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.
