Technique is a means to an end, but essential. Alone, it’s not art, but allows you to communicate your heart and soul. In the end, that’s what the listener wants from your performance.

“My work with Ken has been instrumental in my growth as a vocalist, musician, and performer. The improvements in my technical ability, comfort on stage, and artistry have surpassed anything I dreamed of when I first stepped onto his doorstep. It’s been an absolute pleasure and privilege working with Ken — I would recommend him to anyone.” — William Rutter, MIT Boston
