Faculty Spotlight:

Kevin Guarnieri

Millikin is thrilled to have Instructor Kevin Guarnieri oversee Millitrax since 2014 and advise students in the recording studio. Instructor Guarnieri began his professional career at Westlake Audio in Los Angeles in 1999 at the bottom of the ladder looking up. In a few years' time he had elevated his skillset and position far enough to begin working as a freelance recording engineer in Los Angeles & New York. By 2002 he had engineered albums by Whitney Houston, *Nsync, Mariah Carey, Limp Bizkit, The Distillers, Blackalicious, Mick Jagger & Missy Elliott. At this point he devoted most of his time to one client and worked closely with her through 2010. When he left L.A. in 2010 he had been fortunate enough to work on many pop, rock & hip-hop productions, among them: Alanis Morissette, Sting, Eric Clapton, Boyz II Men, Sam Moore, Billy Joel, Michael Bublé, Kelly Clarkson and Travis Tritt. Late in 2010, KG had shifted gears and began teaching his teaching career.
