About this pro

I offer private lessons on piano, saxophone, flute, and bass guitar.  These lessons can be taken either in person at my home in Nashville, TN or online using the Skype video app. 

One of my strong suits as a teacher is being very patient and caring with each student.  I always try to find a balance of making each lesson fun, yet challenging.

I can quickly assess a student's skill level and adapt lessons to custum fit their needs, while still making sure they get the must-have basics for musical growth.

I have been teaching ages 6-adult for 13 years.

I have played on stages for thousands of people and played on TV many times.

Music has been the greatest joy in my life.  I enjoy getting to share that joy with others and teach them how to replicate the sounds that they already listen to and love.

    Bryan is an phenomenal musician, definitely one of my favorites to work with. He is also trustworthy, you can be sure that your or your child's musical development is in good hands!

  • Lynda Adams

    Bryan is very professional and makes every minute count, with the added bonus of friendliness and a great sense of humor. He stretches me as a student, but with a gentle and patient manner. His balance of knowledge and humility set him apart as a unique and desirable teacher. I love his teaching style and the way he explains new concepts, making it easy to remember them. He is an incredibly talented musician and I feel honored to glean from him. Thanks for opening up the world of Jazz to me, Bryan!
