Other Quotes from students
“I think anyone who is interested in learning jazz or music in general, regardless or your instrument, should get on board with this deal. When I first signed up, I wasn't sure what I'd be getting into, but I'm glad I did invest these lessons. I've gotten way better at lots of concepts that I only had a vague familiarity with at the start of college. My writing has improved tenfold, I can keep time better than I could at the start of the semester, I'm getting more gigs now and networking more, and my musical ideas have really grown and developed in ways I didn't think possible. Kevin Hicks is a UNT alum, was lead bone in the One O'Clock Lab Band, but also knows how virtually every instrument works in a musical setting. He's taught people who are now in the One O'Clock, avid bandleaders, composers, and arrangers, and people who simply wanted to get better, and have. ” -David Rice
“Kevin Hicks is a great teacher who is amazing in what he does with music! I've worked with him both in person and via his online lesson studio and I am very grateful to have such a talented resource. I took some of the skills learned with him, sight reading in particular, straight to the audition circuit and experienced the success of his guidance.
If you're hoping to improve your musicianship, or know someone who is, please check out what he's all about and sign up for some lessons!” –Chris Reaves
“Anyone who considers the idea of taking music lessons (no matter the instrument) should stop what they're doing and sign up for Kevin's online music studio immediately! This man has done wonders for my playing and continues to guide me down the right path every single lesson! Whether it's improving my time and feel, analyzing tunes, teaching me theory, or even teaching me how to act classy and professional; this is your guy for learning how to become a successful jazz musician. You still have time to sign up! As a student who studies under him weekly, I can assure you IT IS WORTH IT.” –Wyatt Thomas
“The one single person that influenced my own playing and has offered the most effective and down to earth tips and lessons on jazz trombone. Kevin shared the most valuable lesson I've ever had with me several years ago and I've seen it transform my playing. His concept on practicing time has allowed me to learn a vast array of styles and technique simply because he showed me the secret to great feel and style over all styles of music. Lessons in his online studio have provided the tools I needed to take my music one step further. In addition, Monster sight reader is an essential purchase for any musician. His execution of this practice has made Kevin the best sight reader I've ever witnessed. Thank you for your approach to sharing your own concepts with the Trombone world.” - Steve Anderson
