Teaching Artist, Guitar

Brendan was a BMS faculty member for 15 years. He was the coordinator of the guitar department for 12 years, and in 2008, he founded Guitober, a month-long annual celebration of Guitar (sponsored by D'Addario). In addition, Brendan taught private lessons, classes, and ensembles at BMS and produced the school's more significant events, including their "90th" celebration and "Spring Recitalfest" - both events featuring over 100 performers.

Brendan's Notes

Brookline Music School and its community have been one of the most profoundly meaningful relationships in my adult life. I've had the great honor to coach, connect, and learn from countless students for 15 years.
