About
Professional classical guitar player open for weddings (including cocktail hours, ceremonies, and dinners), corporate events, and parties. Specializing in Latin, popular arrangements for classical guitar, standard classical repertoire, and original compositions.

A graduate of the University of Delaware with master's degrees in music composition and guitar performance, Kevin has studied with composers Patrick Long, Jennifer Barker, and Andrew Bleckner as well as guitarists Matthew Slotkin and Christiaan Taggart. He has also received the Delaware Division of the Arts Emerging and Established Professional Awards for Music Composition as well as the Emerging Professional Award for Music: Solo Recital and was featured on the cover of Soundboard Magazine in their 40th Anniversary Edition with a focus on composition for the guitar.

Kevin's first CD Destination Unknown, Original Compositions I, Solo Guitar Vol. 1 was described by Classical Guitar Magazine as "a fascinating and stimulating debut that gets better and better the more you listen to it" while analyzing Kevin's compositions as "though there are certainly nods to less conventional modern strains, and a certain dark solemnity...infuses much of this, it still ultimately feels very accessible."

An experienced guitar teacher, Kevin teaches with the University of Delaware Community Music School and the Darlington Arts Center (Garnet Valley, PA) as well as teaching private guitar and composition students. Kevin is also an experienced Suzuki Guitar instructor in the Newark, DE area.

Currently the president of the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society Kevin continues to work to enhance the influence the classical guitar and contemporary art music in the Philadelphia area.

Kevin was amazing to work with and very accomodating to what I wanted. We were so happy with his performance during our wedding ceremony. His music was beautiful and we couldn't have asked for me. We would definitely suggest him for your wedding or event!
