Singing, Clarinet, Music Theory
I have been a teacher for 30 or more years. In addition, I have a masters degree in Library Science. I spent several years as a children's librarian. I am a natural teacher because I have an intuitive understanding of what the student needs.
I have been an early childhood music teacher for 15 years and continue to do so. Many of the techniques used with babies, toddlers and their parents can transfer to older learners. The key is to enable all students to realize their musical potential.
I have been and continue to be an active vocalist and clarinetist and flautist in various jazz ensembles and other performing groups. I love performing. In addition I have my own company called Kim The Music Matchmaker. I offer musical Entertainment for weddings and other private functions. I subcontract many of the finest musicians in the Atlanta area.

Piano, Clarinet, Music Theory
I absolutely love music and teaching piano and clarinet! Having studied both clarinet and piano at the University of Georgia, I am patient and encouraging with both children and adults. I have taught piano in my home for nine years now and have children of my own; so I understand that each person is an individual and has different needs and strengths. I also teach private clarinet lessons and am currently playing with the Gwinnettt Community Band. I enjoy teaching beginning students as well as more advanced students. It is such a huge joy to see a student grow in their understanding of music and gain the confidence that comes with it!
