Drum and Percussion Instructors

Brandon Tobin

Piano, Drums, Improvisation, Theory, and Song Writing

Brandon was born and raised in Columbia Missouri. His dad started teaching him the drums when he was around 8, and he started piano lessons when he was 12. He loved growing up playing music with his sister and dad.

He plays anything he can get his hands on, but his favorite genres are classical, jazz, rock, punk, funk and everything in between.

He has always wanted to teach and is excited to be able to help teach music to anyone who is willing to learn! Giving the gift of music is the best thing you can give someone.
