Born in Washington DC and raised by two teachers, Brad is naturally suited to run B&B Music Lessons. With 25+ years under his belt as a professional musician Brad knows what kind of systems teachers need so they can focus on their craft and further hone their skills. It takes more than just being a great player to become a great teacher and B&B Music Lessons has a system in place to find the best teachers available. A product of great teachers himself, as both parents are retired MCPS teachers, Brad is committed to providing the highest level of music instruction possible to B&B Music Lessons students.
Brad’s professional accomplishments include playing trumpet with DC’s legendary Chuck Brown until his untimely passing in May of 2012. It’s a testament to Brad’s talent that a music legend of Chuck Brown’s status would seek his talents and keep him employed for 13 years. Brad has also shared the stage with the likes of Prince, Kenny G, Bootsy Collins, Aretha Franklin, Thievery Corporation and countless other notable artists.
Brad has produced two solo CD’s under his own independent record label “Lundy’s Lounge Music”. Grammy Award winning producer Carl Burnett put his magic touch on both projects which can be heard here: http://cdbaby.com/all/bradclements
