About Brianna S.

Hi, I'm Bri! I'm a graduate of North Central College with a BA in Music (Emphasis in Composition and Percussion) and a minor in History. I absolutely love music, every single aspect of it. I love to make music a part of everybody's lives who want and need it. I want to help you with your musical needs. I have been playing percussion for 19 years, singing for 25, and playing piano for 20 years. I was a member of a recording and performing Chicago band, Oblio and Arrow, where I provided backing vocals and helped with the song arrangements. I am currently a member of Trip City Lights, an LA local funk/soul band, where I provide lead and backing vocals. I also record vocals for different artists hooks, jingles, choruses, and songs (covers and originals). I have also composed/arranged various pieces for ensembles, bands, vocal groups, choirs, plays, musicals, commercials, etc. I've worked with folks locally in LA, and all over the world. I love what I do!

History has always fascinated me. The way our world has developed and changed and continues to evolve is amazing. Everything can be tied back to the past, and I feel it's important to take a look back, put yourself in that time, and really study how things were to help understand why things are the way they are now.

Crocheting and knitting are a couple of good habits/hobbies I picked up about 10 years ago. I sell scarves online and I'm always working on some sort of project. I will have you knitting and pearling with the best of them!

Music, history, crochet, and knitting....I'm your girl!

She's the sweetest, most patient, and talented vocal coach I've worked with. Didn't know I needed one until exactly one session with her, and now I *need* her! Highly recommended.

I went to college with Brianna and we were in the same concert band. She is a highly skilled musician! She definitely inspired me to grow as a musician myself by helping me learn songs and being a great player/singer herself. After college I joined an originals band. After a time we needed another singer/percussionist/keyboard player. I immediately thought of her and she shortly joined after and was an amazing fit!

As a former band member of Brianna's I very highly recommend that you take lessons with her. She is incredibly helpful, positive, skilled, and a genuinely good person who is easy to work with.

Best of luck in your musical endeavors!

I wanted to make scarf for my cousin's birthday, but I didn't have any training and the crocheting books were intimidating. Bri was patient and knowledgeable with her instructing. Now my cousin has a beautiful scarf.

Brianna is very patient with my two girls. She is a very good teacher and I have really seen an improvement with their singing. They are more confident now than when they first started.

What I didn't know

I felt I had a good grasp on Modern history until my eyes were opened to facts that I did not know existed. Wonderful illustrations, and organization and research. Wonderful lesson. Can't wait for next session!
