I have several friends who are past or current students of Kevin, and I really wanted to learn the best technique to get the most out of my time and money – so I went to the best.
Playing guitar is a huge investment in time and energy. You need to make the most of that to get the best out of it – and having a great teacher like Kevin is the best start.
To sum up my experience of working with Kevin over the past 15 years - Since I began with him, my playing career and my life in general have both travelled down a very positive path to become the kind of player I had always dreamed of being. I am looking forward to continuing this working relationship for many years to come.
I can help you with any guitar related learning problem and they can be solved very quickly.
I know just about every learning related problem there is and I give you expert feedback on your progress. This will help you to know where you are currently and what you need to focus on to improve at a faster rate. You will be encouraged to ask questions if you are not sure of anything we cover. You will also be surrounded by other guitarists that are at a similar level to you so that you can play with them, join in on seminars and performance groups, and make musical friends that you will have for years to come.
You will also get the opportunity to study with some of the world’s best guitarists like Robben Ford, Bruce Forman, and Larry Koonse, who come and give seminars and workshops exclusively for me. These workshops and seminars are not open to anyone other than my students. No matter if you are a learner, intermediate, or professional level player, I have the ability, training, and know-how to supercharge your playing ability right now. You will also have a lot of fun playing and practicing no matter what style of music you want to play or level you want to achieve.
I've been playing bass for 40 years and all that time people have told me that reading music was too hard. Then I started with Kevin to learn how to do it. Now 5 months later I am in my first reading band and looking forward to the many gigs they have. This band includes the best players in the area as well.
All levels taught

I have had a few guitar teachers over the years. I found that what I was taught didn't really prepare me for the “real world” of music. Kevin has been good in helping me to clearly understand things and has taught me to be able to apply my skills in the real world.
