I have been studying with Brian for almost 5 years and I enjoyed every hour of his lesson. He has taught me how to achieve a singing tone at the piano; more importantly, he has opened up a whole new world of beauty for me through piano playing. He is an amazing artist--I feel really grateful that I had the chance to attend his recital and hear him live.
