Kevin McCollough is a jazz pianist, arranger, and music educator from San Jose CA and holds degrees and teaching credential from San Jose State University. There, Kevin studied under Frank Sumeras and John Schifflett and Wayne Wallace - the later of whom fostered Kevin's interest in Afro-Cuban and Latin Jazz music and tutored him in the art of arranging. Kevin also studied drumset and percussion with Wally Schnalle throughout junior high school and high school. Kevin now plays, writes, arranges, and teaches professionally, and has been involved in several groups playing and writing for a variety of styles of music (though his heart will always belong to Afro-Cuban jazz and Rockabilly music). He credits his family, the aforementioned teachers, and Nancy Farmer for sparking his musical interest in his early years.
