music & art
We couldn’t be more honored to have some of the most talented and diverse instructors work with Brillante. Below are just some of the teachers who have shared their gifts of music and art.
It is my aim to give my students the tools to be able to reveal something about that which they see outside of themselves, and learn how to capture that mystery with respect and beauty. Amazingly, it is the rules of art that give us the infinite freedom to create; the powerful operation of light and the patterns through which it reveals form.
