Lesson Details

Acoustic Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

If you are brand-new to the guitar, I'd love to jump right in and teach you a fun song right away during your first lesson. I like making this as fun as possible while you're learning a lot about the guitar. If you already know how to play, I'd like to help you gain a better understanding of how the guitar applies to basic music theory. I want to help you truly gain your independence as a guitar player. In my opinion, there are only two things that really matter when learning how to play the guitar: 1) Having fun and 2) Learning a lot. That's what I hope that you can attain by learning from me.

Teaching since:
August 2001

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 23 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.

Kevin really took the time to make sure my daughter understood and made the lesson fun. She was already excited about learning but she was nervous. After just her 1st lesson she is so excited and has confidence in herself that she didn't really have earlier. She can't wait to practice and so him her improvement by the next lesson.

Over three months he has helped me with my confidence and widely expanded my knowledge of music and voice.

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.

Kevin has been a great teacher for our 11 year old daughter, Sophia. He has inspired her to learn and improve her vocal skills and she is now starting to learn some piano as well. He offers not just singing to her but a rounded understanding of her musical skills. After two months of weekly sessions, she is always excited to go to the class and to continue to practice at home, vocally and on the piano. Thanks Kevin!

Kevin is an amazing guitar instructor. As a 20 year elementary teacher, I see great teacher qualities in Kevin. He is not just teaching guitar skills, he is teaching learning strategies as well. He was honest on the type of guitar needed for my daughter to play with more success and is always enthusiastic and full of constructive suggestions. My daughter's eyes sparkle during her 30 minutes with Kevin. I also love the emails he sends to explain her lessons and what she is to practice at home.

My 8 year old daughter has been taking piano and voice from Kevin for the past year. He is so patient with her and does such a great job of helping her understand what she is learning. She started with voice and showed such an interest in piano that he added that to her lessons. She has picked it up very quickly and looks forward to her lessons with Kevin. I would highly recommend him!

My daughter,Kloe,has been taking lessons from Kevin since last year. She has never had any lessons before and was a beginner. Kevin has a passion for music and his students and it shows in his teaching. He is patient and lets the student learn at their own pace. He provides them with instruction on what to work on for the next lesson and any tools that may help with the student's progress. Kevin involves the parents on their child's achievements and sends weekly updates to the parents so they know what their child needs to focus on. I highly recommend Kevin !!!
