Kevin de Miranda, American music maker, has courted the classical guitar through a myriad of adventures studying under master musicians and performing in the United States, Europe, and Asia. All of his musical projects strive to achieve this goal: to bring uplifting musical experiences to whoever possible.
He began studying the guitar in his home state of North Carolina at 13 with Hong Kong guitarist Patrick Lui. Several years later he had won first prize in several national youth competitions. He received a bachelor’s degree in classical guitar performance during his study in the esteemed studio of Andrew Zohn at the Schwob School of Music in Columbus, Georgia. After graduating, Kevin migrated to Europe with the intention to further his musical knowledge. He spent one year in Lugano, Switzerland, where he studied with Lorenzo Micheli, and performed in intimate settings in many cities across Europe. In 2019 he graduated with a master's degree in classical guitar from the University of Denver after studying under Jonathan Leathwood.
Kevin is passionate about teaching and sharing the secrets he has learned during his musical journey. He teaches in English, Japanese, and Chinese. He also has given masterclasses and seminars in guitar festivals in the US and China. He is currently living in Wenzhou, China, where he teaches at the Wenzhou Guitar Art Academy.
