Overview

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 want and 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 15 years, singing for 20, and playing piano for 17 years. I am currently in a recording and performing band, Oblio and Arrow, and am also working on orchestrating a musical with a company.

History has always fascinated me. They 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 6 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!

Brianna is so sweet and very helpful. She is easy to learn from because she's very patient, which you don't always get with teachers. I feel I have improved a lot since working with Brianna

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.

World History
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!
