I am a musician/teacher with almost 30 years of professional experience. I have successfully taught students as young as 3 and as old as 89. Some of my students are exceptionally gifted and excel in competitions and music exams. Some have few natural gifts, bringing to lessons little more than a basic interest. Most are somewhere in between. Supremely gifted or not, I don't care. My motto is "Growing the Seeds of a Musical Life." If I can plant those seeds and help them grow, I find joy and satisfaction in my work.
This actually includes a wide variety of jobs. Some of them are Houston Ballet Academy, Houston Grand Opera Opera-to-Go outreach program, many private recitals and UIL competitions, various competitions for high school & college student soloists, and various jazz piano gigs in and around Houston as soloist, accompanist and side-man.+ Read More
A wide variety of students to whom I have taught primarily piano, but also theory, composition and improvisation.
Accompany the choir in rehearsal and performance, accompany students and faculty in recitals, accompany rehearsals for musicals and play keyboard in the orchestra, and on occasion create music for musicals and/or serve as music director and conductor for musicals.+ Read More
Our primary function is to establish definite goals and awards--in noncompetitive auditions--for students of all levels, from the earliest beginner to the gifted prodigy.
The mission of the Texas Music Teachers Association (TMTA), an affiliate of Music Teachers National Association, is to advance the value of music study and music making in society and to support the professionalism of music teachers.
TMTA is a nonprofit educational organization. Founded in 1886, it is dedicated to the promotion of high quality individual and group music instruction. Its membership includes over two thousand teachers in sixty-five local organizations. All activities of the association are educational and promote the art of music.
The MTNA was founded in 1876 with the goal of advancing the value of music study and music-making to society while supporting the careers and professionalism of teachers of music. With nearly 22,000 members in 50 states—and more than 500 local affiliates—the MTNA is the preeminent source for music teacher support, where members embody like-minded values and commitment to their students, colleagues and society as a whole, while reaping the rewards of collaboration, continuity and connection throughout the lifetime of their careers.+ Read More
I’m an adult student who has been taking lessons for over 5 years. He has helped me grow by leaps and bounds. He is exceptionally good at breaking things down and engaging you through well thought out illustrations that are common in every day life. He is encouraging and patient. He is knowledgeable not just about piano music but music history and all things music and is able to relate much of this in a lesson that is very beneficial.
I was a returning student when I started with him as I had years of lessons before, but he took me where I was at and was able to move me along past my hurdles. I am so grateful that I found him as a teacher. I look forward to more growth.
Kevin is a great music teacher. He is really patience during lessons and he spends time to work at the individual student’s pace. If he recognizes the student’s talents, he will talk to parents and encourage student to advance to the level that student can achieve. My son has been having lessons with Kevin for almost two years. Within one year, my son learned and progressed so much.+ Read More
I'm very grateful for having Kevin as the first piano teacher to introduce the delight of playing music to my son at his early age. He is very patient. My son enjoys the time with him and said he wants to be a piano teacher when he grows up.
Thank you, Kevin.
