Teaching Experience: Brandon has 13 years of experience teaching private lessons and group classes/clinics. He has taught musicians at the preschool, elementary school, middle school, high school, and adult levels. Brandon has taught many styles, including classical, jazz, pop, and gospel, and he regularly has high school students accepted into All State Band and the Kentucky Governor's School for the Arts.
Teaching Philosophy: In short, disciplined practice is essential to learning music, but learning how to make that practice fun and enjoyable is the trick to really reap the rewards of personal practice. I teach every student how to read music. I have my own program or plan that I cater to each student's needs, and I'm always happy to talk and adjust that plan to fit the student's needs. I want to make sure each student enjoys the process of learning.
