    Connect The Dots Music

    Westlake Village, CA · Kevin Callister

    I teach music because after taking lessons for years, I still hadn’t been taught how to just sit down and play something from the radio, play different styles, or write my own songs.  All I could do was read music, which limited me to classical and theater music.  This is the situation most students of traditional lessons find themselves in.  How unfulfilling for all that time and money; there is so much more!  I discovered it in college when I took from a teacher who would eventually become a coach to many “American Idol” finalists.  Over the past 20
