He is professional and patient yet he meets you where you are. I had played piano many years ago and he quickly assessed where I am today and asked what I wanted to accomplish at this point. He showed me things that I was never taught all those years ago. He is kind and so easy to work with. Can't say enough about him. Wasn't sure if I could play again after so many years. I have had hand surgery and can't wait to continue my lessons. He showed me that I can. Great for this old lady, I mean elderly person.

I specialize in providing a great foundation for learning the instrument. Too many students, new to the guitar, get frustrated and quit after just a few lessons, because it falls short of their expectations and they find they are not progressing. I make certain to keep the enthusiasm intact through the entire learning process by making sure the student is actually playing the instrument. I like to think of my method as "Fast Track to Playing Guitar"; my goal is to keep the student's interest in the instrument at a sustained level while they are grasping the fundamentals. Because I teach Voice as well, and have made a living accompanying myself on the guitar, I can combine those attributes for my students, if they desire to accompany themselves while singing. I find that many of my students really enjoy that option, and I have uncovered many a student who had never thought of themselves as a vocalist, singing and playing with astounding results... My success rate of having my students ...

Glenn is amazing! He listened to me sing a few songs and gave me two tips that completely improved my vocal performance! Highly, highly recommended if you want to sing and perform better, and if you truly want to profoundly impact the listener to a higher degree !

"It’s true what the other reviews say about her kindness and patience. Lenna is a warm, thoughtful and generous human being. She also happens to be a gifted teacher and skilled cellist. She is able to correct tiny details in my playing that make a huge difference in sound. Better yet, she approaches it in a way that I might be able to make those corrections for myself, by asking me what I heard first and listening to my observations. Also her approach to practice and playfulness is something I aim to use in many aspects of my life."

"First off Kimberly is AWESOME. Did I say Kimberly is AWESOME! Just making sure I said Kimberly is AWESOME.

Kimberly is a PROFESSIONAL MUSICIAN!

Teaching is her profession. She is devoted to it. She has chosen to be a teacher. She isn’t teaching because she isn’t good enuf to make money another way. She does it because she enjoys passing on her music experience and knowledge while giving her stability and a life in music too. This means she is totally professional. She shows up on time. She is prepared, communicative and focussed on you the student.

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!!
