Today was my first lesson and I was very apprehensive of my ability as well as the whole lesson experience. (because of my age) Kenneth, made me feel very comfortable and he made me feel that my voice could get even better with the techniques that he will teach me. I feel very positive about going forward with my lessons.

Kenneth is an outstanding and phenomenal music teacher. I am a better singer and more confident since lessons at his beautiful studio. Kenneth makes it a practice to give you a recording of the lesson. I was sharing my cd with my father and asked him to guess who was singing. And he said...Mahalia Jackson. Wow! I really had improved my vocals and all because of my music teacher. I am also considering having Kenneth help me produce a CD. Kenneth is the best! You will love him and his beautiful Office Manager and wife, Wendy.

Kenneth is a very helpful and patient teacher. He taught my 7 yr old daughter piano and we always felt welcomed and loved the recitals they setup for their students.
