I have extensive experience playing live on stage and in the studio with such diverse artists as Dwight Yoakam, Chuck Berry and KISS. I love pop, rock and country and have a deep knowledge of music theory and how it can be practically applied. I truly love playing music and sharing my knowledge and experience has only deepened that love.

About Brian W.

Hello, my name is Brian Whelan and I'm offering virtual lessons on voice, guitar, piano, bass and music theory. I have experience teaching one-on-one lessons on all of the above, and have also worked at Musician’s Institute in Hollywood, CA in one-on-one and group settings.

I have extensive experience in the studio as a singer, musician, arranger and producer - working with such artists as Dwight Yoakam, Chuck Berry and KISS. I would love to share some of the knowledge I gained throughout my experience to help YOU get a better understanding of music. I offer a holistic approach to learning music, combining practice technique and music theory with real-world application.
