Gary Rhum

Owner & Founder
Gary Rhum is the owner and founder of Rhum Academy and also the primary music teacher. Although he retired in February of 2020, he is still an inspiration to all of our teachers. Gary has been a performer and professional musician for many years and has been teaching in the Kokomo area for over 20 years.

Gary’s dream was to have a music school with a holistic approach to teaching music; offering not only private and group lessons, but also a performance hall and music store dedicated to helping in the success of local musicians. Gary's main objective is to help his students learn and experience the joy of making music, and to create a “community” of artists and musicians, both young and old, where creativity, expression, and musicianship are encouraged and developed. Rhum Academy continues to thrive because of Gary's legacy of high quality, highly personalized, music instruction.
