Pursuing a Master's of Music (trumpet performance) degree at the University of Iowa under the tutelage of Dr. Amy Schendel, John Kenneth (more commonly known as Kenken), is a versatile performer and teacher. With a Bachelor of Science degree in music education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, he is prepared for any teaching or performing scenario that comes his way. Some examples of his many skills are shown through his performances in central Europe (2014), recitals, and his own students' performances. Much of his success comes from his past mentors, and his self-motivation of becoming a better musician and teacher as his career continues. Services that Kenken can offer private lessons (piano, trumpet, guitar), chamber music, and substituting for ensembles both large and small. Given that he has had much experience in many areas of music such as brass quintets, brass ensembles, organ, jazz ensembles, and orchestras, there should be no doubt that you will receive quality music and/or instruction from him.
