Overview

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. After completing her Masters degree in Flute Performance at CalArts, she went on to pursue a Doctorate in Contemporary Flute Performance at the University of California, San Diego. Kimberly now resides in Los Angeles and plays with many groups throughout the city.

We've had 3 lessons so far with our 10yrs old with no experience with flute. Kim is amazing in all restrospect. We initially intended to just try out a few lessons. But we are continuing. We highly recommend her.

You cannot ask for a more knowledgable and encouraging flute instructor. My daughter left the first lesson feeling confident and inspired.
