Hello! I started my love of music at a young age with my family playing and singing at family functions. That turned into a wanting to learn how to play the flute and I went up through high school with that instrument. After high school I branched out more into vocal performance. After that I joined a traveling performance group. No not the circus! I joined Drum and Bugle Corp. They taught be how to play the Baritone and I marched a straight Baritone. I then learned the Mellophone and marched that after. Since I had experience with Drum Corp Marching I taught over 10 different marching programs over many different years. I graduated from College with my Bachelors in Music Education and was a music director until I had my children and decided to give up regular teaching. After all of the years I spent honing my craft I decided to continue giving lessons. I have the most experience with Flute, but can teach many other instruments: flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone/euphonium, piano.
I have worked with many different age groups and levels of ability. I am happy to help you learn to have fun and "play" your instrument!
Mrs. Bemus provides a calm nurturing approach to teaching. She saw potential in me, and helped inspire me to become a future educator myself.

Kim is a fantastic instructor! She is experienced, encouraging, and patient with students as they are learning. She helped me prepare for solo and ensemble, and supported me throughout the process. I highly recommend choosing Kim as your instructor.
I took lessons with Mrs.Bemus from 2008-2010. I also had her as my elementary band teacher. Before she started working with me, I had no experience with the saxophone. Working with her really helped me not only musically, but also confidence wise. Kim Bemus is not only super encouraging but will work with you at whatever speed you need to go in order to get better. If it wasn’t for her mentoring and patience, I would’ve never continued playing the saxophone or became the musician I am today. If I had to suggest someone to do tutoring with on saxophone - or any instrument, I should say - I would suggest her in a heartbeat.Show More
