Brian O'Connor has been one of the most popular music instructors in our area for over twenty five years. Being a live performer since childhood and still performing, he has a repertoire of well over two thousand songs. His teaching style is unique and is always geared toward the individual. His goal is to teach the student to play their favorite music as quickly as possible which also gives them the incentive to practice. He has a talent that enables him to just listen to a song and play it. Therefore part of the students lesson is reading music, chords and rhythms, improvisation and learning current songs that appeal to them. Brian teaches guitar, drums, saxophone, bass and flute and works with many of his students on improving their vocal skills. He teaches students ranging from children starting at about eight years old to adults of all ages. Every summer Brian holds a jam fest concert open to the public with his more advanced students jamming out to classic rock such as Clapton, The Beatles, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and ELO.

Pictured below are some of Brian's students having a great time at the annual "2014 Jam Fest concert". which Brian refers to as his All Star Band,  also pictures of previous Jam Fests, benefit concerts and some of Brian's students during their lessons in his studio.
