His courses have been thoroughly tested with over a thousand students over the years.  He is also very active in the MTNA (Music Teachers National Association), and the UMTA (Utah Music Teachers Association) serving in the presidency of his chapter a number of times. Eminently qualified, he lectures regularly at schools, colleges, and chapters and conventions of the Music Teachers National Association. 

            Ken is also a  Registered Piano Technician with the Piano Technicians Guild, passing a series of rigorous examinations on the maintenance, repair, and tuning of pianos; Only RPT's are authorized by  The PIano Technicians Guild to display the logo containing the words "Registered Piano Technician". His understanding of the mechanics of the piano, and what a performing artist needs in both touch and sound, brings an unsurpassed  quality and precision to his work..

Note:  I love pianos inside and out, I thoroughly enjoy teaching, playing, repairing, voicing, and regulating pianos.  Music is a gift, and being able to work on such a wonderful instrument that can bring so much pleasure to your life is a thrill.
