The JCC is proud to introduce professional recording artist Kevin Leahy as its new violin and guitar teacher. Leahy [pictured left], of Marblehead, plays, performs and composes music. He recently signed with FolkWit Records.

“I’m profoundly passionate about music,” Leahy said.  “I give students a strong basis in technique and theory. I also teach them to love music.”

Leahy offers beginning violin students classical training in the popular Suzuki method. He teaches beginner and intermediate guitar students with a focus on performance and improvisation. He customizes lessons to each individual.

Leahy joins PJ Holaday, who teaches drums at the JCC. Holaday has studied music for years and performs in concert and rock bands, along with jazz ensembles. He has a lot of experience working with children.

Holaday and Leahy teach kids and adults of all abilities. The JCC’s JamRoom is open every afternoon for people to come and play music. It features an electric guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and recording equipment.

For more information about the JCC’s music lessons and JamRoom, contact Youth Director Ashley Corcoran at 781-476-9907 or acorcoran@jccns.com.
