Quick view profile

Experienced teacher of 20+ years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate piano and voice student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be singing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started!

For beginners, I highly recommend starting with a 30-minute lesson. Intermediate and advanced should consider 45-minute lessons. 60-min lessons are available but are only recommended on a case-by-case basis. Please take into consideration your student's current skill level when deciding on the lesson length.

I use vocalizes to teach change in the voice and also different types of music to attain a better sound. I try to make it as physical as possible since so much of the effort depends on the brain. I want to help each student achieve their goal. Together we can get to that sound which is uniquely you.

I have always been in love with guitar before I even knew how to hold it. If you have love for guitar same as I did, my number one goal is to make you a better guitar player on your guitar journey.

About Kenson

I started playing the guitar since I was 9-10 years old with my brothers, and since then I never stopped playing it. Music took me a lot of places and I met some interesting people along the way. Get ready to learn your new instrument and turn it into your passion.

My philosophy on teaching revolves around the idea that on the foundation of instrumental technique and functional ear training, all other facets of music are made easier.
Developing instrumental technique teaches the student how to assess and target their weaknesses. This is necessary to make the process efficient. I work with students to create a plan so that they can develop quickly while practicing a reasonable amount. I know their lives are busy enough.
Functional ear training is a skill that not only makes playing music easier, but it also makes listening to music more enjoyable! This is a skill the student keeps for the rest of their lives, regardless of whether or not they continue to play their instrument as an adult.
For jazz music specifically, if the student wants to go down that road, I find it imperative to make sure the history of the music goes hand in hand with the craft of the music. The study of history gives greater context to the music we listen to, which ...

"My 6 years old daughter had a wonderful experience with Amy in Boston, MA. In general she has issues focusing on tasks, but Amy was always able to keep her attention and motivate her to do her best. Amy is very personable, professional and most of all patient, a very important skill to have when dealing with young students. She assigns homework and rewards students for it, helping them to practice with consistency and take pride of their accomplishments. I highly recommend Amy if you are in Columbus area and looking for a positive and enjoyable learning experience."

Robert impressed me immediately with his knowledge and proficiency on the guitar, bass, ukulele and piano, and his patience and understanding about how to teach music. Some music teachers are incredible musicians but not good teachers, but Robert is great at both.

I highly recommend Robert to anyone looking for a music teacher for any instrument, any age, any genre."
