Tutor / Composer / Producer / Singer Songwriter
Premium feedback with audio/video demo/explanation
Hi! I am a professional musician, composer and tutor with 20 years actual teaching/mentoring behind me. Teaching and artist development is a deep passion for me, not just a "sideline" job, to "top-up" my other work ;-)
My name is Kevin Edge.
Classically trained on piano from the age of 7, and later complementing this groundwork with studying and playing jazz and other contemporary forms (pop/rock/funk/fusion/electronic/singer-songwriter etc), I have centred my life on the study, creation and performance of music in many different forms: piano, electric/acoustic guitar and clarinet, playing in bands, performing solo, songwriting, composition and production for TV and film/trailer music (including hybrid cinematic/orchestral), electronic music of all kinds, mixing and mastering, along with teaching, offering guidance and mentoring across all of these areas both privately and in college settings, including lecturing at the JMC Academy (counterpart to SAE) in Melbourne, Australia.
I work with clients to develop their mixing, mastering, singing. playing, composition, songwriting, production and applied music theory knowledge/skills, in order to progress their musicianship and empower them on their musical journey, be it as a career, or simply for their own personal creativity/expression etc.
I can guide and feedback across all these areas/layers, and draw links/connections between them, which can provide a powerful springboard for musical development, all in one place. Alternatively the feedback can be very focussed on one particular aspect, as the client wishes.

Clark Beckham's musical journey began when he was 8 years old singing in a gospel trio alongside his mother and father. Simultaneously, he discovered a love for playing musical instruments. Over the years, his passion for both singing and playing instruments has only grown stronger. In 2015, America was captivated by his soulful, bluesy vocals and his extraordinary talents on the piano and guitar during his remarkable run as the Season 14 runner-up on American Idol.
During his time on American Idol, Beckham had the privilege of being mentored by an array of industry greats, including Kelly Clarkson, Scott Borchetta, Nile Rogers, and Jason Derulo, among others. His unforgettable performance alongside Michael McDonald in the show's finale showcased the depth of his musical ability.
Beckham's success didn't stop with the show. He achieved notable acclaim on iTunes, securing a spot on the top 75 charts several times, and twice as the week's highest new entry. Embracing a diverse musical path, he has performed with the prestigious Nashville Symphony and written with renowned artist Brian McKnight. Soon after, he received a Teen Choice award nomination for Music's Next Big Thing, signaling his impact on the industry.
An artist truly committed to his craft, Beckham spent two transformative years under the wing of Quincy Jones' signed to his management company. He has headlined multiple international tours, sharing his love for music to audiences all around the world.
He’s recently been named the Dean of Music at Canada Christian College out of Toronto, Ontario, spearheading the movement for teaching practical knowledge, skill and adoration for music in higher education.
For Clark, music is not merely a career but an inseparable part of his life. To him, music flows as naturally as his own heartbeat, an element of the divine that defines his very soul.
