Kevin Hayes

I'm an award-winning composer, songwriter, producer & bass player. Career highlights include 2 Academy Award Nominated documentary films.
Teaching Philosophy

First and foremost, we're gonna have fun, because that's what music's all about.

And, whether you want to make a living in the music business, or do it for your own enjoyment, I will always be 100% honest with you and give you the benefit of my continuing real-world experience.

Experience

I have 25+ years of experience as a professional film and television composer, songwriter, bass player, producer and well... there aren't many hats I haven't had an opportunity to wear (I even did lights for John Kay and Steppenwolf once, but that's a long story :)
