Kirk grew up in a small Texas town South of Dallas, began playing drums and piano at age 8 in church, and played his first professional gig at age 15. In college, Kirk studied drums, piano, and guitar and has played in a number of Rock, Folk Rock, Heavy Metal, Jazz, Trip-hop, Funk, Country Rock, and Alternative Rock bands.
Kirk earned a degree in Music Media at the University of Texas at Arlington and has been teaching piano and drums lessons since 1995. He also plays piano at classical recitals at his Alma Mater where he studied piano under Dr. John Solomons and Dr. Larry Wiley while playing drums for two different Jazz bands. One of the Jazz tunes that Kirk played both keyboard and drums on was even voted #1 Jazz MP3 on the MP3 website.
After spending five years in Chicago, IL, where he taught music at Truman College, Flatts & Sharpe Music, and Northside Catholic Academy, Kirk has returned to Texas.
Kirk now lives in Austin with his beautiful wife and daughter teaching drums and piano lessons serving Round Rock and Pflugerville. All of the family are pleased as punch that they will never have to endure subzero temperatures for an entire winter ever again.
Today, Kirk teaches piano and drum lessons at the Northwest School of Music for quality music lessons by University trained instructors for guitar lessons, piano lessons, voice lessons, drums, violin, ukulele, flute, clarinet, bass in Pflugerville and Round Rock, Texas.Back to Classes & Teachers>
