New Teacher Alert: Multi-instrumentalist Ken Kanwisher

The OFC is very happy to welcome Kenny Kanwisher to the team. Ken has been a full-time musician since he graduated from Humber College’s music program in the seventies. His work as a bassist is well known in his hometown of Ottawa and he is one of the first-call musicians in town for shows and recording. He has played upright jazz bass with a who’s who of Ottawa talent as well as many well-known names passing through town. Kenny is a regular in a number of bands and fronts his own jazz ensemble The Sugar Sticks. For the last decade he has played electric bass for platinum recording artist Charlie Major, and is also a regular on Ian Tamblyn’s bands and records. Along with his impressive resume and credentials playing bass, Kenny has also been playing cello and keyboards for a number of years and is becoming more known in those ventures. You can book Kenny for bass and standup bass, beginner guitar, cello, piano, jazz theory, and is a great teacher for classical players of any level to learn improvisation.

Friday Featured E-Store Item: Earl’s 5th String Suspender Capo Earl's 5th String Suspender Capo

A fantastic alternative to railroad spikes or other fifth string capos, Earl’s 5th string capo wraps around the back of the banjo neck via an elastic strap (aka suspender). It holds on to the fretboard near the 1st string and has a rubberized foot that pins the fifth string down wherever you want it.
