I am available to teach private lessons in the following subjects:
I hold a Master's Degree in Jazz Composition from the Manhattan School of Music, and have been teaching privately and in schools throughout Chicago & New York for over ten years.
Email me for rates! I can teach in my home studio in Brooklyn, via Skype or FaceTime, at Michiko Studios in Manhattan, or at your home (for an extra travel fee).
"Brian is an unending font of knowledge, experience, and patience. Every lesson leaves me incredibly excited about what I've learned and what we'll learn next."
-Will, a composition student
"What I like the most about Brian is that he is always smiling, always positive. I am a highly sensitive person, but I never feel discouaged when I take lessons from him. And even when he critiques, he does it in such a diplomatic way. He explains music theory extremely well, and I like the way he writes things down for me. Also, he is good at figuring out what's appropriate for my level. He makes helpful suggestions about what I need to do to improve, like playing long tones."
