Kevin S.

Salt Lake City, UT

Instruction in piano covers many areas of playing the instrument. Students can expect to learn about the history and construction of the instrument, as well as explore multiple genres and playing styles, including rock, pop, jazz, blues, gospel/hymn, and classical. Lessons will include learning scales and chords, rhythm and accompaniment styles, as well as developing an ability to improvise. Since the piano is such a ubiquitous instrument to all musical genres and styles, a specific learning focus will be dictated by the student, to which I will tailor lesson materials.

About Kevin

Kevin began studying music at the age of 4, beginning with the piano. Since then, he has learned to play multiple instruments, including bass, guitar, ukulele, and mandolin, and has cultivated a deep understanding of music theory and music history. Kevin began teaching private lessons in 2011 while studying music at the University of Utah. He graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance in December 2014 and currently maintains a diverse studio of students, teaching multiple instruments to students of all ages and skill levels.

Kevin’s teaching style focuses primarily on broad mus
ical concepts. Students are as diverse as music itself, each with their own interests, goals, and capabilities. Kevin works with each student to determine what they are most interested in learning, and then tailors lesson plans that meet those individual expectations, while also introducing and strengthening fundamental musical concepts. All students, regardless of instrument and personal interest, can expect to learn how to read different types of musical notation, how to play a broad selection of chords and scales, how to read and feel rhythm, and many other important and exciting musical concepts.

Kevin currently offers 30, 45, and 60 minute lessons at a location of the student’s choosing. He also offers 30, 45, and 60 minute online lessons in two different formats: 1) entirety of lesson in realtime; 2) Half the duration as realtime lesson, half as recorded video lesson.

Kevin regularly performs in Salt Lake City and Park City with The Hot Club of Zion, Electric Cathedral, and Charles Ellsworth. He also spends time as a studio musician and producer.

Bass Guitar · In studio
I have been taking bass guitar lessons from Kevin for over six months now. He was able to teach me the fundamentals of music in a way that allowed me to progress with an understanding of how music works and how it works specifically in playing the bass. I have reached the point where I can start applying that understanding to the playing of songs in context. It makes a huge difference. Highly recommended.

Kevin has been teaching guitar to my son for 1 year. He has really helped my son develop a love for listening to and playing guitar. Kevin is very professional and knowledgable about music, and he is able to communicate and teach well to a 9 year old.
We are thrilled that we have Kevin as our son's music mentor, and look forward to watching him develop as a musician under Kevin's guidance.

Katie D.

Spanish Fork, UT

If you take lessons with me, you can expect progression! This takes top priority in my mind. It is very important for my students to know that I encourage keeping track of their progress on their chosen instruments. Setting goals and reaching them can be very satisfying! I recognize that every student has different skill levels and I will teach to the style that they best adapt to. One final note to add, they will be loved!

About Katie

At just 6 months old my mom discovered me humming “Silent Night”. By age 2, I would sit in the bathroom, holding aloft a Reader’s Digest from which I would “read” aloud, belting gibberish at the top of my lungs. Needless to say, my mother quickly enrolled me in the children’s performing group “Sunshine Generation”, since then its been 23 years of singing, dancing, acting, playing piano, playing guitar and playing the ukulele non-stop.

I love music and I love teaching! I have been studying the subject for decades now, two and half to be exact. First, in private lessons with wonderful teache
rs, then in Junior High, and High School. Then I entered the realms of college at Citrus, Riverside City College and my current educating grounds, Brigham Young University(Commercial Music Major). I am a music composer. I write music, lyrics, and score to Film/TV/promotional videos. I am currently on iTunes. I am loving and caring about the students I teach. I've had experience in teaching individual lessons to over 100+ students, singing with touring jazz orchestras, pop/rock groups and directing choirs.

Music is a lifestyle, and it is the lifestyle I love to live. If you want to learn your music skills, let me teach you! Im super fun and I will help you get to the next level! Thanks for reading this, I appreciate it. Don't you feel like you know me a little bit better?

Karine R.

The most important Part of my teaching - "Hand Positioning and Proper Touch".

Specific instructional method of hand positioning based on muscle structures, physiology of playing (how the arms and body function). Strength of my method - ability to prevent tension, awareness of weight technique and tone production. Students advance quickly and enjoy playing classical masterpieces

Richard W.

Provo, UT

I played piano for Brigham Young University's Dance Department for 7 years - sight reading or playing without any music for Ballet and Modern Dance classes. I think sight reading is one of the best piano skills to have because you can play whatever you want in a fraction of the time. So my goal is to get students there. Most people aren't looking to become concert pianists, and my goal isn't that. It's to help them play well enough to really enjoy it and be very satisfied with their progress.

About Richard

My goal is to help students ENJOY the piano by finding ways to make it easier and doable. I have a very useful approach in helping students become self sufficient to sight read very well, to see patterns, understand music theory to either help them play well, or to even create their own music(I compose a lot of great music as well) I couldn't sight read very well until I was 16, but I had a great sight reading teacher that showed me how to develop it, and now I can say that I'm one of the best sight readers out there that I know. I would love to help you learn the piano, and I will do my be
st to make learning as effective as possible. I especially enjoy teaching those who quit and would like to try again, because I know what that is like.
