Brian Ellerman was born and raised in West Chester, OH. He began his musical journey at the age of 10. His private teacher instilled in him the necessity to be a well-rounded and versatile musician. In doing so, Brian began to explore the world of percussion instruments and became well versed in both classical percussion and drum set.
In 2011, he attended The Ohio State University in the hopes of obtaining a double major in both Jazz and Classical Percussion Performance. He studied under Susan Powell and Jim Rupp and was exposed to an even broader spectrum of musical styles and performance environments. During his time at Ohio State, he performed in world-class DCI and WGI ensembles playing marimba. He later decided to narrow his focus to a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Studies and studied solely under Jim Rupp and graduated from Ohio State in 2016.
Brian works independently as both a performer and educator in Columbus, OH in a variety of musical genres including, jazz, pop, folk/rock, and musical theater. He has also toured iextensively with The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, performing over 190 shows over the span of a 40-week tour covering the United States, Canada, and Japan. His work in these various genres as well as his experience in the marching arts and classical percussion have allowed him to develop a focus on quality of sound and attention to detail that he applies to all aspects of his musical career.
