Kimberly was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. After starting the flute and piano at the age of 8, she knew she had found something she loved and wanted in her life forever. At age 12, she added the saxophone and clarinet to her repertoire of instruments. After completing her Bachelors degree in Flute Performance at the University of Arizona she moved to Los Angeles to work on her Masters degree at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). There was where she fell in love with contemporary music and has devoted her life to sharing her love for it with others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

I've been teaching clarinet for 20 years and my students have gone on to the State level Band Auditions and won multiple times. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to make a decent sound, play scales, arpeggios and simple tunes, and as time goes on you'll be able to play popular tunes solo and with accompaniment of piano or band. I specialize in classical, jazz and klezmer style, typically use best published books, and have the renovated, quiet and spacious studio, music stands, audio equipment. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Our 12-year old son has been learning clarinet from Mr. Dimitry for about a year now and we highly recommend him to prospective students for his deep music knowledge, rich clarinet performance experience and above all, just being a great clarinet teacher.

In a year's time with Mr. Dimitry, our son's progress has been very impressive. After our son started lessons with Mr. Dimitry, it quickly became apparent that Mr. Dimitry is a very experienced teacher for young musicians. He engages our son effectively to keep him interested in music and clarinet while at the same time sets high expectations for him. Our son always looks forward to clarinet lessons and also is motivated to practice pieces at home.

Mr. Dimitry not only teaches sound clarinet skills, but also emphasizes the importance of playing music the right way, that is to tell stories and express feelings through music rather than to play music like a technician. Although it is difficult for a young musician to fully appreciate this concept, it does go a long way in preparing him to become a really good musician in the long run.

Mr. Dimitry is very polite, pleasant and professional. We recommend him without any reservation.

My 7 year old son has been taking recorder lessons from Dimitry for almost 1 year now. Dimitry is very patient, encouraging, and enganging - considering that my son is on the younger side. Dimitry provides music instruction that is appropriate age and level wise, so my son feels accomplished and challenged at the same time.
We plan to continue with Dimitry and hopefully advance to the clarinet once his fingers can cover the clarinet holes and he has learned more music theory. My son looks forward to his music lessons. We are very pleased with his musical instruction.

Incredibly amiable, professional, and talented as a teacher.

As a senior in high school now graduating and transferring into college, I started my lessons with Dimitry in December last year and had to end this summer at the end of the music school's program. Even though my time learning the saxophone was short, Dimitry used my past musical experience to help guide me through the instrument. His lessons did not feel long in any sense of the word, and in fact some two-hour lessons I took to make up missed weeks blew by, as I was constantly engaged by his teachings. During my studies with him I found myself in the presence of a true musician, and this was only further driven home when I saw him play in the Hanover Wind Symphony at the Morristown Community Theater with Stanley Drucker. I would highly recommend Dimitry as an instructor for a student at any level.

Lessons depend on the desired style. Traditional jazz, like Dixieland has different requirements than does symphonic band. But foundation work will include fingering, scale and interval work, and breath control

About Dave
I teach all ages and skill levels to play saxophone or clarinet. I cover many styles, from concert band, to jazz, blues, soul, and R&B. I am experienced with preschoolers to middle school-age children, high school and college ages, nervous adult beginners, and special needs students.

I recommend the following lesson structure:
• First-time beginners: one 30-minute lesson per week
• Older beginners to intermediate students: one 45 minute lesson per week
• Advanced students: 60 minutes once each week

My approach to lessons is to support a competition-free environment where every level of player can feel comfortable, have fun, and make fast and steady progress. Students are also encouraged to participate in all-ages jam sessions, and at our recitals. We just held our winter recital at the Grossmont Gardens senior living facility.


I work from my home studio on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Centrally located in La Mesa, my studio is just a few minutes east of Qualcomm Stadium. Plenty of free parking, and parents are encouraged to sit in during lessons.

I can also help you with referrals for instrument repair and maintenance, reed and mouthpiece upgrades, and course materials.

My own teaching experience includes private post-secondary, SDSU’s College of Extended Studies, and I’ve facilitated and run woodwind master classes at Grossmont and Valhalla High Schools.

On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, I am available to teach in the following areas: Granite Hills, Del Cerro, Rancho San Diego, Mt. Helix, Santee, Kensington, La Jolla, and Scripps Poway Parkway.

In 3rd grade I began piano lessons and learned to play the recorder. I finally made it to band in 7th grade playing French horn, switched to saxophone in 8th grade and haven't stopped adding instruments to my repertoire: French horn (yes, I went back!), clarinet, baritone are just a few of my favorites besides the SAX! 

My first experience with clarinet was after my senior year in high school. A friend of mine loaned me her 2nd clarinet and I taught myself to play it. That summer I also got to play a bass clarinet in the University of Texas summer band-what fun!

Though I did not get a degree in music, my passion has educated me greatly and continues to do so. I have been involved in music education for the last 7 years as an assistant director or director of homeschool bands in the Colorado Springs area. Along with band, I currently teach general music and recorder at homeschool co ops.

About Marsha
Two of the most interesting types of classes that I like to teach are languages and music, because you can actually do something with them right now! Don’t think I’m saying that math and science are second rate or unnecessary-not me, I love learning all subjects, they really do fit together well.

I grew up around Spanish and music and have never stopped loving them.

Spanish has been in my ears since I was a newborn, my nanny spoke nothing but Spanish to me for the first 18 months of my life. When I did learn to speak, I spoke nothing but English to her-what a stinker I was. She was a member of my extended family, so she wasn’t the only one I heard speak Spanish. Apparently, I understood everything but was too stubborn to use anything but English…well, I am not that way any more.

I've been playing music for 94.444% of my life,
and that number just keeps getting higher. I was introduced to instrumental music at the young age of 3 when my parents bought me a Magnus Chord Organ. I learned how to read written music with the help of my mom and was exposed to many genres by my music loving papa.
