It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we've made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.

Today we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

We're the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.

She helped me get ready for the AP Music Theory test. I got a 4 and because of that, it waived my first semester of Music Theory in college! Plus, she teaches this at grad school, so she must obviously know what she is doing. Thanks Brianna!

I liked doing online music lessons with Brianna. She is timely, doesn't waste time, and what you pay is what you get, meaning that her price is high but the quality is high for lessons. Recommend her for music lessons.

She's really patient and wants you to do well. A little tough at first for my daughter but after the first few lessons, they both found common ground and now my daughter enjoys lessons!

Brianna truly knows what she is doing. Her approach when it came to teaching my autistic adult son was really tailored to his needs and he loved every lesson he had with her! She's incredible!
