Here’s what students have to say…

Brandon Avers - Littleton Guitar School“Ken isn’t going to teach you how to play guitar, he’s going to teach you to become a guitarist.”

Ken didn’t interfere with the development of my sound but rather guided it, or in many cases enhanced it, and sped up the overall process of its creation. He helps you become a musician, someone who can play other songs or write your own, learn to improvise on the spot, and become a performer.” – Brandon Avers

This is one of few things that is all mine and looked forward to it every week. Thank you also for opening my eyes to new songs, styles and rhythms. I have become a fan of several groups that I had never heard before thanks to you. ” – Ivette Mendez-Kelly

Justin Eubanks - Max's Midnight Kitchen - Littleton Guitar School“I got firsthand experience of what it looks like to be an excellent music teacher.”

I’ve been able to apply the knowledge I gained from working with Ken to teaching different instruments and styles, and I got firsthand experience of what it looks like to be an excellent music teacher.” – Justin Eubanks
