Click below for more information about Katie as a performer.
Bryan has been an active teacher and performer for the past 15 years. He holds a bachelor's degree in Music Education and a master's degree in Conducting, both from Temple University in Philadelphia. While in Philadelphia, he was a sought after choral tenor, performing professionally with numerous ensembles, most notably The Philadelphia Singers, the choir-in-residence of the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra, and the chorus of Opera Philadelphia. His voice has taken him to venues across Europe and Asia and he loves the feeling of community that singing with others brings.
As an educator, Bryan strives to foster a sense of independence within his students. While playing or singing with proper technique is at the heart of every lesson, he places an enormous emphasis on developing the peripheral skills necessary to be a well-rounded musician. For this reason, sight-reading, listening, and improvising or composing are staples of every lesson. He is a passionate teacher who thrives off of watching his students learn and grow.
