I have been gigging, both classically and in jazz, in the greater DFW Metroplex for about 9 years. I attended high school close by, and I am the only two-time 6A All-State tenor trombonist in my city's history. I have completed two years at the University of North Texas, and have been teaching for approximately two years. I consistently double between tenor & bass trombone, having a great deal of experience in both instruments, in both classical and jazz settings. Outside of trombone, I also play trumpet/cornet, tuba, vocals, guitar, bass, and piano. I am an avid rock/metal listener, and compose my own music, mainly fusing metal and jazz. Because of this, I feel this makes me an extremely diverse instrumentalist. I have studied with such influential figures as Tony Baker (UNT, Dallas Opera Orchestra), Steve Menard (UNT, Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra), Dennis Bubert (UT Arlington, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra), and more.

About Daniel

Daniel began playing music in 6th grade. His dad is a guitarist/vocalist/flautist (he gigs in the south DFW area) and brought him up in a very musical household. Since then, Daniel has played with groups such as Scott & Steve, Big Gus & Swampadelic, the Pecos River Brass Big Band, and the Fort Wor

So far so good. First meeting jitters are over. Kevin has a nice calm about him which makes it easy to listen. I've got some homework and looking forward to my next lesson.
Melissa
Kevin is wonderful to work with. Very knowledgeable, very calm, pleasant personality. He wanted to know first what I wanted to do, but was prepared to start me with the basics - scales - which is where I want to be proficient, so that I can master the instrument. I have no doubt that I can do that with Kevin. Just spent a few minutes practicing my C-major scale using the L-R-R-L-L method. Works great! I just checked email and he'd sent me the printouts he promised. Looking forward to next week!

I am a composer at heart, and a longtime music theory nerd. I have composed pieces for solo piano, rock bands, electronic music productions, piano trios, and even symphony orchestras. My love of music theory began in my teenage years when I wanted to investigate what it was about certain pieces of music that were so unexpectedly beautiful and emotionally compelling. I now have a solid grasp on the harmonic and formal structures that underlie classical, jazz, pop, and rock music, and this is the knowledge I will pass along to you to help you write music that is compelling and meaningful.

We will take a look at the music that has moved you in the past in order to give you a harmonic vocabulary, and we will also look at some music you haven't heard before as a way of stretching your awareness.

We can also discuss the psychological roadblocks people often run into when they compose, and discuss how the creative process works.

I would love having you as a student, so I hope you'll

"I have only been working with William for about a month now, and he makes learning bagpipes fun and enjoyable. As an instructor, he makes me feel comfortable and seems to have an amazing amount of patience for helping me progress with my ability to understand the instrument from both a musical and technical perspective. He is very responsive to my inquiries and even though the instruction is online, I feel like he is in my living room. I look forward to continued lessons with him as he helps me get better at learning how to play this instrument."
