Overview

I truly enjoy teaching. I've taught in the public school classroom for 11 years. Teaching music is so so much FUN! And it should be fun for the students to learn. When I'm teaching I tell all my students that if they don't enjoy and smile about something, then we need to change something.

I would love to start lessons with you soon.

This was the first lesson. I'm starting from scratch with learning all about the guitar. Most of the lesson was spent with Kevin trying to show me how to tune my new guitar. Then there was a glitch with my trying to download the guitartuna app he recommended, so that didn't work. Little disappointed. By lesson #2, my guitar should be fine-tuned. Kevin provided practice lessons. I look forward to practice practice practice. Kevin was patient, very knowledgeable, and seems like a great instructor to learn from. I look forward to the next lesson.

Kevin is a great instructor. Really enjoying my lessons. If doing them over skype, I would recommend using a hardwired connection and not wifi. Laggy skype connection on my end is the only problem. Kevin's connection is fine.

After many different guitar teachers and disappointing results, I nearly put my guitar away for good. Fortunately, I decided to give it one more try by signing up with Kevin. He helped me make the most of what I had already learned before moving on to new techniques. Now I can play many of my favorite songs. I'm more confident and happier than ever with my playing. I'm even playing for other people, and I've even written a song, two things I never imagined myself doing. Kevin is patient, tactful and supportive. He never makes me feel stupid or incompetent. He is an excellent teacher. As a former teacher myself, I recommend him without reservation.

Really appreciate the level of professionalism and skill Kevin brings to lessons for my daughter who is 11. She is challenged to learn and enjoys the lessons. Kevin provides a worksheet of things to work on over the week so my daughter always knows what to do during her practice sessions. We have mostly done private 45 minute lessons, but Kevin has the flexibility to offer semi-private lessons as well, and my daughter has also enjoyed taking lessons with a friend!

Kevin is AWESOME! Our little boy, Elijah (8 years old) loves spending time with Kevin, always leaving motivated to practice and play more music. We have loved the way Kevin teaches a theory during each class and also focuses on playing current pop music...it really keeps our little boy's short attention span engaged! My wife and I definitely recommend Kevin!
