I am a professional music teacher with 30+ years experience. Very experienced at teaching all band instruments. Expert at Saxophones - Clarinet. I am Nationally Board Certified as a Band Teacher. I can teach a student what they need from specific solos to audition materials to Jazz Improvisation. I currently perform throughout the area. I am experienced at teaching students of ALL ages what they want to learn about the saxophone and clarinet. I can play and demonstrate for you as a musician. I own and play Soprano, Alto and Tenor Sax. Bari as well but do not own one. I also play clarinet and flute. I am a good young piano teacher.

I have successfully taught many students to success at district and honors band level auditions, as well as prep for Governor's School and College Auditions.

Kevin is a great teacher for my little beginner.

Excellent instructor, very relaxed atmosphere and provided a lot of good information. Especially liked that fact that he took the time to cover what was needed rather than strict adherence to the clock. Highly recommend his as a music instructor.

Kevin is very well versed in musical instruments. We took an older clarinet to him and he identified what type it was and was able to play it and teach how to play it. Looking forward to more lessons.

Mr. Kevin D. has helped me immensely. From the first lesson I have learned a lot about correct setup and the audition process. It's clear that Mr. Kevin D. has a large well of knowledge and is very capable of teaching it. Not only does he teach, but also provides any materials for furthering the education.
