Hello, I'm Griffin! I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Music degree from Cornish College of the Arts in 2014, and I have since been a guest lecturer at the university. In addition to teaching guitar, piano, and music technology to private students for over ten years, I have worked as a programmer and data analyst since 2016. I love helping students solve interesting challenges and reach their creative goals.

I am passionate about fostering my students' love for music. I love he...
My thirteen year old son had his first piano lesson (ever) last evening with Griffin B. (Basically, my son was familiar with middle C. He had never played piano before, but we had recently inherited a piano, and he expressed some interest in learning to play). During last night's lesson, Griffin patiently encouraged my son to familiarize himself with the keyboard, explaining notes, keys, even basic chords, in a way that was upbeat, patient, and fully engaged. I was in the background making dinner when I heard my son say, "Oh! Like this! I get it! Okay, let me try again..." At the end of the hour long session, I overheard Griffin tell my son that he really liked his passion and excitement about music. After the lesson, my son sat at the piano for over an hour, playing the beginning portion of Fur Elise over and over, using chords, his left hand (in addition to the right hand) producing the recognizable tune, all the while poring simultaneously over the sheet music Griffin had emailed him prior to the lesson. To my uneducated ear, it sounded as if my son had had way more than just one piano lesson. "I really like him, Mom!" he announced happily, "I want him to teach me piano!"
