Teaching Philosophy + Background
“I believe the most precious thing is the impulse of the artist. We all have only one unique expression. My role is one of service; to help artists unlock the functional components of their singing voice so they can find the freedom to fully express themselves through song.”
Kevin has a rich background in performing and has sung alongside Patti LaBelle, Michelle Williams, Dionne Warwick, Leslie Jordan, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Norm Lewis, Laura Osnes, Rayshun Lamarr, Morgan James, and Nova Payton. Kevin has a performed as a soloist with the National Phil Harmonic Orchestra (Strathmore), the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, and you can catch him in several PBS specials with The American Pops Orchestra (One Voice, Wicked In Concert, Ella’s Swinging Christmas, We Are Family.)
