"I have had Kevin come in and work with my university students on several occasions to teach songwriting and music production. In all instances, it has been a wonderful experience for the classes. I never cease to be amazed by Kevin’s depth of experience in so many kinds of music, and by how easily and effectively he is able to share this wealth of knowledge with the students. He is an excellent teacher, and it is a pleasure to watch him work."
