We love Brian! He's been a fantastic first exposure to musical training for my 4 year old. Brian works at my daughter's pace to provide both confidence and challenge. And he understands that young kids will sometimes be moody, distractible or shy and he rolls with the punches. Brian also understands the motivational power of praise and is able to keep my sensitive daughter encouraged to keep trying.

Brian is an amazing cellist who plays in my band. He's a fantastic musician not to mention a great personality.
