My lessons are driven by 3 simple goals for each student. 1. Learn Songs You Want to Play! 2. Simplify Lessons to Your Skill Level! 3. Make Learning Music Fun! PRICES $25 for 30 Minutes $35 for 45 Minutes $45 for 1 Hour Group Lessons - $25 Per Person Per Hour I also am a LIVE MUSIC PERFORMER. So, I often get my students playing with me at local restaurants and coffee shops within a few months if they would like to. I also have a helpful youtube channel with guitar tutorials posted often.

    I really like Kevin's upbeat (pardon the pun) nature. He's always positive and that's what it takes for a student to continue to enjoy learning. I've had a very good experience with Kevin and his price is right. Kevin TRULY teaches the joy of making music.

    Kevin has been instructing my 11 yo son in private and group lessons for the past year. Initially my son was reluctant to learn and instrument but Kevin has been able to make it fun by playing the music he enjoys. My son practices on his own, without me having to nag, a true testament to how much he enjoys guitar with Kevin. Administratively, Kevin is organized and straightforward. We feel very lucky to have found Kevin - he has enriched our son's life.

    After stuggling trying to do "my own thing" online from YouTube videos, etc. to learn guitar for a year or two I have done online guitar lessons with Kevin for ~2 years. Kevin is great. He teaches what you want, when you want and made/kept it fun. If he can teach me, he can teach anyone! Great patience, great pace and always music I was interested in. The fact I can play anything still amazes me. I highly recommend!



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I truly enjoy teaching. I've taught in the public school classroom for 11 years. Teaching music is so so much FUN! And it should be fun for the students to learn. When I'm teaching I tell all my students that if they don't enjoy and smile about something, then we need to change something. I would love to start lessons with you soon.

I have my degree in Elementary Education 

Taught in Public Schools for Over 10 Years 

Have Played Guitar for Over 20 Years

Have Played Drums for Over 25 Years

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently had several of my students play with me at a local gig.  They enjoyed it and got a chance to even earn their own tips and invite their friends and family to their own paying gig!  How fun!!!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Definitley find a teacher that works good for your location and you enjoy their teaching style.  They need to help you learn songs that YOU want to play.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

A student should know what their short and long term goals are.  It's also helpful to know why you even want to learn to play the instrument.
