Kevin took his first drum lesson with revered percussionist in 1980 at the age of 11. Six months later he boldly announced to the world, "I am going to college to study music". During the following 6 years, he held on to that dream, which eventually culminated in his acceptance to the Ball State University School of Music as a student of renowned tympanist Dr. Erwin C. Mueller. Kevin flourished as a collegiate percussionist and, in addition to his involvement in all of the top collegiate ensembles, became a frequent performer with many of the semi-professional orchestras in central Indiana.
Kevin joined the 2112 staff in 2006 as a drum instructor. On days when he is not teaching Kevin can be found behind the counter in 2112 store.
When not hitting things, Kevin enjoys biking and his newest passion, wood turning.
