About Kevin Turner

Kevin Turner
Kevin Turner
Music Teacher, Master
Location: Yorktown, VA
Speaks: English
Instructs: Banjo, Bass Guitar, Guitar, Ukulele
Education: I have a BA in philosophy with a minor in guitar performance. I continued taking music classes and private lessons for a few years after my official college graduation.
Performance Experience: I've been performing music for for nearly 30 years with various local and regional acts. I currently play with five different bands and keep a full schedule playing close to 100 shows per year.
Teaching Experience: I have over 20 years of teaching music under my belt and have been a full-time music teacher for the past 10 years
Teaching Philosophy: I want my students to play the music that they are interested in so they will be motivated to pick up their instruments. During the lesson, I use whatever song the student is working on to launch into a music theory lesson, including scales and chord spelling. I also try to get all of my students excited about learning to read sheet music and becoming proficient with their note reading, this provides a lot of structure for the lessons.
