Classical music is my first love, but I can get lost in all good music. I was trained as a classical pianist and have a Master's Degree in Instrument Music from Arizona State University where I studied piano with Arnold Bullock and composition with Ronald LoPresti. I also studied with Jared Spears who is now the Composer in Residence with the St. Louis Wind Ensemble (part of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra). I also spent the summer studying with Gary Nelson at Oberlin Conservatory of Music.

I have been away from music for many years. Now I strive to unhinge unused and atrophied musical skills. In this quest I enjoin all here to help advise and instruct in this odyssey for musical fulfillment as I desire to be a friend of your hopes and musical desires.

Your music is so lovely and intricate and I don't have words for how it makes me feel. Thank you for it. It is an honor to have received a favorable review from you for my simple "Last of the Wine."

Kenneth, Thank you for review of my song "Conversation with Time" from my acoustic solo piano CD "Castle of Dreams". The song was actually recorded using a Kawia Grand piano in a recording studio in Upper Darby PA. Cheeks Studios.

Hello Kenneth,

I was preparing to send you the polite and perfunctory thank you message for your kind review of "Space In Time". However before I got to that I went on your page and listened to a few of your works.

Oh my. You are a serious talent. I especially enjoyed Clarinet Quintet and House on Gable Island. Your compositions are on par with one of my favorite composers, Leonard Bernstein.

Let me just say that when a composer of your caliber says that something I wrote is good, well then...... okay.

Thank you for the stunning review I'm flattered that you enjoyed it. ............. kenney
