In addition to concertizing, Dexter Kennedy currently serves on the music faculty of the College of Wooster as Instructor of Organ and Harpsichord.

He has a degree from Oberlin Conservatory in 2012, a Master of Music from Yale in 2014, and an Artist Diploma from Oberlin in 2016. A devoted church musician, Kennedy currently serves as the Assistant Organist of Christ Church Grosse Pointe (Michigan) where he serves as the principal organist for all choral services and concerts and directs the training of the novice boy and girl choristers.
