Hi, I'm Kevin! I've been playing guitar for over 20 years, and I absolutely love to play and teach music! I graduated cum laude from Musicians Institute in 2016 with B.A. in Guitar Performance and the 2016 Outstanding Student Award. I worked at Musicians Institute as a teaching assistant until the campus temporarily closed its doors at the beginning of the quarantine. I also taught guitar and ukulele at The Los Angeles Conservatory of Music, and currently teach guitar and ukulele for a music ...

Starting to see improvement. It?s really helpful to get feedback on the mechanics and had positions. Great lesson, thanks again.

Thank you so much Kevin, Sebastian is really enjoying learning guitar with you! He was very excited about what he learned yesterday.
- Jenny O. from Thousand Oaks, CA
Great teacher offered a Lot of good solutions and material to help refine skills. He was able to help me improve my technique a little bit better and show me ways to get more consistent in my chord transitions.

Kevin C helped me a lot with my chords and my favorite song The grange by ZZ Top. Very nice

Kevin has a full understanding of guitar. I am a fairly accomplished guitarist who has played for over fifty years and Kevin is helping me understand the theory behind the notes. Highly recommended.

Kevin knows how to teach you what you want while at the same time preparing a foundation for you to expand upon. He has the bigger picture in mind and yet is attentive to the small details that make a world of difference. Your money will be well spent if you select him as a teacher/ tutor.

I am so happy to have found Kevin to teach my daughter guitar! She looks forward to her lessons with him. He is kind, patient and explains everything clearly to her. She says he is a great teacher who really pays attention to her. I really love that he provides feedback after every lesson and explains what was covered during the lesson. Thank you so much Kevin!

We started the lesson with the sheet music for a guitar-specific version of a Beetles song that Kevin prepared, and I am glad we were able to jump right in rather than any sort of protracted time for introductions and for me to try to tell him what I thought I already knew, as it all came out pretty quickly by demonstration. At around 45 minutes in, as I asked him some questions and the discussion of the parts of the first piece to work on were pretty much done, he threw together and posted a second song to help me focus on wrist technique as well. It was great that he was able to put that together on the spot.

Thank you so much Kevin, Sebastian really enjoys his lessons, you?re very patient and very talented. He?s looking forward to the next lesson.
- Jenny O. from Thousand Oaks, CA
Kevin was very present, took the time to answer questions, and helped me to feel more comfortable with the beginnings of learning to play an instrument. I gained understanding of different methods of strumming, frets, placement of fingers for chords, and began learning to play Stand By Me. I found Kevin to be clear in teaching and explaining, and patient.
- Kim D. from Havertown, PA
He paid close attention to what I wanted to learn and tailored the lesson accordingly. He spent the time to prepare transcriptions. Looking forward to more great lessons!

Kevin is teaching our children how to tune, strum, read music, and play guitar and base. He recommended great resources. He was patient and kind. Great teacher! We recommend Kevin! He is a great teacher!
- Shane L. from Pacific Palisades, CA
Long time casual guitar player, trying to start working with the bass guitar. Kevin really got me started off on the right track, leveraged my guitar background, covered a lot of the fundamentals using a Tom Petty song to make it fun and informative. Will definitely be continuing lessons with Kevin over the next few weeks/months as I head down the road of bass proficiency.
- Marc C. from Metairie, LA
Kevin is an awesome teacher! We worked on funk guitar and blues guitar techniques. Kevin has complete mastery of these styles and also has gift for conveying information to students in a concise and accessible manner. Kevin was also one of the more qualified and experienced teachers I could find. He has a bachelors degree in music and comes prepared to lessons with charts, transcriptions, and theoretical analysis of tunes. He invests a lot of time preparing lessons and tailoring them to each students musical ability, interests, and goals. Kevin is not a ?one size fits all? teacher. Hit this guy up if you?re looking for someone who will be passionate and personally invested in you achieving your musical goals!!!
- Steven C. from Little Rock, AR
I loved my lesson with Kevin! I just don't know where to begin. He has an astounding breadth of knowledge that he shares in a funny and relatable manner. We covered so much ground in our first lesson that I already feel like a proper guitar player. Not only is Kevin's teaching style very accessible and easy to absorb, but he's also encouraging and supportive. The way he structures the lesson allows you to learn important tips and bits of information while you're practicing a song. I've taken guitar lessons before from other instructors, and Kevin's format is far more enjoyable and effective in my opinion. I will definitely continue taking classes with Kevin, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced, joyful, and efficient teacher.

For my lesson, I wanted to learn how to play the song "Memory" by Sugarcult. Kevin prepared music charts ahead of time, and we went over how to play the song section by section. Kevin taught me how to work on my timing by using a metronome, and he also covered how important strum pattern is for keeping a steady beat. He was a very nice, patient tutor, and I learned so much!
