Kent Smith

Music Instructor, Composer, and Performer.

Hello music lovers! My goal in life is to bring the absolute joy of learning a musical instrument to as many people as possible. I'm a full-time music instructor with over 25 years of professional experience. The topics covered in my video tutorials come directly from my teaching experience. When recording a lecture or course, I choose a familiar student who would be able to understand the material, and I imagine I'm teaching directly to that student. My chosen student varies, according to the topic and the level of experience required.

I started drum lessons at age 7, and landed a regular job with an R&B band in Philadelphia at 14. After a fellow drummer turned me on to piano improvisation, I was hooked. I went on to take formal lessons in classical and jazz piano. Due to an urgent need at a music school where I was employed, I also learned enough guitar to teach beginners. I have a college degree in music, with a focus on classical and jazz piano.

I love to teach, and I want you to learn! It doesn't matter if you just want to play a few simple songs on the piano, or if you want to play professionally, or anything in between -- I would love to help you!
