Kirk has performed throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan since the mid 80's as a soloist and ensemble member. In concert and on recordings these days, he is mainly heard along with John McClellan as the internationally acclaimed Hanser-McClellan Guitar Duo.

The HMGD's most recent feature recording,"La Vida Breve", was called "...passionate, beautiful...guitar playing at its highest order" by Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine (U.S.) and Classical Guitar Magazine in the U.K. proclaimed its "sheer swagger & verve." They have also recorded and/or performed with many of today's guitar luminaries such as Tommy Emmanuel, Frank Vignola, Ray Flacke and many, many others.

Kirk moved to St. Louis in 1996 with his four children. He currently teaches for several colleges and universities such as Washington University, arranges music for events and publications, and acts as director for both the Childbloom Guitar Program and the St. Louis Academy for Guitar. Locally, Kirk performs regularly as an on-call guitarist with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and the Muny, as well as weddings and corporate events.

As a teacher, Kirk has been recognized with several awards including Childbloom's Outstanding National Program of the Year (twice!) and National Teacher of the Year. He teaches master classes while on the road performing, and has taught at many prestigious schools including the Paris Conservatory.
