About Kenn

I have been working with computers, and programming them, since 1978. I received an Associates Degree in Computer Science from Austin Community College, Austin, TX, in December of 1979, receiving a 3.556 GPA for 90 hours of credits.

As far as my hobbies go, my main hobby is playing the guitar. I have played the guitar for over 50 years, and have tutored several people, including my niece and her husband, who are now performing in Cedar Park, TX. I also played in a Jazz band, as well as the marching band, in high school in Leander, TX. I have tutored people in the use of MuseScore (a scorewriter for Windows, OS X, and Linux, comparable to Finale and Sibelius, supporting a wide variety of file formats and input methods) in Springfield, MO. MuseScore is a program that is released as free and open-source software under the GNU General Public License.

I am interesting in tutoring in computer programming, to offer any assistance in helping someone better understand and appreciate programming in it's various formats. I also enjoy playing the guitar, as a way to relax, and would enjoy teaching anyone that is interested in a method called pick-strumming, which combines both picking and strumming a guitar simultaneously.
