So you want to develop your musical ear through training! Great! I'd love to help you!

I've been singing professionally at Walt Disney World for over 22 years (and still singing there). It is (and has been) a dream job. I sing with The Voices of Liberty at Epcot and The Dapper Dans of Main Street at The Magic Kingdom.

Also, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from Penn State with an emphasis in Voice.

I want to help your musical ear become strong and independent. You'll learn how to sight-read (sight-sing) with ease. Let's get started!

About Kevin M.

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.

I would like to start out saying I’m a 66 year old beginner acoustic guitar player. Kevin was very good in assuring me that the guitar isn’t that difficult to learn and proved it in my first lesson. He makes you feel at ease and throughly explains the lesson.

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.

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.

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!

My daughter loves taking piano lessons with Mr. Kevin. He is extremely talented and knowledgeable and teaches in a way that is effective and fun. His excitement for music, use of technology, and ability to assess my daughter’s needs from lesson to lesson keeps her practicing and I appreciate his excellent communication about what and how she is doing. I would definitely recommend Mr. 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 !!!
