Brian is an expert in his craft and even more of an expert on how to express his mastery of content into terms that I can understand. He has a real gift for finding the best way to help his students truly learn. If you want a teacher whose number one priority is ensuring your growth as a musician, this is it!

The first time I used Brian's expertise was when our local band came up short for a bassist. I asked Brian to teach me the essential bass runs to get through our commitment Not only was BRIAN an excellent teacher, we asked him to sit in based largely on his professionalism and skill. Brian was up to speed in no time and added much more to each song - a bonus that made the whole problem fade away. I would not hesitate to recommend Brian as a teacher .

Whether it was Pro Tools, Ableton, or Logic, Brian was able to help me solve any problem I had whenever they came up. He is a very patient teacher, and helps guide you through the learning process in a way that is specifically tailored for YOU. Great guy, extremely easy to get along with. Would HIGHLY recommend!

I struggled to comprehend the course when I took it myself, but working with Brian helped me really understand the concepts. Whenever we met, our lessons were very personal and tailored to what it was that I needed help with, which he explained in a concise, knowledgeable way. I wouldn't highly recommend Brian as a tutor for anyone seeking help in this subject.
