Brian Baggett

Brian Baggett's education includes both Washburn University and University of Kansas with concentration in jazz improvisation and guitar. He has studied with some of the best in the field, including extensive private lessons with Danny Embrey, Rod Fleeman and Regi Wooten, among others. His critically acclaimed guitar playing has been praised by Mike Varney in Guitar Player magazine and by many other jazz and guitar based publications.

Brian’s guitar instruction spans many areas. He is a private guitar instructor, faculty for the University of Kansas Jazz Workshop, guitar instructor at Ottawa University, and most recently Brian took on a new role in early childhood music, working with students at the Lawrence Montessori School.
