My 8 year old daughter just started violin lessons with Brian. He did a great job helping her feel comfortable and he boosted her confidence by telling her when she was doing something well. She's even more excited to learn!

Brian is an excellent and inspiring teacher. His teaching and performing always motivate me to keep practicing. I hope to continue studying with him for a long time!

Brian is a fantastic instructor! He is a phenomenal flutist and a natural teacher, and he's dedicated to bringing out the best in his students. He has made me a better player than I ever thought I could be. Who knew that singing and playing simultaneously could produce such an improvement in tone? Brian did!
