Specialty: Piano, Drums & Guitar
Hi there! For those of you who don't know me yet, my name is Brenda Nguyen! I grew up being surrounded by music all the time. I started learning piano at the age of 4 (continued through till 2nd year at the music department of the University of British Columbia). I learned all different types of styles including classical, pop, jazz, improvisation, accompanying, song-writing/composition and much more! I am also a self-taught drummer and I started playing for church worship teams as the drummer. My love for music continued to grow as I grew up and by the age of 16 I knew I wanted to pursue music as a career. I studied at the University of British Columbia and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Percussion. I also picked up guitar along the way and I enjoy playing and singing with my guitar, playing classical guitar, and so much more! I have a passion for music, I love kids and I love teaching! This is the perfect career for me, because I am able to do what I love every day!
