Testimonials from former students:

“When Kevin was in Nashville, I had the pleasure of taking guitar lessons with him for approximately a year.  He is an excellent teacher and musician.  He finds ways to explain things in ways that are easy to understand and is able to tailor your lessons to your ability in a way that is enough to challenge you and keep you improving, but isn’t so hard that you get frustrated.  I saw my skills improve dramatically while taking lessons from him and highly recommend anyone looking to improve their musical talent to give Kevin a try.” —Michael O’Brien

“I took guitar lessons with Kevin in Oak Park Illinois, and learned far more than I thought possible.  While my original goal was to learn enough guitar to accompany myself singing, basic chords and strumming, Kevin had far higher goals for me than I had for myself!” —Deborah Adelman
