Brian Smith is a dedicated musician who began his studies at the age of 12. Performing in various rock, funk, and big band jazz groups throughout his teenage years, Brian knew early on that music would be a lifelong pursuit. He completed his undergraduate studies at Temple University, where he performed with several campus ensembles, including The Swinging Owls Jazz Band under director Chris Oatts and the Night Owls Campus Band, in which he played percussion in various classical and concert band arrangements. He went on to attain a BBA to complement his music business endeavors, in addition to formal studies in music and music history. 

As a teacher, Brian focuses on helping his students to achieve their individual goals, and seeks to nurture each student's unique creativity. Students will develop discipline and independence in their playing and practicing techniques. 

Brian also teaches his secondary instrument, guitar, which he studied throughout high school and college. In addition to teaching private lessons, he has volunteered at a North Philadelphia church to bring guitar and drum lessons to underprivileged students. He also continues to keep an active performing schedule, playing drum set for various rock, funk, and big band jazz groups performing in hotels, restaurants and weddings throughout Philadelphia, Long Island, Wildwood, The Poconos and Manayunk. Recent performances include MusicFest and Steel Stacks in Bethlehem, PA in 2019.
