« Brandon tutored me in General Chemistry all the way back in 2009 at UCSD Oasis Center. He is excellent at breaking-down difficult concepts and making sure I understood how to apply what we studied to the test. He helped me pass the class with a B after failing the year before despite having private tutoring then as well. I would highly recommend him as a chemistry tutor. »

San Diego music teacher offering virtual/in-person lessons in guitar, bass, violin, & piano to students of all levels & ages. Classically trained & taught for 5 years at the Romeo-Bates Conservatory.

Methodology

I recognize that all students have different expectations of what they want to gain from taking music lessons. Expert musicians will always agree that learning the fundamentals of music theory first is critical to have a foundation to build your own personal style upon. I like to move as rapidly as a student is capable through the fundamentals and incorporate practical techniques as early as possible that students can use to explore their personal style and begin expressing themselves through their music. I require all students to dedicate part of their learning experience to music theory and reading musical notation.

Background

I have been playing music for over 20 years and spent most of 2020 as a recording artist for several labels. I began to teach music theory and guitar at the Romeo-Bates Conservatory while gaining my Ph.D. in Chemistry. As many people know, music is tremendous in its capacity to promote creative thinking, encourage cognitive development, and coordinate fine motor skills. I have worked with children as young as 5 years old and with adults undergoing cognitive or physical rehabilitation.

Brandon taught my second quarter organic chemistry laboratory class and everyone wanted to take his class. He has a unique style of engaging the classroom and making the whole class excited about the material. He has a great sense of humor but also maintains control of the class to ensure everyone is following his instructions and is able to ask questions as they arise. I later hired him as private tutor through my next quarter of organic chemistry. I know students that have hired Brandon through all six quarters of general and organic chemistry. He was the most sought out tutor and eventually even after raising his rates stopped taking on new students. I highly recommend him *****
