Piano virtuoso & composer Kevin B. is a musician on a mission: to create music that invokes the best of the golden age of 70’s R&B spirituality and harmonic grace, combined with contemporary beat science and his own artistic vision and influences.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
