Experienced Music Teacher
Taking a profound interest in the guitar at the age of 6, Mr. McClain developed a keen sense of improvisational skills in his earlier years. Playing by ear and studying books about music eventually led his interests towards the piano as well. Kevin would begin playing in multiple styles of amateur bands that included rock, jazz, funk, bluegrass, and improvisational Jam-bands during his teenage years. After high school Kevin gained great experience gigging professionally in various experimental bluegrass, rock, and Jam-bands. He soon sought more stable work as a musician and composer. He returned to school to obtain a degree in music performance and composition. After rapidly advancing on the piano and furthering his studies in classical and jazz music in college, his interests gravitated toward advanced studies in music theory and composition. Now an experienced music teacher, Kevin performs professionally for private and public recitals, festivals, musical contests, conventions, restaurants, weddings, etcetera. Kevin started McMusic Lessons and Performances in 2008. He has been teaching studies on the guitar and piano to all ages while continuing to perform professionally.
