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.
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.
My 6yr old daughter has been taking piano lessons & my 4yr old son has been taking music/piano lessons for just over a year & both of my children LOVE Mr. Childers’s. He is absolutely amazing with children & highly recommend!!!
Brian listens carefully to the way that I play and gives me concrete methods to improve where I am struggling. He gives me several options on how to practice during the week, and also teaches music theory as well as piano. He lets me choose the type of music that I want to play and if I don't like something, we move on to something else. Brian is also flexible with scheduling my lessons since I work rotating shifts.
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!

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