After many years of teaching, performing and recording I realized that I have an abundance of experience, contacts, guidance, knowledge and wisdom to share with my students who can benefit from it now rather than go to college or university which may be expensive and time consuming.

If you have an interest in learning to play the guitar from the ground up or if you have particular recordings artist or groups that you would like me to teach you their, then please give me a call.... thank you

    My 6 yr old has been taking piano lessons from Kendall for a year now. He not only focuses on how to play songs in piano, but also teaches music theory, which is key to learning music. Mr. Kendall has been an outstanding music teacher.

    Kendall, is an awesome instructor with a lot of talent
    and experience. I am learning to play the guitar
    (flamenco style) and he is helping me step by step
    through the whole process. He is patient and
    understands your playing level but still pushes you to
    get even better. I would definitely recommend him to
    anybody wanting to learn the harder and livelier styles
    as well as the classical guitar. This man is a very
    dedicated instructor and plenty can be learned by him!

    Frequently asked questions

    I start with the student /explain to them the parts of the guitar/earn a few "cowboy chords" then explain the fingerings for the chords : "E, A and D".

    These chords are basic to every guitar student and other chords are added week by week. If there is an interest in styles such as rock, rhythm and blues, classical or flamenco then I can offer the student those disciplines. 

    Most students who start out, usually begin at rock or classical, depending on their listening experience. for example, if they listen to popular music, usually a course i

    If the student request piano, I can also teach piano.  REcently, I have been implementing "piano exam" materialfor spring exams to test the student based upon a universal system.

    My standard is 30 dollars a/ half-hour  or a month at $120  ( 4 lessons)within a 25 mile radius from my address If you sign up for more lessons or more time than the rate drops according to what you and I can agree on.

    I can also teach private lessons for family classes that have a private room set-up for just that.

    I worked at a music store partime while working a day job.

    Adults who needed to learn as a favorite pastime.

    I prepare students for recitals. In the past three years, I have had summer and winter recitals so parents can see and experience their children's progress. Also, its a great way for young musicians' to meet other students in their age group and for parents to see value for their time and energy.

    Make sure he/she is consistent; keeps a journal with dates, payments and times of the lessons and can perform on the instrument.

    If a child with a parent can be open to understanding how to set goals and meet them, then I can help them. Practicing is learned; it begins with 10-15 minutes a day; experiencing the pleasure of accomplishment on an instrument such as on the piano or guitar is invaluable; a desire to play or perform a favorite piece, song or exercise should be the reason to begin lessons.
