Brennen Gallant is 16 years old from New Glasgow and presently in grade 11 at École François-Buote. As a former student from École St-Augustin, he started playing the ukulele through their music program. As his interest grew, he decided he wanted to try the guitar. He raised money by selling campfire wood to buy his first electric guitar & has been playing for five years now. Through watching and listening to videos online, he taught himself how to play.
Although he still enjoys playing his electric guitars, he has found an immense pleasure in playing the acoustic, and learning different techniques such as fingerstyle picking.
Brennen won first place at the Dundas PEI Youth Talent competition, and then took first place at the provincial level. This past fall, he tied for first in the Red Nose talent show. Music is definitely a big part of Brennen’s life now and in the future.
