Piano & Vocal Instructor
Since the age of 4, Briana has been on stage, sharing her gift of singing with others. Throughout her growing up years, she studied classical voice and piano that helped stir her passion to both perform and write music. In 2003, she moved to Minneapolis to further her music studies at North Central University where she earned her B.S. in Music. Before opening up her own music studio, Briana was a teacher with the Yamaha Music Education system for five years, where she completed their rigorous teacher exams and certification program. She also worked for four years establishing and directing a choir program for a private school in the Twin Cities.
The influence her various music instructors have had on her has fueled her passion to teach & share music to students of all ages. In 2016 she recorded her first EP album entitled Lullaby Trio. Briana continues to perform music across the Twin Cities for various events. Briana’s teaching philosophy is to build a solid music foundation in ear training, sight reading, technique, and theory to enable students to play the pieces they desire to play. During her spare time, she enjoys being outdoors in nature, biking, hiking, running, and doing yoga.
