“Brian Morris' wonderfully expressive and prodigious technical command of the classical guitar gives one pause for reflection as to the beauty and vitality musicians of his caliber give to this world.  His presentation of a rich and varied concert for the Michigan Composers Series at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts was memorable in setting sail the audience on a voyage through the fascinating contemporary classical guitar repertoire.  An inspirational performer, Mr. Morris captured the essence and spirit of each piece he played and was received enthusiastically by the audience.”

What do world renowned performers say about Brian’s teaching?                                                              

“ In April of 2008 Brian Morris’ students performed for me during a Master Class sponsored by the Grand Rapids Symphony.  The students’ fine performances were evidence of his excellent teaching.  They were well prepared, technically sound and played quite musically.”
