Kevin Wyman is a multi-instrumentalist, who has proven himself as an entertaining performer and a devoted educator. His versatility on a collection of instruments – including bass, acoustic & electric guitar, piano, drums and banjo – has taught Kevin that one does not teach a student how to play an instrument. Ultimately, you are showing a student how to make music. He specializes in teaching jazz and blues to intermediate and advanced students, but has a love for working with beginners and young children to foster musical growth as well. Kevin earned his Bachelor’s of Music from the University of Massachusetts in Lowell. There, he studied both bass and piano under the direction of countless world-class jazz and classical musicians. Through his excellent education in jazz music, Kevin developed a philosophy of teaching music through making music. While memorizing scales may be helpful to a beginner, to grow as a musician, you must make music with others. This idea shapes how Kevin prepares each lesson – the student should be making music with the teacher as soon as possible. Kevin currently lives in Middletown, CT, and is constantly working to better himself as a musician and an educator.
