Well hello there, I'm Kevin Dennis and I teach Band, Jazz Band, Guitar, and Piano.

I was raised in Richmond, Virginia and attended Lloyd C. Bird High School in Chester, VA where I graduated in 2010. I was a member of the Skyhawks Marching Band for 4 years and Tuba Section leader my senior year. I was invited to and participated in the Central Virginia Wind Symphony for 2 years while in High School. I attended the Virginia Tech Honor Band in 2008, University of Virginia Marching Honor Band in 2009 and participated in district band for 3 years.

I served an ecclesiastical mission for my church to Arcadia, California for 2 years, speaking Spanish.

When I returned from California, I went to BYU-Idaho from 2014 to 2019 (with a 1 year break in 2016) and graduated with my degree of Bachelor of Music Education. I student-taught under John A. Matthews II at Copper Hills High School in the fall of 2019. I was a long term substitute at West Hills Middle School in West Jordan for the Spring of 2020. In the fall of 2020 I started my professional teaching career at Juab High School teaching Band, Jazz Band, Orchestra, Guitar, and a Music history course. When the chance to teach at Payson High opened up in 2022, I jumped at the opportunity. And I have been here at PHS ever since.

My wife Christiana and I have 3 children. We live in Santaquin and have 3 cats named Hector, Lady, and Gustav. We enjoy doing puzzles while watching movies with our children. In my free time, I have picked up Disc Golf as a hobby, and play as often as possible.
