Book a Lesson with Brandon Buckley
Brandon is a Berklee College of Music graduate with a passion for all genres, though mainly popular music (pop, rock, indie, dance, electronic) as well as classical, ranging from Rachmaninov to Mozart. His lessons are fun, relaxed, and extremely effective and organized. With over a decade of teaching experience, he has learned the hard way what works and doesn't work! You will learn the things that YOU want to learn - not something out of a generic book. Brandon has taugh hundreds of students from around the world and is a full-time online music instructor.
You can throw out your old lesson books because each lesson is customized to exactly what YOU want to learn. Students are highly encouraged to expand their understanding of music by learning music theory, ear training, sight reading, and all other aspects of music during their lessons, but no motivation for wanting to take lessons is a 'bad' plan of attack. That means if you have a very specific goal, such as learning to play just by ear, or simply becoming a great songwriter, Brandon can tailor each lesson play to keep you on track so you can accomplish this in the shortest period of time possible.
Brandon is extremely laid back, encouraging, and fun, but he won't let you spend money on music lessons like they're going out of style. He strongly believes that students who enjoy music and taking lessons are the ones who will be most encouraged to practice, and therefore improve. You'll learn all the theory, scales, and exercises necessary to create a sound framework with which to appreciate music and make it seem ridiculously simple (or not if you have your own specific motiviation for lessons!) but you won't be getting slapped on the wrist or caught dozing off with repetitive drills and endless sight reading. If anything, you'll be shocked at how quickly the time passes and find yourself pumped to start practicing as soon as each lesson is over!
All materials are provided by Brandon and stored using Google Drive. You'll be provided with sheet music, guitar TAB, exercises, instructional videos made by Brandon, customized syllabuses and a host of other materials, all of which will be stored in one convenient, organized, and searchable location accessible from any internet device.
Brandon has over 2,000 piano scores and 5,000 guitar TABs accessible to you, as well as access to just about any piece of music you can think of. That said, if it doesn't exist on the Web, he can create it for you. He also has loads of charts and diagrams to keep any level of student in a constant state of discovery.
