Re: Brenton WHITE
I have five children, all of whom have had guitar lessons over the past two decades, with various teachers. Currently Brenton White is instructing my 12 y.o. daughter in electric bass and guitar. She has had two previous teachers.
Without a doubt, Brenton is the best instructor we have ever employed. He is a natural teacher, something which cannot be learned. His lessons are well planned and methodical and are executed with diligence and professionalism. My daughter’s progress, and her grasp of music in general, has been most impressive under his tutelage. The teaching material via White Noise Productions, of which Brenton is the principal and founder, is particularly helpful.
Brenton’s practical and academic command of music is beyond dispute. He is a widely respected performer and acknowledged as one of Australia’s leading screen composers.
I can recommend him as a music teacher without any hesitation whatsoever. I would be happy to amplify these remarks verbally if required.
