Brent Ekstrom

Strings and Brass instructor

Mankato School of Music

Brent is from Bemidji, Minnesota and is a third-year instrumental music Ed major at MSU Mankato. He started playing cello in fifth grade and trumpet in sixth and his passion for music has only grown since then. Though those are his two primary instruments, he is capable of teaching all beginner strings and brass. He taught lessons at Headwaters Music and Arts since 2018 for trumpet, cello, and piano. He is in a plethora of bands at MSU, and is versed in a wide range of musical styles. In his free time he likes to read, play video games, fish, workout, and play with his cat, Ani. He is very excited to connect with the Mankato School of Music students and witness their ‘ah-ha’ moments.
