I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of ear training, improvisation, and technique. I've studied many styles, classical, carnatic, latin, but specialize in jazz. I have 4 keyboards and a grand piano and enjoy playing together with students as an instructional tool.

I went to Bryan for a piano lesson--it was great! He was extremely patient and definitely knows his stuff. He was able to carefully and clearly explain challenging musical ideas to me. He also provided very practical tips that almost immediately improved my piano playing. When teaching, he is able to demonstrate even the most complex of techniques. The lesson was informative and well taught! None of my previous teachers even come close. I'll definitely be back!
