Teaching since:
March 2005

I love teaching music and helping students to find a passion for learning an instrument. I have experience as a music teacher in K-12 classrooms and also teaching private lessons to people of all ages. I have been playing piano since I was 5 years old and have been singing long before that. I attended college for piano performance and then switched my major to Choral/General Music Education. Since graduating, I have consistently taught private lessons to students of all ages. In addition to being a music teacher, I have an MA in Counseling Psychology with a focus on Child Development and feel equipped to work with students with special needs.

Kim is fun, friendly and highly skilled! She is great with children and adults alike. She caters to the student’s needs and makes learning to play piano a positive experience. We loved having her in our house, and it was easy to change-up the schedule as we needed it! Kim is a wonderful teacher and mentor for any student!
