Just started lessons with Brian and I know I’m going to learn so much from him. He is very legit, on time, and in depth with the lesson plan. Definitely recommend!

I met Brian Swartz my first year at USC. He was by a long shot the most accomplished and talented improviser in the USC big band. I watched him and learned little tricks, like he would keep a little note book and write down lines that caught his ear. Which I’m sure he later went back and committed to memory in the practice room. Anyway, long story short, any musician can learn lots of good stuff from this brilliant musician.

Bennett R. - 5 out of 5 stars - He’s great. Extremely knowledgeable about technique. He’s been hugely helpful in assisting me in developing my tone, my range, and the fundamentals of playing. He knows music. His love of jazz is infectious. Brian has brought music alive for me.

Janna S. - 5 out of 5 stars - Brian is great at reading the kid. He knows when to push them harder to excel and when to hold back and make it fun. He finds a way to explain things so that they really understand. We've been going to him for lessons for 3 years, and are very satisfied.
