Larry Kent
Pronouns: he/him/his
Instruments: Piano
Styles: Classical, Rock, Blues


I grew up in Albemarle County, Virginia, and there was always music in the house. I started piano lessons at age 8, and began playing guitar at age 10. After playing in lots of rock bands (high school) and classical music making (college, grad schools, and professionally), I returned to central Virginia in 2017 and have been playing keys, guitar, and bass with several groups since then. I started teaching at The Front Porch in 2018.


I heard the Beatles in person, so not much will ever compare with that. Now, I just want to play, teach, and write more music.
“Larry is a patient and kind teacher. His knowledge is vast and he is an excellent communicator. I love taking my lessons from him and will continue doing so, pandemic or not, for the foreseeable future.”
