About Me

Hey there! My name is Kyle Tripp and I'm very excited to be a part of the Music & Arts family. Joining this team of talented musicians and exceptional educators is such a great opportunity for me to share my knowledge and expertise as part of an already fantastic outlet for families and other musicians alike. 

I have been a performing musician for over 20 years and have had the honor of sharing the stage with local, regional, and national touring acts since I was a teen. I have vast experience in live performance in all applications from small coffee house gigs to large outdoor festivals. I specialize in drums and percussion as well as electric and acoustic guitars. After touring the Northeast I became heavily involved in the production side of the music industry. From managing stages and booking artists to producing all sized events from the ground up, I was exposed to a completely different aspect of music. 

I also spent over 10 years playing and teaching for a number of different drum corps through out Connecticut. I've worked with beginners as young as 6 years old to advanced adult musicians. Teaching and educating people in all forms of music is a great passion of mine and something I hope to continue to do as long as I'm still playing. 

I invite you to come visit me in the store so that I might answer any questions you may have about any of our products or services. I'm always happy to share my knowledge with anyone and offer any advice I can to the aspiring musician. Whether you're looking for your first instrument or your last I'm happy to help you no matter where you might be in your musical journey. Hope to see you soon!
