ABOUT

Hi, I'm Bri! I'm a graduate of North Central College with a BA in Music (Emphasis in Composition and Percussion). I absolutely love music, every single aspect of it. I want and love to make music a part of everybody's lives who want and need it. I want to help you with your musical needs. I have been playing percussion for 17 years, singing for 23, and playing piano for 19 years. I record vocals often for different artists hooks, jingles, and entire songs (covers and originals). I also sang backing vocals and aux. percussion for the Chicago based band, Oblio and Arrow. Since my move to Los Angeles, I still help out with musical arrangements, and backing vocals as well. I teach voice, percussion/drum, and piano lessons in the Hollywood area, as well as online. I have been a part of various choirs (concert, gospel, jazz), bands (concert, symphonic, percussion ensembles, marching, drumline, rock) all within the 22 years I've been in music.

Again, I love music, and it is my passion. I love to perform, and I love to bring music into any and everybody's lives.
