Brandyn's Music Lessons
(VIRTUAL LESSONS NOW AVALIABLE)
I want my students to learn something that they will beable to use to imedietly show off to the world after each lessons. Unlike many traditions lessons, I focus on realworld applications rathers than pointless drilling of scales and arpegios. In my experiance of teaching this way, I found that my students actually want to practice and I see them get better quicker because of this.
I love seeing the progress in my students. It's exciting to see them progress throughout the lessons as they develop an interest and begin to understand the concepts being taught.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
1. Get a baseline of where the student is musically. Based on what the students goals, I can modualte the lessons to fit their needs.
2. Depending on the students goals and genre they desire to learn, I will transcribe a song at their request and break down the song structure to the student. I will also teach them the basic music theory behind the song as well as show them how to apply these concepts to their instrument.
3. Lastly, I will teach the student how to be self motivated in practicing. I will also teach proper practicing techniques and give recomendations to gear that will make their learning experience better suited for them.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have taught guitar and bass lessons since 2014. I am a recent graduate from Utah Valley University with a B.S. in Digital Media/Digital Audio Production. I own a small studio in Irvine and I have clients all over the world.
How did you get started teaching?
I started when I was probably 18. I knew a family from Church who wanted their kids learning something musical. I became their kids teacher and the kids loved it! From word of mouth I ended up getting some more clients and I've been loving teaching ever since.

All ages, from kids, to young adults, to adults.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I recently had a song of mine played on one of my favorite podcast!
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Really make sure you put in the time. Practicing is everything. The brain is a muslce and the more you work it, the quicker you'll develop muscle memory to play just about anything.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
What do I want to get out of these music lessons? Do I want to play my favorite songs? Do I want to join a band? Those type of questions will give you purpose each and everytime you pickup the guitar.
