Cellist Brian S. is currently an active performer and studio musician in many genres of music, with performances ranging from touring with rock bands to giving classical performances at venues such as the Kennedy Center and, most recently, the White House, and has more than 60 album credits.
Brian believes that all students have different goals and learning styles, and has a passion for helping them achieve those goals. He believes that with a strong focus on the fundamentals of technique and a desire to learn, anything is possible.
Musica De Camara presents and commissions music by Latin American composers, and does yearly lecture-demonstration programs in New York public schools.
