Your travel partner.
David’s years of experience as a band director continue to inspire the work he does today as a Travel Consultant with BRT. For six years, he worked with middle and high school students, directing concert, marching, jazz, percussion and pep bands, as well as pit orchestra and adult ensembles, so he knows what music educators need when it comes to inspiring and leading their students. David loves that his work with BRT keeps him closely connected to the music education community and allows him to serve directors while continuing to positively impact students.
My favorite travel memory
My favorite travel memory has to be when I took my high school band students on our trip down to Orlando. Performing with them at Disney World and getting to build stronger relationships with them outside of the classroom in a different educational environment was a more gratifying and valuable experience than I had ever anticipated.
My hobbies and pastimes
Outside of travel, music and fitness are two of my biggest passions. I’m a percussionist and pianist, and love to perform. Attending concerts in the city or at local parks, like Ravinia, is always fun. I also enjoy doing just about anything that keeps me outside and staying active.
My favorite travel destination
Do I have to pick just one?! I love exploring new destinations and take every opportunity I can to do so. However, I tend to enjoy tropical destinations with beautiful beaches and palm trees! Costa Rica and Hawaii are recent favorites.
David has been very knowledgeable and extremely helpful and patient with us throughout the process. We traveled with you guys last year and he organized everything and our kids had a wonderful experience.
Belvidere Central Middle School
The staff that helped us was great and knowledgeable. Melissa and David were always available through direct texts if needed and very prompt to respond. I felt very much at ease and prepared for our trip!!
Bullard Middle School
I know that David and Susan are working with lots of other groups and directors at all times, but it always seemed as if I was their only client, due to the quick replies to emails and phone calls. I will ONLY USE BRT when traveling, period!
Lake Park High School
David Brachmann made this stressful process LESS stressful, even though we demanded a LOT from him the entire 7-month planning process. David was incredibly accommodating…(he) also was welcoming in person, which is always great!
Mount Vernon Township High School
David was great with us. He attended our meetings and always answered our questions very quickly.
