Kimberly is a PROFESSIONAL MUSICIAN!
Kimberly’s professionalism extends to her way of doing business too. She has well thought out, reasonable rates and payment plans. Her online business is straightforward and user friendly.
Being one of her Online students (I live in Australia) she and I depend on Skype technology for our lessons. She is IT savvy. I am not saying she is a computer whiz…(maybe she is) but she has the right equipment for the job of online teaching and can give basic advice to those who want to join her online. She has students from as far away as Japan I think. So the technology works.
Kimberly is a GREAT MUSICIAN!
Notice I said Musician not just a Great guitar player
If you have been trying to find a music teacher you know that great guitar players do not necessarily make great guitar teachers.
Kimberly is BOTH!!
Her Knowledge and Experience as a Musician spans Jazz, Blues, Fusion and Classical genres.
Having all that knowledge and chops you might think she has an ego the size of the empire state building! She doesn’t. In fact there are many lessons between she and I where she didn’t even pick up the guitar. If you are like me you may have gone into many a guitar store and asked to play a cool guitar. The girl comes over and takes it off the wall for you and plugs it in…but before she hands it to you plays some wild riff 8 bars long and THEN gives you the guitar. I just don’t like that kind of showing off….Kimberly doesn’t show off. Stevie Ray Vaughn said something about his brother Jimmie Vaughn, “When I play I play 90% of what I know; when Jimmie plays he plays 10% of what he knows”. That’s Kimberly….from Blues, Metal, Classical she has the chops but doesn’t shove them down your throat but if you need them …she has them!
Kimberly is very very busy. But when you are with her she is not thinking about her next lesson she is focussed on you.
Kimberly understands Music and how to put students and music together.
The guitar is her main instrument but Kimberly can play and teach several instruments including the drums.
Kimberly is ALWAYS practicing and expanding her experience of Music she is not just a country player or a snobby jazz player.
Kimberly is a self-proclaimed overachiever. That means that even though Kimberly is very very talented she has had to work through musical concepts herself (they didn’t come easy). This is a big plus for students because Kimberly can totally relate to people who are learning. No matter what level of musicianship you are at Kimberly understands and supports your struggles and emphasises your triumphs. Plus she welcomes the sceptical student, “Ok Kimberly why in gods name do I need to learn this??”
I am a slow learner, an overachiever and generally muddle headed. Musical concepts don’t come easily to me at times. I memorise things slowly and get confused and lose focus easily due to my ADD. Many teachers I have had in the past would get frustrated with me. Kimberly just smiles or laughs WITH me and backs up and takes another approach. Kimberly has a variety of tools at her disposal for teaching the same concepts. What this means for students is that she is very adaptable to personal needs, attitudes and ways of learning. If I am not getting something she is trying to get across she dips into her chops bag and pulls out another approach….amazing. If I need her to repeat an explanation 5 times she will do so with a smile on her face…really.
And what is really cool about her is her smile. Kimberly actually smiles at you and makes you feel special and understood.
Kimberly is a wise teacher. More wise than her years. So wise that she knows when NOT TO TEACH!! She wont let you flounder or get stressed. As she gets to know you as a student she knows when you are working something through out loud or in your head and she will just be SILENT. That is a very profound gift of a GREAT TEACHER…appropriate SILENCE.
Kimberly is not only a great music teacher and player Kimberly is a Great PERSON!!
I am a very very discerning person when it comes to friendships and close personal relationships. I can tell you without a doubt I like being in her presence.
Kimberly is a Professional but with a very casual laid back attitude. She is not only inspiring but Kimberly is fun to be around. Which makes each lesson more of a sharing of knowledge time rather than a chugging through gruelling wrote rudiments time.
I am really stoked that Kimberly is not only my music teacher but Kimberly is my FRIEND.
I have been taking lessons from her for 10 months now and every Saturday I am excited to see her and talk to her.
If you have had difficulty finding a music teacher I definitely recommend you give Kimberly a try!!
Did I say Kimberly is awesome!!
