Brian Lundell Piano Instruction Reviews

Talented Teacher

"Our family has  had lessons with Piano Brian for 3 years now. What I find helpful about  his teaching style, is that kids start playing on the first day. He  works in theory progressively, but makes sure the kids can play all  along. When they plunk out recognizable tunes, right off the bat, that's  almost all the positive reinforcement that they need! I also appreciate  that he meets the kids at their level, with just the right amount of  "push" to keep improving. For example, his style with our teen is just  right, but quite different than how he teaches our 3rd grader. I highly  recommend Piano Brian." Piano Family

Wonderful teacher

"Brian has been  a fantastic teacher. I was looking for someone who could work with my  young son who could sometimes be a handful. Brian was encouraging and  professional all at once. He focuses on technique and I was thrilled  that he had my son working on technique (scales, cadences) right from  the start. He has a knack for choosing songs that are engaging, many of  which he had written himself. Brian is very knowledgeable when it comes  to music theory and feels it is important that kids learn theory right  along with learning how to play. Included in his well-rounded approach  are lessons on the history of the piano and how the piano is  constructed. He truly wants his students to succeed. We're now in our  4th year of lessons with Brian and I am very happy with my son's  progress." akdonline

Brian is a great piano teacher

My son has been  learning piano from Brian for five years. We have had positive  experience from the very beginning. Brian is always encouraging and  patient. He picks the music that my son likes to play. He has his own  way of teaching that makes learning piano fun and not so frustrating  especially through the period of time my son is learning notes. Brian is  also flexible when it comes to scheduling make up lessons. I would  recommend Brian to kids especially beginners. Redmond Parent

Great for young children and older teenagers

"Our son  started lessons with Brian before 2nd grade and is still taking lessons  at 16 years old. Brian got our son excited about playing the piano and  over the years has tailored the music to our son's interests. He did not  have to slog through a series of piano books for years. Even with high  school activities, my son did not want to give up lessons. Brian adapts  his teaching style to fit the student. My son benefits from having 2  pianos available for duets, time for theory and time to play his own  compositions." ADS

Great with kids, incredible musician

"I am so impressed with Brian's teaching skills. He picks music to  suit the taste of the student, so they like playing. He has a gentle  style that makes learning music fun. I would highly recommend Brian to  anyone who has a child starting out on piano. My son started at age four  with shorter lessons, and moved on to longer lessons as his attention  span improved. Its been a great experience for him!" Bridget Horne

Brian really knows how to work with kids

"My son has been taking lessons from Brian since he was six--he's  almost 11 now. I've been amazed at his progress. He grumbles sometimes  about practicing but he's always happy to go to a lesson with Brian and  even happier when I pick him up. Brian does a good job of introducing  sight reading and music theory without sucking the joy out of playing.  Really, I think Brian is a complete gem for anyone looking to teach  their children piano. (I'm sure he's good with adults too but I can't  comment on that.)" Redmondmom

Gifted, Encouraging, and Flexible

"We have been with Piano Brian for going on 3 years and it has been a  wonderful experience! He is a gifted teacher and musician, and a very  interesting person to know as well. He works hard and expects his  students to work hard too, but he is very much a partner in their  learning and is not overly demanding. We've also seen great success with  the way he involves his students by letting them select a song they  would like to play - it's very motivating for his students. He has also  been very flexible working with us to find an available time for a  makeup lesson when the inevitable schedule conflict occurs. We have been  very happy with Brian and would highly recommend him to anyone  interested in learning to play piano or learning to be a better piano  player. " TonyaW
