Keith is an incredibly gifted musician and one of the nicest people you're likely to meet. As his former bass instructor I've known him for decades and have seen him consistently grow as an artist. Anyone would reap benefits by being under his tutelage.+ Read More
Not only reasonably priced lessons but you also get top class experience. Keith can translate complex theory and technique into simple English, very easy to understand, good at explaining. If you need to learn how to sing well but can't afford university classes, Keith Gray is a very good alternative. He also knows piano and guitar.+ Read More
Keith has been teaching singing lessons at my school Capital Innovations Academy for the past school year. He is kind, patient, and clearly talented. He understands how to talk to teens and how to impart his knowledge in a non-threatening, easy to comprehend manner. I highly recommend him!

I met Keith at a job we had together once, he was a really laid back normal dude & we got along pretty well. A little later on I found he played music & gave lessons so I asked him for some. He was really helpful & nice, & now my songwriting abilities have gotten so much better because of him. Thank you Keith!+ Read More
I watched Keith perform about 7-8 songs in midtown Sacramento about 3 weeks ago. His love of music translates to his unique sound. He was respectful of the venue and unlike other artists, he humbly engages he crowd. Keith invites everyone into his musical journey. He is a delight to watch in person. I would recommend him to anyone looking to pick up a musical skill, especially piano!+ Read More
