Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My name is Brian and I teach guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, and ukulele with Music & Arts Greenville.
I've been teaching music since 1998 and have taught all levels from beginner to advanced in music theory, music reading skills, and technique.
Over the years I've studied music at Furman University, Bob Jones University, Pegram Studio and Anderson University to expand my arsenal of teaching strategies.
I have performed guitar/piano/mandolin/vocals throughout the East Coast for over 25 years with various artists, bands and ensembles including; 'Skyboat', 'The Stella-Rites and Some Free Radicals', 'Rachel VanSlyke', 'Drastic Measures', 'Creature' and 'S.O.S.'. Scored and recorded independent film sountracks for 'Ulta Films' and others. Performed solo classical guitar and/or piano for church services, weddings, funerals, art galleries, and private events. Is currently providing session playing and production/engineering at 'RC Studios' and currently performing with 'Rock Soup', 'The Indifferent' and as a solo artist.
I construct lessons to be customizable to each student's individual goals, skill level and pace of learning. Encouraging a good balance between technical skill advancement and practical application. My goal for students is to develop and grow in what inspires them to want to play music in the first place, to gain the ability to play what you enjoy and to sound as good as you can.
