I graduated from the University of Idaho in May 2014. I earned my degree in Instrumental Music Education and have been teaching privately for since 2008. My main instrument is violin, and I am qualified to teach viola, and cello. Before moving to Arizona, I taught many violin students through my own private studio and through the University of Idaho Preparatory Division. My students ranged from ages 3 to 50. I have taught private instrumental lessons to grades 2-8 at a private school and I currently work as a full time 5th grade classroom teacher at a Great Hearts school. I continued their intermediate orchestra program and started the beginning orchestra program in the 2015-2016 school year. In the 2016-2017 school year, I piloted a successful beginning instruments club. The majority of my experience is with students age 3 through 9th grade.
As for general education, I have completed my certification classes for grades 1-8 and will be submitting the paperwork in the summer of 2019. I have taught as a lead teacher for 5th grade for 3 years, and have experience working in 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms. Additionally, I have tutored students from first grade through middle school in math and reading/grammar/writing.
I primarily teach lessons in the Gilbert area where I teach full time. I also accept lessons in Tempe and Mesa. Students outside of this area are welcome to travel to my house in Tempe. My travel availability is limited, but my home studio availability is far more flexible.

Brianna has helped me progress with my violin rapidly, and she is very patient and kind. Her studio is great and there is a calm, quiet atmosphere there. I would recommend her to anyone that loves the violin and wishes to progress in their learning.
My daughter really enjoyed her first lesson and is very excited. Brianna is so patient, kind and knowledgable.
An excellent teacher for my 7year old daughter. Very patient, on time, and engaging. An excellent teacher and mentor.
Great teacher with lots of tricks and advice for students to practice with and improve their play.
