Kevin is a fantastic instructor!

I have been taking private lessons from Kevin for two years now as we'll as receiving instruction in Band for the last three years. Kevin not only is an incredible percussionist himself, but he has a knack for being able to convey ideas to students that they can understand. New and better approaches to teaching rhythm, personalized lesson planning to suit a student's needs, and a vast knowledge of music from years of professional experience are just a few things that Kevin brings to the table. If you're looking for a percussion instructor, I would highly recommend Kevin as your first choice!

David W.

Saint Michael, MN

About David

Howdy! My name is David, and I am an experienced musician and English educator. On the music side, I've been making some kind of noise ever since I got my first guitar at the age of 6. I am well-educated in theory, technique, and applications for all things musical, but my focus is and always has been guitar. I have a lot of live and studio playing experience, and have excellent knowledge of the technical aspects of the instrument, such as amps, pedals, wiring, and more. I love everything about the instrument, and my goal is to help you learn to love it too! The English language has always been my strong suit when it comes to schooling. I've participated in various creative writing contests, tutored peers at the high school and college level, and have been enrolled in advanced courses ...

David is very patient, especially with an active, non focused 7 year old. He has great songs that are catchy for a beginner. He is also very poised with showing what the beginner will be able to do when he practices. We'll be asking for more lessons!
