About Kevin S.

I have always loved Guitar. As a child I started playing Air Guitar and quickly graduated to a tennis racquet in front of the mirror. I knew the day I received my first guitar that I would play guitar for the rest of my life. Now I owe so much to all of my teachers for all the knowledge, guidance, and support. Now I am dedicated to helping as many guitarist reach their goals and play to their full potential.

Professionalism and light-heartedness at its finest.

What's there to say about Kevin?

Since the minute I walked into his office I knew that he was a music enthusiast. He doesn't play for attention, he plays for the music and he certainly knows what hes doing.

When it comes to him teaching, hes a very relaxed and "let-you-learn-at-your-pace" kind of style. From my own experience in the few times I've visited I've already learned so much about what I want to do, and things that I didn't even know I could do!

As a professional, he had many instructions, lesson plans, and ideas on how I could improve or learn already prepared before hand before, and as a teacher he took a very steady approach with patience. He has wonderful interaction with me, never stuttered nor did he ignore my questions; even those not necessarily pertaining to guitar lessons.

He managed to give me the tools I need, and hopefully when I master them, he'll teach me how to use them properly.

So what's there to say about Kevin?

Alot.
