Glades County music teacher records video singing for students

A high school music teacher is letting his students know he misses them while we’re all stuck at home by recreating an old favorite.

We asked him why this video was important for him to make.


Meet Bryan Browning—singing all four parts of the Billy Joel classic.

When he created the video, he hoped to inspire his Moore Haven High School students stuck at home.

“It was supposed to be just something fun to share with the kids and just seeing how you’re doing a great job keep up the good work,” he said. “I just thought I’d share it on Facebook, which is something that I never really do, but I guess people seem to like it.”

Browning admits he got the idea from a friend, so he decided to follow suit.

“I’m just trying to do something fun and silly. I don’t really want it to be about me,” he said.

“He’s about the students,” said one of Browning’s former students, Darien Cook. “Everything he does is for his students.”

A student at UNC Charlotte now, Cook walked into drumline junior year and got to know Mr. Browning.

“He was always very hard on us on practicing and making sure we knew our music, but he always put us first,” she said.

Another great example of our community coming together.

Browning is also a worship leader at his church, First United Methodist Church of Moore Haven. He says they also create music videos for his church as well, but he’s never thought about sharing those.
