Kenneth Snider graduated from Gordon Bell High School and then was a 1951 graduate of the University of Manitoba; Snider followed this bachelor's degree with a Master's degree from the same school, completed two years later. Prior to his graduation, Snider worked as a bassoonist with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra (from 1948 to 1953) as well as the CBC Concert Orchestra.
