synthesizer playing techniques.

Brennan was very knowledgable and helpful. My teenage son was very happy with his lesson. He really likes him and his teaching style. We are so happy we found such a good fit!
