Engaging, easy going, and relaxed are all used to describe Brian's teaching style. He finds ways to connect with students of all ages to make them comfortable, helping them excel and reach their full potential. Childers' Studio helps students grow into expressive and imaginative musicians.  Our lessons build technique and music literacy, providing a strong foundation for a lifetime of music making.  

We provide instruction to students of all ages from young children to seasoned adults, helping you follow your dreams of learning to play piano and discover the wonders and richness music brings to life.

I love helping others discover the wonders of making music. Discovery is one of the greatest joys in life and being a part of this process with children, youth, and adults is fascinating and rewarding.

    Brian is my third and hopefully forever teacher. He is patient and so knowledgeable. He challenges me but also encourages and supports. As an adult learner I could not be happier.

    My 7 year old is excited each week to go to his lesson with Brian. He loves playing the songs he's been working on all week and earning a sticker. I appreciate how quickly he's learning and how much fun he is having at the same time.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to speak students or parents in person to intrducee myself and get a good feel for what it will be like to work together. From there it is as simple as working out schedules for lessons!

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Undergrad degree in Piano Performance from Appalachian State Uniersity; Masters Concentration in Church Music from Gardner Webb University. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Pricing is simple...

$30 for 30 minute lessons

$40 for 45 minute lessons

$50 for 60 minute lessons.

Ask about sibling discounts and summer specials. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with students of all ages, from pre-reading music experince classes for three and four year olds, to beginning piano lessons for children, youth, and adults, to students preparing for college entrance auditions. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Meet with the teacher first and make sure your personalities and expectations are a good fit with the instructor. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

The most important aspect students need to be aware of is time. Learning to play the piano and play well takes time, just like anything worthwhile, this is an investment in yourself (or your child). The amount of time spent preparing for lessons directly correlates with the rate of improvement you will see. More time equals more improvement. Many students begin lessons with the idea that they will just show up a few times and then they will be a great pianist. It takes time, patience, and diligence. Unlike most sports though, making music is something people regularly do into thier final years of life. It is something that feeds your soul and enriches your life!
