I have almost 20 years of music performance. I've sung in nearly every state in the US and have been on the stage since I was 7 years old. My goal is to show you how to get comfortable on stage and to let your talent shine. Whether you are singing, playing an instrument, or both I'll teach you how to own that stage.

About Kimberly C.

Hello! My name is Kimberly and I teach:
-Guitar
-Piano
-Vocals
-Acting
-Ukulele


As a participant in All State choir in high school, the only female in the U-46 district to make District 9 state Jazz choir, and the recipient of over 20 awards for singing, I'm at a place where I can use my experiences to help you start your journey!
I've been singing and playing my instruments for all of my life. My talents have taken me across the United States and back, even singing the National Anthem on Fox for the World's Strongest Man competition.
Having a passion for music, I picked up piano and guitar at a young age and studied both for years, finding new ways of combining the two with voice and also being able to play them separately or simply use them for songwriting.
Whether you're interested in playing piano, guitar, singing, or doing a combination, we will find your music genre where your passion lies and take it to new levels. I can coach you on your stage performance or even help prepare you for choral/band concerts in school.
For my adult students I can help take your gift to new levels, making it easier for you to perform with confidence and do what you've always wanted to do musically.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are customized to the student's age, instrument, and level of interest. I combine early education practices with activities that go beyond just trial and error on instruments and give student's a chance to turn lessons into a fun game. With my methods students also develop a level of confidence that enables them to begin performing for friends and family. I have seen many young vocalists into elite choral groups through their schools and cities. One of my specialties is preparing students for auditions and 9/10 times they make it into the group they were auditioning for or won the solo in their group!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in working with kids. My combination of fun activities combined with an early education approach to teaching result in students who really enjoy the lessons and truly learn something at an age when it's so crucial to introduce the arts.

I love it, She doesn't judge and it's ok that I had a wall up with her because I was nervous. Slowly I began to ger more comfortable and gained confidence. I learned new things from her. Kimberly is nice and amazing that she knows what she is doing.

Kimberly is very knowledgeable and I feel like she is going to help me achieve my goals for myself as a singer after many years of collected dust on the vocal chords. I learned some new things that can help me within the first 10 minutes of my first lesson. Highly recommend this teacher!

Kimberly is the best teacher I've ever had. Growing up in Barrington, we had a wide variety of private tutors and vocal trainers. My mother once put me up for private sessions for three months before my school musical. I thought I had received good training. Thought. My mother referred me to Kimberly after hearing her sing at a venue. I perused some of her videos and I must say that I was highly impressed. I signed up for a lesson, and my vocal range increased magnanimously! I am now able to sing in octaves in which I previously was unaware existed. My range is now more comfortable than my boat shoes whilst I cigar with the boys. I would recommend Kimberly to the highest degree possible and then some. If you don't know Kimberly, you are nowhere near your potential in vocals, guitar, or even life.

Wonderful Teacher!

Hi I am Matt Ellis and I have been taking lessons with Kimberly for about 5 months.My singing ability has improved incredibly.When you sit in on a lessons with Kimberly she analyzes your voice very carefully and matches exercises to what she thinks is best for you.Personally I have had trouble with sustaining my voice for long periods of time due to vocal damage.I noticed right away after my first couple of lessons my voice just seemed healthier and in better shape with the exercises we did.Now my voice sustains better than ever!With a larger range and I now have a ear for Harmony as well. I would suggest Kimberly to anyone who wants to improve there voice and learn in a very comfortable environment.Within the first 10 minutes of my first lesson I was totally comfortable to just let loose and sing!Without being worried about my tone because she creates a very safe atmosphere for improvement.So If your looking for great lessons and a great teacher GO TO KIMBERLEY!
