I am a classical guitarist originally but I also play acoustic, electric, fingerstyle, blues, bluegrass, country, and rock, and I am a master of music theory. I have been teaching for over 20 years and playing and performing for 25 years. My specialty is fingerstyle and I can teach from beginner to the highest advanced levels. I teach at a major University and have been an assistant professor of guitar at several colleges. I currently play and perform in a band that plays all kinds of music from Folk to Funk, from Country to Blues, from Bluegrass to Ballads. I am a music theory specialist. I can teach it in general but I specialize in teaching theory for guitarists. Teaching music is one of my main passions in life!

Kevin is an excellent instructor. He supports your desires for playing with great understanding of what you need to improve to achieve your goals. He is also very personable and easy to work with. His experience gives him the ability to understand what is difficult and how to master those situations.

I have been taking banjo lessons from Kevin for a couple of years. Kevin is a wonderfully talented instructor and a great musician himself! He shapes my lessons around practical use in performance, always encouraging and ever-challenging, but with plenty of patience and just plain fun. Trust me, you will not find a better teacher!

Kevin Fleming is an excellent teacher. He is a world-class guitarist, who relates well to his students, including a novice like me. With his help, I progressed from a middle-aged beginner to a modestly competent guitarist who can play and sing along by memory to over 30 songs from my youth.

Kevin is a great teacher -- very knowledgeable and patient with a broad repertoire of guitar styles, from classical to blues to metal. You name it, he can play it (and teach it!). He has a great sense of humor as well.
