Kevin Davey

Kevin DaveyKevin Davey began his education at Kwantlen in 1995 and remained a student there for two years, finishing in 1997. He received his Certificate in Music and completed the first year of the diploma program. He gathered enough English and Psych Courses, along with the credits earned from the Kwantlen Music program that Kevin was able to transfer directly into the 3rd year of the Music Therapy program at Capilano University. He completed his Bachelors of Music Therapy degree at Capilano in 2000 and began his career as a Music Therapist. He started in the field with a private practice working with young adults and children with developmental delays. Before long, he was offered a position with Fraser Health working at Heritage Village Residential Care, as well as at the Bradley Centre of Chilliwack General Hospital focusing on seniors with complex care needs.  He later went on to earn his Master’s in Recreation Therapy through the Indiana University and is now the Coordinator of the Recreation Department at Heritage Village.

Kevin is very fortunate to make his living as a musician with his wife and two children in Abbotsford. In his spare time, he also plays in the Vancouver Beatles tribute band, The Fab Fourever, as John Lennon. This band covers the entire career of the Beatles beginning with the Sullivan era music, through the touring years, into Sgt. Pepper era music and ending with the Songs of Abbey Road and Let It Be. They tour Western Canada playing shows to crowds of Beatles fans. The band has also travelled to Hong Kong and was selected as the Canadian representatives in the Beatle Week Festival in Liverpool, England, having the opportunity to play in the famous Cavern Club, as well as other well-known Beatles related venues. Kevin looks fondly back on his days at Kwantlen and credits the Music Program for his success as a Music Therapist and working musician. It was the training he received at KPU that laid the foundation for his continued schooling, helping him achieve his career as a Music Therapist and honing his skills as a musician.
