The artist is internationally renowned as a teacher of his instrument. He holds master classes each year at the Summer Academy for Organists in Haarlem (since 1972 succeeding Gustav Leonhardt at his invitation), and also in the cities of Antwerp, Venice, and Lurs, France. His numerous editions of harpsichord music have received universal acclaim and are used widely in music schools the world over.
The Canadian Music Council, at its meeting in August 1978, elected Kenneth Gilbert to receive its distinguished "Artist of the Year" award as "a Canadian performer who has particu?larly distinguished himself during the preceding year ... an artist of international repute in demand throughout the world, a guest professor at the most important institutions, a researcher responsible for the prestigious editions of Couperin, Rameau, Scarlatti, and Bach, as well as the extraordinary recording artist of the complete works of Rameau for which he is also awarded one of the Canadian Music Council's Grand Prix du Disque."
