and switching to Db Music and Dance.


We’re so happy to find Kevin to teach our oldest daughter the piano. A couple years back she was ready to give up the piano, because of her lack of progress. However, since finding Kevin to teach her, she has improved leaps and bounds. Furthermore, her interest and joy of playing the piano has been rejuvenated! She plays better than ever, and her comprehension is much more complete. Now, our second, four-year-old, has started with Kevin and he has been very patient with her. She continues to progress weekly. Kevin has a way of talking and teaching children music in a way that they can understand. We enjoy having him teach them. --Thu D.
My 7 year old daughter wanted to play the piano since 5, so we finely got her lessons elsewhere at 6. She was so excited, but after a year it got boring and wasn’t learning much. Then we found Kevin! He made learning music very easy and fun for her. Now, she is always practicing and trying to make her own music notes, as well as learning theory of music. Kevin is very welcoming and is great with my daughter. She loves him! He is also very knowledgeable and passionate about music and plays multiple instruments. We’re very happy and satisfied with him. -- Judy S.
This is long due! My boys have been taking Piano with Kevin for over two years now. They had some piano lessons with a different teacher before, but when they started with Kevin, the immediate improvement was noticeable. He worked on techniques, posture and most important, reading music. Before that, all they played and knew was based on repetition and playing with the keys. I love Kevin's methods, his patience and precision are also great qualities when working with kids. I highly recommend him. He also does recitals, and it's great to see all the kids and the improvements made from one year to the other. His studio is in a great location and during this new time of C-19, he has continued to teach over FaceTime! My kids have not missed one class! Always punctual and enthusiastic. Very professional! --Luz M.

We first got to know Kevin when two of our kids had taken piano lessons with someone else for a year and wanted to quit. We were able to work with Kevin as their teacher for a month. They both wanted to continue piano lessons after working with Kevin. We decided to have Kevin teach all three of our kids (ages 7-11) since Fall of 2019, and we've continued with online lessons during the recent months. I highly recommend Kevin as someone who I know can keep children at different ages, levels of skill and motivation feel good about piano and develop at a pace that works for them. --Gabriel E.

After 10 years of guitar lessons, my son wanted to learn to play the piano. We found Kevin online, and we couldn't be more pleased. Kevin has extensive piano knowledge and skill, and has shown patience and humor in guiding my son's musical journey. He's flexible with his time, and even provided virtual lessons via FaceTime during quaratine. My son continues to improve. We are very happy we found Kevin! --Sheba G.

My son has been coming to Kevin for a few months now. He's 6 and loves his classes. Kevin has so much patience and fun ways to keep kids entertained while learning. He plays the piano. I definitely recommend DB Music, look no further for a quality instructor! Great pricing as well.

 Listen to what some adult students had to say about their lessons with Db Music and Dance.


I am an adult beginner piano player, and I have been taking lessons for about 8 months. The last 4 have been with Kevin, and I have progressed very quickly in that short time. I wanted to take lessons from someone that could give me more than following the books myself or watching tutorials online, and Kevin gives me the feedback I need to quickly improve. Kevin has helped me focus on the elements of playing that are important to my current ability, and has ensured that I have a solid base in the fundamentals that will help me as I progress in my playing. I have improved quickly and remained motivated, but I have never felt overwhelmed. -- Jacob A.

Kevin is an AWESOME salsa and bachata instructor, and I highly recommend him!  I am a pretty good dancer, although my husband (fiancee at the time) and I wanted to learn how to salsa dance together.  Kevin assisted us with our first dance song for our wedding which was 9/20/13, and we are SO glad we got lessons from him!  Kevin was friendly, patient, and very talented.  We now have a solid foundation with the basic salsa and bachata steps thanks to him:)  His prices are reasonable and he was flexible with his schedule.  Two thumbs up!! --Jen B.

I highly recommend Kevin as a piano teacher. I have found him to be very competent and professional. During my lesson he never makes me feel pressured or nervous, which I think is an important quality in a teacher. He has helped me understand some of the basic mechanics of playing correctly, which are much harder to master than one would think. I always come away from my lesson feeling encouraged, and looking forward to practicing and playing better. --Jeanne K.

Kevin is a gifted musician and teacher. He is attentive about taking time to have you learn the proper techniques whatever your goal in music is. The technical part of learning never seems out of reach or off-putting. I believe Kevin to be a thoughtful listener who knows how to communicate personally to each student so that they can grasp concepts at their level or speed while feeling encouraged. He is patient and persistent funny and meticulous with details; always covering all you need to know...You will definitely learn to play and read correctly ( and have fun & laugh!).Kevin is a rare find and I would gladly refer him. --Eileen B.

After being away from piano for almost 30 years (since college), his patience and knowledge is making the instrument fun to learn again without all of the confusion that comes with a classroom experience. -- Eugene H.
