Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Ken studied trumpet with Vince DiMartino at the University of Kentucky. Upon graduating with an education degree, he found that performing and manufacturing were more to his interest. He has been with Warburton Music Products since 1986 and is currently the Vice President of the company. His duties include traveling to shows and conventions, working one-on one with brass players, and some serious hands-on work in the manufacturing end. He is the inventor of the P.E.T.E. isometric exerciser which is being used by over 50,000 brass players worldwide.
His experience includes touring with many prominent acts such as Engelbert Humperdinck, Al Martino, Harry James Orchestra, Maureen McGovern and Patty Page.
Ken can often be heard with bands such as the Frank Vardaros Jazz Orchestra, Phoenix Jazz Orchestra, Trumpet Blues, Space Coast Symphony Jazz Orchestra, and the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Big Band.
