Lessons & Learning
Students of any age or experience level can expect to learn about guitar playing technique, styles, music theory, songwriting, and/or singing to accompany their playing. They can learn electric, acoustic, or bass guitar. Lessons can be any length, any pace, and are generally 30, 45, or 60 minutes. I service most of the greater Los Angeles area, and can either travel to the student, or meet at my studio. Rates are based on a sliding scale, continent upon distance, length of lesson, etc.

Muzic School Records
Inspired by some of his students, Kerry wrote songs aimed at building social skills. Partnered with legendary record company executive Richie Gallo, Muzic School Records was formed! Produced by famed record producer Mark Mazzetti, the Songs About Us E.P. was released in 2016. It immediately garnered rave reviews, winning both the Parents’ Choice and NAPPA awards for that year!
