We are so happy to have found Brad for my 8 year old son. Quite apart from his obvious musical skills which I appreciate as a fellow musician, Brad has a wonderful gentle but firm manner which allows him to impart that knowledge to a wiggly kid without ever seeming frustrated or raising his voice. His expectations are high but appropriate and this has inspired my son to practice without pressure or nagging. He offers exam and performance opportunities which are an important part of developing a musical skill. And finally his flexibility is exactly what my family needs. We recommend him very highly.
