I have taught voice lessons for almost 20 years to children and adults of all ages, abilities, and musical tastes. I received my Master of Music degree in Voice Performance from Florida State University, and a degree in English from Knox College. In 2013, I sang as a soprano soloist at Carnegie Hall, as part of a performance of Haydn's "Lord Nelson Mass."

Students have come to me to improve their singing in many different styles, from pop music to musical theater to classical. I have taught experienced musicians as well as people who have never taken a lesson before.

Whether you're looking to improve your karaoke chops, prepare a solo piece for church, or just try something fun and different, I would encourage you to give voice lessons a shot. I truly enjoy teaching and would love to help you achieve your individual vocal goals!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very patient teacher. I use various teaching methods and tailor each lesson to the individual needs of the student. We discuss breath management, the release of unwanted tension, good performance practices, as well as diction and general musical concepts. Studying with me will remind you that singing should be fun, and will boost your confidence and skill level.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My living room studio has a piano and seating for parents who wish to sit in on the lesson. There's also a table in the adjacent kitchen where younger siblings can do homework. Please bring a notebook or paper to take notes, as well as recording equipment if you wish to record the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
Classical voice is my specialty, but I have worked with students on everything from Metallica to Mozart.

Kim was my singing teacher for a few months before I went to college. As an excellent and knowledgeable singer herself, she always had the right input and guidance on anything I wanted to sing. Lessons felt self guided and relaxed, which helped me come out of my shell to do my own performances.

Highly recommended! The singing and performance instruction I have received has exceeded my expectations. Kim is an amazing vocal coach and positively encouraging. I've learned so much about my voice, stage presence and importance of telling a story. Whatever your genre Kim makes music fun. Pure joy!

Both of my daughters, one of which has Asperger's, really enjoyed taking singing lessons with Kimberly over the past one and one-half years, and I would highly recommend her. They each received individualized lessons plus were provided immediate feedback and encouragement. I never heard a "do I have to go" when it came time for their lessons which says allot, especially in the summer when I often hear this about other things.

Excited for more lessons

I still have more questions but in my 3 lessons so far with Kim she has had all the answers. She has provided a lot of good technique and exercises for my daily regimen and I have had people tell me that my singing sounds a lot better at shows I have done since. I know that it is because of what I've gone over with Kim.

Wonderful Experience

I needed to brush up on my vocals for church and Kimberly has demonstrated patience, kindness and instructive and well as constructive advise for improving my skills. I did not realize how some simple techniques can take an OK vocalist to such higher levels. Kim is truly a professional with a good heart.

Moving along

The girls and I really enjoy working with Kim. Her home is so relaxing and warm. It matches her personality. The girls feel very comfortable working with her. She's always able to pinpoint exactly what the girls need to do to improve. Whether it's breathing at a certain point, checking posture or visualizing, she always makes just the right suggestion at just the right time. So glad we found her!
