Brandon T Barnes

Teacher/ Studio & Live Drummer from Nashville.

I’m a Nashville-based musician who is available for live performances, sessions, tours, master classes and private instruction. I have been studying percussion instruments and drum kit since the age of three and ultimately I earned a BA in music performance from Carnegie Mellon University. I am currently freelancing in the Nashville area along with teaching at the School of Rock, Nashville.

My recording portfolio spans many genres of music including Jazz, Rock, Blues, Doo-op and Soul. I feel that one of my greatest strengths as a musician is my versatility to be able to play and perform many different styles, always striving to maintain the authenticity of the genre.

While performing music is my passion, I’ve discovered that sharing my knowledge with other students of music is rewarding as well. When I am not playing a gig, I can be found mentoring students around Nashville.
