About Brent

Jennifer K.
As a teacher of music (violin, voice, and choral) and a Classical singer, and colleague of Brent, I think the most important aspect of teaching is to take a personal approach with each student to see what "fits." Every student learns differently, and Brent recognizes that. He puts a tremendous amount of thought and creativity into the development of his students. Too many teachers today have a "cookie cutter" approach to teaching, and in my own experience, this turns students away from working on music later in their lives. Brent has the opposite approach, he is committed to developing the skills and love for Classical music simultaneously in the student, which has a more long-lasting affect on their schoolwork, concentration, character, and social life.
Guy A.
He is a very dedicated classic artist that is very knowledgeable in his profession. I strongly recommend that everyone work with him.
Cloret C.
Without reservation, recommend Brent as an enthusiastic and thoughtful instructor-mentor to those seeking to actually enjoy the experience of mastering music and piano in particular.
As an observer, I'm impressed with Brent's teaching method, and ability to rekindle in young adults the interest and enthusiasm they may have experienced in former times for playing music at the piano.
As a sensitive and proficient accompanist, Brent works patiently and conscientiously with the singer; putting one at ease, even performing the most challenging works of classical composers.

Piano lessons will be unique with me because I am privy to all genres of music. From a students perspective, I want a teacher who is knowledgeable but who also makes learning fun and interesting. My approach will be to practice the technical things such as: notes, sight reading, key signatures, and chord progressions while saving time in our lesson to have fun and thinking beyond the "dry" technical lessons. Not only will I work to improve your music knowledge, I will work with you to develop creative skill and musical ideas. For those looking to go in another direction then classical training, my lessons will be geared toward chord recognition, music creation, and music theory. Do you know of songs you always wished you knew how to play? We will break them down and learn how to play them once we get down the basics. Music is something that is coded and once you learn the rules you will have the ability to create your own music!

I place high emphasis on music literacy and take time to help my students reach fluency when it comes to both reading and writing music. Every lesson, part of the time is spent focused on music theory to build understanding of not just piano but music itself.

Piano shouldn't be boring, it shouldn't just be Bach, and it shouldn't be endless, pointless exercises.

Piano should be fun, interesting, and practical. Theory, scales, and exercises should be helpful, practical, and directly tied into pieces a student is learning, and each student should get the opportunity to work on pieces they're interested in, not just keep to standard repertoire only.

I tailor piano lessons to each student, their goals, and their musical tastes. While I use the Faber Piano Adventures curriculum, students are always welcome to bring in extra pieces to work on or ask for help finding something specific. Every student will learn the basics of sight reading, playing by ear, improvising, and harmonizing--then work more on whatever they are interested in.

As a professional pianist, I will teach practical skills that can actually earn my students money when they get advanced enough, such as reading lead sheets, playing with the timing of a piece, and accompanying

Perfect! Denise takes a very professional and friendly approach in teaching my child to play piano that's to provide a solid foundation for her in future. She is highly organised in preparing for her classes (blending music theory, concepts along with practical sessions) and my daughter looks forward to each class in learning new techniques and challenging playing practices. Highly recommend Denise!!!

My kid loves his weekly piano sessions with her. She has been really helpful in helping my child learn piano. Also, she encourages my son to perform on stage and has helped with his stage fright.

Colin is great to work with, he was good at gauging where I am in my piano journey and listening carefully to tailor his lessons to my needs. He gives me as much theory as I can handle or want and is really good and patient when I don't understand. I give him top marks as a teacher!"

I've been going for a few weeks now and I feel like I have already picked up a ton that I could not have learned on my own. She pays a lot of attention to my form to make sure I am not picking up any bad habits, which is exactly what I was looking for in an instructor.

Lessons are always super clear and encouraging. I never feel like things are going too slowly OR too fast.
