This music teacher is in the perfect profession and truly has a gift as a teacher by having the ability to asses where the student is at and what the next step in the learning process is. Hi greatest gift besides being a super nice person is his ability to decipher your questions and get to progress very quickly!

I worked with Brian in both formal and informal situations for about four years. He gave me lessons on Saxophone, he helped me with music theory and aural skills, and we played gigs together. We also discussed and worked on music history, improvisation, and composition/arranging. Throughout all of this, Brian was always friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Any student would be lucky to work with Brian. As a middle and high school band teacher, I can say that Brian is qualified to work with students of all ages. Finally, he's simply a great guy to be around!

I've worked with Brian on my songwriting and he is always professional, an incredible musician, and a genuine teacher! He always goes above and beyond to make sure that I am getting the most out of my lessons. He has helped me write songs that have landed me amazing auditions and gigs and is always pushing me to grow and follow my dreams.

Brian is someone you want to know!
