img_0667Kale has been teaching music to students ages 3-76 in the Philadelphia area since 2006. He has two bachelors degrees in Music from Temple University; one in Classical Guitar Performance, the other in Music Theory. He was the only undergraduate to have their paper accepted for presentation for the Music Theory Society of the Mid-Atlantic’s 2010 annual conference; Kale’s paper was titled “The Consequences of Cadential Failure and Virtuosic Rhetoric in Liszt’s B-Minor Sonata”.

After graduation, he continued his classical guitar studies with world-renowned lute and classical guitar teacher Patrick O’Brien. Kale has taken training for Suzuki Guitar instruction under David Madsen and Andrea Cannon. He has taken training for Suzuki Early-Childhood Music Education under Wan-Tsai Chen.  He has hitch-hiked from Colorado to Philly in 2 days, performed on the side of a 14,000 ft. mountain at 2:00 am for a 24-hour mountain bike race, and sailed on a German tall-ship in the North Sea . Seeing children and adults grow, develop, and expand their capabilities is one of the most rewarding parts of teaching lessons for Kale.
