Music is an extremely multifaceted skill and every student learns in a completely different way. Some students will gravitate towards certain aspects of music more then others. For me, it is all about favoring these aspects in order for the student to get the most creative and intellectual growth. I am a well-versed professional musician and have experience in many genres from classical to more popular styles. I teach strong foundations in note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, improvisation and more. My lessons are always encouraging no matter what level or pace the student is at. Send me a message, I look forward to working with you!

About Kevin
I am a private woodwind instructor and professional freelance musician. My main instrument is saxophone and I double on flute, teaching both with the addition of beginner to intermediate clarinet. I have a Masters in Jazz Studies from Manhattan School of Music and BA in Classical and Jazz Performance from Michigan State University. I am experienced in many different genres of music and have performed and recorded with many jazz, latin, funk, soul, fusion, R&B, pop, and classical ensembles.
For me teaching is extremely rewarding, the fact that I get to share and guide students through this creative art form that is so dear to me is really a special thing. Music has many aspects and certain students gravitate towards different aspects then others. I focus on these specific aspects so my students get the most creative and intellect
ual growth.

Kevin has been my teacher for 3 years. We meet once a week. Kevin is a gifted teacher (and a great musician). He only corrects a mistake once I've reached the level when I can fix it. This way I have been making progress week after week, and it feels good.

Kevin is a wonderful teacher. My daughter started saxophone lessons with him at the beginning of the summer and she adores him. He's funny, patient, encouraging and thoughtful. We couldn't ask for a better sax teacher! Kevin also taught a master class at my older son's middle school and he was fantastic. I highly recommend him!

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!
