COVID-19 UPDATE - All Lessons have moved online due to the current health crisis. We successfully use a variety of contemporary platforms such as ZOOM, Skype, FaceTime and openings are available for new students!

With  over a decade of private teaching experience, Brian has taught students of all ages, from beginner to advanced, in both one on one and group classroom settings.  Students from his Northern Virginia based studio have become members of the VBODA All-Virginia Concert Band and gone on to study at schools such as Shenandoah Conservatory at Shenandoah University, the University of Virginia and George Mason University.   Whether the focus is on the many styles of drumset, rudimental, orchestral and mallet studies, or music appreciation, Brian's curriculum is catered specifically to the needs and goals of each student.

 "Brian has been teaching my son for 4 years and has become so much more than a teacher.  He is a coach and mentor and has played a huge role in his development through his teenage years...and I, as Mom, am so grateful for the day my son’s percussion teacher gave us his name. "  - Laura A.

 

"Brian is an excellent teacher and musician. My lessons are some of the most rewarding time that I spend. I’m not a young man and I have a disability with my left hand. Brian has worked with me on technique and improved my ability on the drums. He will work out a learning program based on what you want to get out of playing the drums. He provides constructive criticism in a way that helps you learn while never being negative."  - Jim O.
