About Brandon P.

Hello everyone! My name is Brandon and I am a experienced music teacher/musician. I currently teach music and direct shows at the world famous School Of Rock in West Los Angeles, and have been teaching there for 2 years now. I teach many instruments privately, and bands as well. I attended Musicians Institute, and have studied and written music, as well as shared the same stage personally with many very successful people. A couple to name: Mark Hudson (producer of Aerosmith and Ozzy Osbourne), Bruce Kulick (Guitarist for Kiss), Rudy Sarzo (Bassist for Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne), just to name a few. I am currently in a rock and roll band. Playing and teaching music is my passion. As time has gone by teaching at School Of Rock and privately, I have helped kids/people grow musically and as people. If you are looking for a dedicated, professional, experienced, friendly, easy going teacher, I am the teacher for you. Keep rockin' friends!

Brandon is the best of the best

I tried taking guitar lessons with other teachers in the past but always ended up quitting because it felt too hard. I met Brandon and got a really great vibe from him so I decided to give lessons a try. Brandon will make you feel totally comfortable and his awesome personality makes learning guitar really fun. He'll take his time and focus on whatever it is you want to learn and make sure you really understand it before moving on. After one class I had learned more than I had in any other classes I'd taken in the past and felt excited to go home and practice, which I never had felt in the past. He is incredibly talented and I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to learn from him.

Outstanding guitarist / guitar instructor!!

Brandon is a great guy. He is very easy going but at the same time has the presence of mind you want in a teacher; he pays strict attention to detail and finds ways of explaining musical ideas and concepts in simple easy to digest ways that make him unique among other music teachers. Brandon is an outstanding guitarist and guitar teacher! Thanks for all the help over the last six months Brandon! See you next week!
