Overview

Hello! My name is Kevin, and I am looking forward to teaching you everything I know about music! I've been singing at Walt Disney World for over 22 years (and I still am currently) with the Voices of Liberty, the Dapper Dans of Main Street, and Four For A Dollar. I have a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Penn State University. Even more than singing, playing the guitar, arranging for a cappella, and playing piano, I love to teach! Ever since I was a sophomore in high school, I've wanted to be a teacher of music in various capacities. My favorite aspect of teaching several private students each week is that every individual student has a different story: What is it that you want to accomplish? Would you like to sing, play piano, or play guitar? Would you like training in music theory? Do you want to eventually have a career in music? Will this be a hobby for you? Whatever your goals are, I am excited to know your story.

Here I'm playing a little blues progression. I can start taking you this during your first lesson.

I look forward to my lessons with Kevin every week. He is a talented teacher who cares to get the very best from his students. Over three months he has helped me with my confidence and widely expanded my knowledge of music and voice. If you are looking for a great music teacher, do yourself the favor of getting to know Kevin.

Kevin gave the perfect lesson. He listened to my needs and my abilities as a student. He tailored instruction; he did not just start teaching me out of a book. If you want to get excited about your instrument of choice, Kevin will help that happen.
