After the first lesson we are very impressed.!
We weren't sure what to expect with an online lesson, but we are so glad we went that direction.

Saxophone · In studio

Mr. Brasell has taught my daughter for the past two years. In these two years, she has grown as a musician gaining confidence and improving each week. He is a very talented musician with a passion to educate and help students realize their full potential with his enthusiasm, energy, and love of music. I have been very satisfied with his method of instruction, and you will not find a better music educator in the tri-county area.
