After receiving his M.M. from the Combs College of Music, he expanded his base in music education by teaching and developing curricula at Drexel University, The University of the Arts and Montgomery County Community College.
Developing a niche market, Kaminsky created and is president of Kydd Products, Inc., manufacturer of Kydd Basses, a compact, electric upright bass. Kydd basses are distributed worldwide and are used by such bassists as Stanley Banks (w/George Benson), Fernando Saunders (w/Lou Reed) and Oteil Burbridge (w/The Allman Brothers Band).
Bringing together his innovations and expertise with manufacturing, production, and education, Kaminsky created the portable Kydd Lab and the Kydd Sound Reflector for grand pianos.
His love of Middle Eastern music influenced him to create The Spice Route Ensemble, which is a group comprised of Arabs and Jews that lead residencies involving cultural cooperation through music.
Bruce Kaminsky is married to theatrical costumer, Lorraine Anderson and has two children, Jacob and Aviva. Bruce rides a 1982 Yamaha Virago 920 with a full touring kit.
