Brian Elzey is a guitar, bass and ukulele teacher for beginning to advanced students at West Music Cedar Falls. He's studied guitar through private lessons and at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and the University of Iowa. He finds inspiration from many musical sources including, rock, blues, jazz, and country. Brian has been teaching at West Music Conservatory since 2006, and prior to teaching here he taught out of his home.

Brian has been performing in bands since 1995. He played in hard rock bands in Kansas City, jazz combos through the University of Iowa, and a blues band and oldies band in central Iowa. Currently Brian plays in Ernest T, a top 40 rock band based out of Waterloo. He has coached and performed with several Weekend Warrior groups. Brian is married with two young boys. He enjoys working out and woodworking. Brian has 2 pet dogs that he likes to take for walks and he and his family enjoy camping.

Brian is comfortable teaching beginning, intermediate, and advanced guitar in all styles as well as theory and composition. He also teaches bass guitar at all levels and is now offering Ukulele lessons. His teaching style consists of an individualized approach, drawing from the student’s musical preferences and goals. Creativity and improvisation are also stressed. He accepts students from age 8 to adult. If a child is under 8 they should consult the studio coordinator first. His missed lesson policy is that there will be no excused absences and no guaranteed make up lessons. If you go on vacation for over two weeks, the fee will be adjusted. If he isn’t at a lesson for any reason, the next month’s fee will be adjusted.
