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 true professional musician. In only a few sessions, I have been able to get a better understanding of music theory and how songs are formed. I am thankful to have access to his years of experience and talent. I get better and better every week!

Kenneth R. is excellent! Each lesson was a wonderful experience that we anticipated each week. Not only is he a musician extraordinaire, he is kind, supportive and professional. I and my lead pastor decided to improve our singing ability so we could lead our own worship service. Kenny worked with us. Each lesson we walked away more skilled than the lesson before. He prepared us to sing together. My confidence and ability are definitely improved after five lessons. Due to my experience with Kenneth, I am considering producing a cd of old time gospel songs to give to my 81 year old dad. EIK Ministries highly recommends Kenneth R. and KR Music Studio. You will also receive a hearty welcome/greetings from his awesome team member and office manager, Mrs. Wendy R. Schedule your appointment today! You will not regret the experience.

Kenneth is a great instructor. I can't wait to get there each Tuesday. My voice is stronger because of exercises that have been applied and my confidence has greatly increased. Kenneth is kind and firm teacher. More importantly, He is an extremely gifted musician. His ability to transfer knowledge is "off the chart!" I am glad I picked him from the list. He is outstanding and has a nice, professional location/studio as well.

Kenneth and his wife Wendy are amazing! Everything about my first session was professional and personal. I recommend Kenneth to anyone seeking a great vocal trainer with lots of experience.

Consistently Amazing

As a student/client of over 15 years, I have experienced the instructor to always be exceptional. He listens to his clients/students and works to ensure that their needs are being met and that they are satisfied with the services they receive.
Distance isn't a barrier and never has been one! Kenneth has been able to accommodate my recording and instructional needs while I've traveled all over the country! Having a dependable instructor/service provider has been the key to our long standing business relationship and I would recommend Kenneth to anyone needing the awesome services his company provides.

Professor Kenneth Robinson is an excellent piano instructor.

In the course of one year, he has taught my wife and I introduction to the piano keyboard, musicianship, the primary harmonies ( I - IV - V)(Triad-3 Note Chords), C major chords and F major chords. Then we progressed to relative and poly chords. Professor Robinson taught us how to play a variety of church praise songs utilizing these skills and techniques. Thanks to his phenomenal teaching skills we are now the Church Musicians of our local lay ministry. We are honored to have been trained under his musical mentorship. We highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about music lessons.

PHENOMENAL!!!

Kenny's approach to the piano is warm, precise, and professional. My son is learning, having fun and loving to play the piano. We have had lessons elsewhere and it was boring and dry but with Kenny my son is excited to go to every lesson. His studio is professional non-intimidating and inviting. We would not dream of going anywhere else for music instructions. PERIOD!
Although we are taking off for the summer we will be back first of the school year.

Excellent Instructor

I have had two piano lessons and I look forward to my next lessons with Kenneth. Kenneth is engaging, professional, knowledgeable and passionate about teaching. I appreciate Kenneth creating a curriculum based upon my musical interest. I have taken lessons before but I have never had an instructor ask me what musical interest I had. Kudos to Kenneth. I think I made the right choice and would recommend Kenneth to others.

I am very pleased with Kenneth and highly recommend him as a piano teacher.

Kenneth is very patient and supportive with my six year old grandson. During the first lesson before any instruction began, Kenneth assessed my grandson's skill level and ability to focus. Lessons begin promptly and end on time. Kenneth was very helpful in finding a reasonably priced keyboard so that my grandson can practice. My grandson enjoys lessons with Kenneth and thinks his studio is a "cool" place.
Kenneth uses non-traditional and more interesting methods of teaching piano which appeal to children. He encourages my grandson to practice his lessons and afterwards, spend time experimenting on the keyboard.
Kenneth and Wendy are very professional and personable.

Vocal Lessons

My daughter has improved since taking vocal lessons with Mr. Kenneth. He's very well knowledge and each lessons she was learning something new.

Head and shoulders above anyone and anything we'd hoped when chosing Ken. His knowledge and experience and understanding the full gammet of the industry are evidenced in his pesonal, personable approach and keen sense. No doubt he knows the business and understands the industry. Very insightful and provides many nuggets of information that teaches the student more than just singing, but music iteself...a great find for anyone interested and will gain more than they bargain for. I can't express enough how pleased my daughter and I are that we happened upon him, rather than someone else.
