About Brian B.

Brian teaches: Ages 5 and up
Teaching since: January 1995
Last sign in: Within two months


I studied music; violin performance, at the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore. I majored on violin and minored on piano. I then spent many years playing and performing professionally in many groups. I played in groups like the Los Angeles Baroque Orchestra and other modern music and classical groups.
Since I also like to compose, I picked up many other styles and learned a few other instruments.
I taught music for over twenty years, being active in the Music Teacher's Association and serving as string judge for the Certificate of Merit several years running.
I teach with the principle that anyone can learn anything that is given in the right gradient and this is what really makes learning music enjoyable; not learning a lot of worthless shortcuts but being able to play well and correctly without a lot of struggle or suffering.

I highly recommend Brian as a violin teacher. Brian has proven to be an excellent instructor, teacher and coach. He professionally and gently pointed out areas where I could make improvements, and showed me how to do it. He has great patience and a very effective way of communicating with me.
He is a violinist and a pianist and is expert at both which really enhances my lesson experience.
