Hi there! I've been playing music for 17 years and teaching for 7 years now! I’ve taught students from 8 years old all the way to 70. I love watching my students grow, as a musician and a person. I’ve been given so many opportunities through music. I’ve traveled with drum corps for 3 months at a time, traveling across the United States and performing in Pro Football stadiums. I’ve traveled to China with a professional orchestra and got to see the whole country. I’ve played more shows that I can count and met so many amazing people. All thanks to the incredible opportunities given to me through music. I want you to have your own experiences with music and I would like to help you get there. Whether it's drums, percussion, piano, guitar, or anything else, I want to teach you. I start with strong fundamentals to help you understand not just your instrument, but all of music. This way, you can play any instrument with a bit of practice. I am here for you, whether you want to learn music as a fun hobby or make it your life. I am here to help you in your journey with music and help guide you to your goals.

Kevin is an outstanding percussion instructor! He delivers the delicate balance of patience and high expectations and as a bonus, knows multiple instruments. He’s helped my 11 year old son improve his technique, his listening, his rhythm, and his sight reading on percussion bells. The lessons over Zoom work exceptionally well and it’s one less place I have to take him too. It’s also great that the bell set is portable, as are the lessons, so even when traveling we’ve been able to continue our practicing and our lessons. It can be difficult to find an effective percussion teacher, but look no further if you’ve stumbled on this page.
He is very knowledgeable and you can tell he works with kids. My daughter looks forward to lessons and can see big improvement each week. He is always asking about her current music goals and upcoming auditions. One of her goals was to make jazz band and she did, playing the trap set on a song at the winter concert.
Kevin is all you want in an instructor. He is enthusiastic about music and about me learning and getting better. He knows his stuff and knows how to break it down, so I can understand it. And he keeps the vibe nice and fun.
