Kelvin is a very patient teacher! I knew absolutely nothing about mandolin or music and Kelvin has helped with that. I have a long way to go but, with Kelvins help I believe I can get there!
I highly recommend Kelvin!!!!!

When we were looking for a piano teacher for our 13yo daughter we were looking for someone who could also help her out with her church music as she is the "organist" during school masses. Kelvin was more than willing to do so. She has learned more in four lessons with Kelvin than she did in more than two years with a another teacher. Kelvin is very patient and makes each lesson fun. At the same time he is demanding without being strict. We are all very pleased with Kelvin's method of teaching. We highly recommend him.

Wonderful, patient, good demo of technique. I was nervous that taking a class on calligraphy online wouldn't work well. It does, Monika is very good, I felt like she was right beside me the entire time

It was great! After a bit of tech problems on both sides we had a good session. Monika's first lesson was fun and a good choice for me. I look forward to our next lesson.
