Over the years, Brian has developed fun and engaging lessons to keep students motivated to play guitar. Beginners to Advanced, he is able to spark the imagination of musical understanding. Brian graduated from San Diego State University with a B.A. in the Performing Arts. His background in classical music is featured with exercises and techniques to help strengthen, stretch, and coordinate the hands. Together with my students, we experience a wide range of music, from the Classical Era, Ragtime, and Blues, to Classic Rock, County, Pop. I encourage my students find their inner voice and to be creative while learning proper technique, practices, notation, and lead-sheet reading. The love for music has many approaches. Brian teaches Guitar, Ukulele, Banjo, and Bass. He worked as the music director at Temple Heights Elementary Leadership Academy (2005-2018) in Oceanside, CA for 13 years.

Through out the year, public performances are great ways to keep students practicing. The right teacher should make the lessons engaging, understandable, and be able to convey musical concepts in a fun and easy manner. Brian works hard to be the best teacher, mentor, and musical influence he can be for his students.

 I graduated with a BFA from Kent State University Kent Ohio. I retired from Franklin County as an art teacher and am now teaching private lessons to adults and children. My degree was in studio art and art education so if you want to learn the basics or to improve on what you already know I work mostly in acrylics but I can teach oil watercolor dry sculpture.

John harris profile

John Harris

I am an adjunct professor at Motlow State Community College and normally teach on the Moore County Campus. I am originally from south Florida (West Palm Beach to be exact), and my family and I moved up here to Tullahoma in the summer of 2018. My wife, Mrs. Harris, is the D2L analyst at Motlow and is also based on the Moore County campus. We have been married for 18 years and have two children: an 11 year old boy and 9 year old girl. I am a violinist and a conductor having obtained two bachelor's degrees from Florida State University, one in violin performance and one in music education. I obtained my Master's in conducting from Florida Atlantic University. I have performed in many different ensembles, but I prefer the symphony. I have been a high school orchestra and band director.  Before moving up here, I actually served as an administrative pastor and have been heavily involved in the worship ministry both in Florida and here in Tennessee. I currently hold the post of Worship Pastor at my church, and I play my fiddle all over Tullahoma including some of the musicals at South Jackson Civic Center. In the fall of 2019, the piano professor, Mrs. Maurer, and I also debuted a concert series at Motlow featuring the piano trio. This past spring, we continued that series featuring the string quartet and piano quintet. My passion is to teach and to one day build and conduct an orchestra program in this area. I am looking forward to working with all of you.
