Student Employee of The Month – January 2018

We would like to introduce you to Brandon Thibault, our Employee of The Month for January 2018!

 Brandon returns to The Tutoring Center for the Winter 2018 semester as both a Supplemental Instruction Leader for MUS 1214/1215 as well as a Peer Tutor for a variety of music classes!

 Currently in his third year at Oakland University, Brandon plans to graduate in the Winter semester of 2019 with a Bachelor’s Degree of Music in Instrumental Performance.

 Aside from working in The Tutoring Center, Brandon is involved in a variety of other clubs and orgs on campus, including serving as the Fraternity Warden for Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity and being a member of the Golden Grizzles Band. He regularly attends Men’s and Women’s home basketball games, as well as most band and orchestra concerts at Varner Hall.

 Brandon is also currently the Principal Tubist of Oakland Symphony Orchestra, Oakland University Brass Band, Oakland University Wind Symphony, and the Oakland University Symphonic Band. He serves as the Principal Librarian of Wind Bands at Oakland University and is involved in a tuba quartet named, “Tubas Ignis” with fellow colleagues at Oakland University, an ensemble for which multiple works have been commissioned.  The quartet was the second-place winner in the North American Brass Band Association’s Brass Ensemble Competition for the past two years. 

 Outside of campus, Brandon continues his passion of music, as he current plays with the Dodworth Saxhorn Band, America's Premier 19th Century Brass Band.  This ensemble plays at multiple events for Greenfield Village in Dearborn. He also enjoys assisting in the teaching of local high school marching bands.

 Upon graduation, Brandon plans to pursue a Master’s Degree in Music Performance and then audition for a professional orchestra.

 Be sure to schedule a tutoring appointment with Brandon online or check out Brandon’s SI sessions if you’re enrolled in MUS 1214/1215!
