Kenny Smith

Faculty: General Music & World Percussion


Kenny is a professional percussionist who enjoys sharing the gift of music with everyone. As General Music Instructor here at the Merit School of Music, he looks forward to moving and shaking to the rhythm as students dance to the beat of their own drum. 


Muddy Waters is one of my favorite artists. He learned to play music on a plantation in the south. From that experience, he became one of the world’s most famous blues musicians.
