Private Violin Teacher

I have more than 10 years of experience in teaching private and group violin and chamber music lessons. I combine different pedagogic methods to adapt to each student's learning necessities and experience.
I teach from very beginners to advance students and I can target specific goals from just learning the instrument as a hobby to prepare for an audition.
I like to complement the violin lessons with music theory and basic knowledge of music history. I like to follow the learning paths of european music conservatories since I learn myself in one.
I currently hold the position of violin teacher in the string program at Carrollton School of the sacred heart.

Wonderful teacher. She has demonstrated great patience with our 3 year old son. The first few lessons were focused on building a base to play the violin and creating a desire to play it. Our son adores her and she is fantastic. Such a lucky find.

Recently graduated from Juilliard, I've been teaching violin and viola for five years, and welcome students of all levels and ages. My background is firmly classical, but additionally I also love fiddle music and give students songs from many genres to learn, arranging upon request. I'm currently a doctoral student at USC, and I work part-time locally as a violinist in the YMF Debut Orchestra. I am also glad to help students with recording, video editing and social media.

I really appreciated Alexander teaching me violin. He was basically my first instructor and he was always patient and motivating. He accommodated my unique needs as an adult beginner and brought me far in a short time. He was a little challenged to balance teaching with his heavy school load, but I appreciated his willingness to take the time to teach and help others.

Online Violin Teacher

I am an experienced violinist and violist and music educator, who loves working with adult beginners. I have been teaching for over 20 years, and performing professionally for over 30 years. Are you an adult who has always wanted to play the violin but was never able to? Were you told you were too old or that it was too late? Maybe you want to revisit the instrument you gave up as a youngster. I can help you get back on track. I can give you the skills and confidence you will need to accomplish your goals. It's never too late!

I am also gifted in strengthening the skills of those who have already had some experience playing violin and/or viola, but would like to improve, no matter your age. I can help young students prepare for all state and all county competitions. My lessons are laid back, personable, and enjoyable.

About Kimberly

I am active as a music educator, having taught violin, viola, and music both privately and in the classroom. I have been a member of the National Association for Music Education and the American String Teachers Association. I am known for my gentle and encouraging way of instructing my students, ye

Kimberly is patient!! Gives clear instruction which immediately improves my playing. I am so happy with my choice of instructor!
Kent Looney
Kimberly Simkins has been a wonderful instructor for my daughter, as she works to improve her Viola playing. She is very interactive with my daughter and provides good feedback for my daughter's Viola playing.

I have been happy with this instruction and I hope others have a chance to see how personable and skilled she is.
Elyssa
Mrs. Simpkins is a great teacher and instructor and knows exactly how to make great players. I have Dyslexia and signed up for lessons after playing for a few years. Mrs. Simpkins knows exactly how to teach me and has shaped me into a great player. If you are wanting to learn to play Violin or Viola, or want to improve she is the teacher to go to. She is through, and has a great ability to shape amazing players. She got me into senior clinic and in the last concert I was placed 3rd chair mainly because of her instruction. I hope to continue lessons with her for the next year until I graduate. Although she has not been my teacher for all 9 years I have been playing, she has been my teacher for the past 4 years and I have loved having her teach me during every lesson. Having Mrs. Simpkins as your teacher, will make your playing improve significantly. I highly recommend her to everyone!

"Mr. Mark is an amazing teacher who is very accommodating and so relaxed when he teaches that won't make a student be intimidated at all. I can see that my daughter is very comfortable with him during the lessons especially with sharing some ideas and thoughts for her improvement in playing her violin. After just a few sessions, my daughter already told me that she became more confident in playing with the orchestra in school. She said that Mr. Mark knows what he is talking about. 😊👍"
