Music has been a very large part of Bryan’s life from an early age. He began studying piano at age 5, progressing quickly to add violin and voice, and also organ. Bryan earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music from the University of Utah, with emphasis in Organ Performance. Bryan studied with renowned organist Linda Margetts and has accompanied choirs across Europe. As a vocalist, Bryan has sung with world class choirs, including the University of Utah Singers and the Salt Lake Choral Artists. Bryan’s work as section leader (Baritone) in the University Singers assisted in the choir winning the Grand Prize at the Florilege Vocal de Tour, international choral competition in Tours, France. This qualified the University Singers to participate in the Grand Prix of World Singing held in Tolosa, Spain the following year, where they again took the grand prize. Bryan has taught orchestras in various public schools through Riverton Music, where he regularly composes his own arrangements for his orchestras. Bryan also teaches piano, violin, and cello privately. As an outdoor enthusiast, Bryan enjoys a wide range of activities including backpacking, hunting, canoeing, fly fishing, and fly tying. In recognition of his artistic abilities and attention to detail, he has been invited to be a guest fly tier multiple years at both the Wasatch and the East Idaho Fly Tying Expos. Bryan is the recipient of the Silver Beaver award through the Boy Scouts of America. Bryan enjoys spending his leisure time with his wife and 4 children.
