Kevin’s knowledge and expertise in guitar techniques, improvisation, production, and recording will prove invaluable to students at all stages of musical development. He is honest, dependable, hard-working, and he genuinely cares about people. Beyond that, he is someone who loves teaching and fostering a positive, supportive environment.
Walking out of my first lesson with Kevin, I felt like I finally was going in the right direction. Through talking with me and both of us playing a little bit, Kevin was able to assess my skill level and put a specific plan in place for me. I’m impressed with Kevin’s vast musical knowledge but more importantly his ability to really listen to his students and impart his knowledge to them in a fun and very encouraging environment.
Kevin Holland is a wonderful teacher and a wonderful person. I studied classical guitar with Kevin from age seven to seventeen, and I continue to value the musical skill and expression I learned while in lessons with him. As my skills grew and my interests expanded, he ensured I continued to progress with classical guitar, but given his knowledge and wide skill set, he was able to help me explore jazz, improvisation, and music theory. Kevin is kind, understanding, smart, creative, and a wonderful teacher. Music is his life, and I am so glad he made music a part of mine.
“I studied guitar under Kevin Holland for many years. Kevin was a patient, gentle, but efficient instructor, parsing out the parts I needed to work on, sharing technique, and best of all, demonstrating how it could be done. Watching him play would inspire me all over again. With Kevin’s encouragement and coaching, I acquired the confidence and level of musicianship to play publicly. I played guitar at another wedding just a few weeks ago. Kevin is a gifted, versatile, and inspiring teacher and musician. I would recommend him to anyone interested in learning to play guitar, regardless of their current experience level or area of interest.”
