Our "Tell Us Your Story" Winner

Meet our “Tell Us Your Story” winner–Brandon Fine

Brandon has been playing piano since he was six years old. He has studied piano under the guidance of Heidi Roberts and Dr. Waldon Hughes. Over the years, Brandon has received thirteen consecutive superior ratings for his piano performances at the Caldwell Fine Arts Music Festival. After high school, he went on to win a music scholarship from NNU.

These are fantastic accomplishments for any musician, but Brandon has achieved all this with a severe hearing impairment. Hearing aids allow him to hear certain tones; however, the upper register is almost inaudible. Brandon overcomes this by practicing these parts an octave lower until he feels comfortable, and then he performs them as written.

Today Brandon is married to his beautiful wife, Lorali, and they are expecting their first child in February. Playing piano continues to be a passion, and he actively uses his musical gifts at his church. Unfortunately, Brandon currently has a broken-down piano that nearly makes practicing impossible. The Dunkley team is extremely excited to give him a piano that will go the distance and contribute to his growth as a musician.

The best part about this story is that Brandon had no idea that his family and friends had entered him into the "Dunkley Music Piano Giveaway Contest." When we called to inform him that he was the winner, he thought, "it must be a prank." After we hung up, he drove straight to his mother’s house and asked her if she had "done something.” She confirmed that she and others had indeed "done something" and that they had submitted his story. Brandon couldn't believe it; he really did win a piano!

We believe that Brandon is more than our contest winner; he is an inspiration!

Merry Christmas, Brandon–it is an honor to contribute to your future musical endeavors.
