Anita Brandon has over 30 years of teaching experience, having been associated with Western Baptist College, Multnomah Bible College, various public schools, an international Christian school in Seoul, Korea, and a multitude of private piano students. For 15 of those years, she used her musical creativity playing piano, directing choirs, writing and directing special programs, and coordinating worship services in her husband’s pastoral ministry in churches in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.
Brandon received a bachelor’s degree from Western Baptist College in Salem, Oregon, and a master’s degree from California State University in San Jose, with emphasis in piano performance in both. She has continued to challenge herself in performance and teaching through active participation in local MTNA chapters. She was instrumental in establishing and becoming the first president of the North Idaho chapter where she now resides.
Brandon has spent many years developing material for teaching very young children the concepts of music, and is currently researching and developing a theory of learning styles in music. She also maintains an active teaching schedule in her private studio, where she continues to compose and arrange for students.
