Overview

I have been enthusiastically teaching music lessons since I finished my Bachelor of Music in 2004. I have students of all ages and demographics. I focus on making learning to play an instrument fun.

I teach guitar, piano, electric and upright bass. My performance experience ranges from Bach to Hendrix. And I have the ability to help you reach your musical interests and goals whether just for fun at home or if you dream of being a professional musician on stage, I can get you there.

Great teacher, took his time with my daughter. Made her eager to go home and practice some more, on her toy piano.

Brian's cool - he bought a book for me to get going and has an unstructured, but approachable way of teaching. Looking forward to more.

I found Brian to be a very good instructor. He was always on time, very patient, and was very knowledgable about all the different types of music styles. I was a slow learner and he was able to work with my difficulties and he found a way that worked for me. He is very personable and easy to get along with. I'd highly recommend him.
