Teachers at the Old Town School

Kevin Farris


Kevin is a full time “musician-preneur” which is a quirky way of saying he has started his own children’s music movement entitle, Kevin Farris and The Infinite Possibilities.

Kevin travels all over the midwest with his story music cartoon entitled, “Prince K’s Rock n’ Roll Adventure” reaching audiences in libraries, schools, park districts, and social events. The story itself aims to inspire kids to stay connected to their creativity and self expression. He’s worked with organizations like Urban Gateways in Chicago to keep arts in urban schools and in schools, in general. On top of these travels and adventures, he works as a music specialist in preschools across the Chicagoland area.

Previously, Kevin worked in special education at Westgate Elementary School. Westgate is a lighthouse school for the FranklinCovey Leader in Me Program. The program is based on the book, “The Seven Habits of Happy Kids”. Kevin wrote a kids’ album, commissioned by FranklinCovey, inspired by the seven habits, and travels around the nation performing at Leader in Me Schools.

Being a singer-songwriter (for us adult big kids) has been as much a part of Kevin as the limbs on his body, since he was in seventh grade. He’s toured the Midwest and Canada (accidentally...long story!) in bands and played venues including Metro, House of Blues, Double Door, and Cubby Bear.

Education: Illinois State University
