About Kirby D T.

Hi! I’m Kirby. Jesus has tremendously blessed me with musical abilities. I play bass, keyboards, guitar, I sing and I record also; to the glory of His name. I’m an experienced music teacher of 20+ years available for eager students of all experience levels, age 7 and older! My lessons are structured so students learn while also building a strong foundation of executable skills. I specialize in many sub-genres of gospel music (both old + new School & Caribbean styles too) including technique, ear-training, and sight-reading. I typically use specific methods from Hal Leonard & Alfred books. I would love to help you prepare to serve in music ministry at your local church. I usually have my instrument, a metronome, a tuner, sheet music and/or chord charts, reference music, and other tools during lessons.  Send me a message. I’d love to help you climb higher on your journey!

Learning how to the bass was something I never thought I could accomplish, my fingers would hurt and I didn’t believe in myself. But having a great patient teacher like Mr. Kirby made everything is better, I was able to learn the key scales and got the confidence to be able to play the bass to any music also, he just Dosent teach you how to play, he teaches you to know what your playing so you are never lost when playing music. Overall the KIRBY experience is the best way to learn how to play ANY INSTRUMENT.

Kirby D. Trim is one of the finest music teachers I have encountered who is able to help students - from the novice to the enthusiast to identify and develop their unique gifts and convey the power of music to develop character and the ability to weave its application in the everyday aspects of life.
More than just a teacher of music, Kirby takes time to help his students identify their purpose and fulfill their God given potential and is flexible to accommodate the dynamics and demands of working families and ever-changing schedules.
Kirby is someone who cares for every student and their success. A first-class teacher , that prays with the student before the lessons and incomparable among his peers in developing his students.

Mr Trim teaching is very positive and encouraging to me. He is a patient and interesting teacher at assessing my ability, interest and adjusting his lessons accordingly. Kirby is a gifted musician and a God fearing man and I have learned alot from him. When I first told Mr Trim my passion for playing the bass guitar, he made it his duty that I learned in the pace that I am comfortable with. If you want a excellent music teacher, I recommend Mr Kirby D Trim, you won't regret it.

I looked forward to going to classes every week. He made the material user-friendly & was very patient as I had no prior knowledge of playing keys. I didn't just gain the knowledge I need to be an excellent player, but he also imparted a desire for playing God's instruments in the right spirit. I will never forget Ephesians 5:19, I was encouraged to study one verse pertaining to music weekly.

You have to experience it for yourself! You owe it to yourself!

One of the best guitarist to have for a teacher. He really wants you to understand music theory as well as play by ear. The amount of experience he has in the field of the music is incredible. He is a phenomenal mentor who will continue to motivate and challenge his students. Will forever be grateful for his role in me learning how to play the guitar.

Mr.k is an amazing, humble and patient instructor. He strives consistently to keep pushing his students towards greatness even if he has to apply a little seriousness in order for us to learn. He doesn't just believe in helping you play instruments, but to turn you into MUSICIANS! Keep playing for jesus!

I once asked someone to give me some bass lessons and he directed me to Kirby. I must say from my first lesson I was not only impressed by his teaching techniques but the way he made us comfortable even in our very novice state. He’s not only my teacher but have now become a dear friend.

I am blessed to have a piano teacher like Kirby D. Trim. I always enjoy his lessons and the way he interacts with his students before and during each lesson. Before we start a lesson we pray and we are giving the opportunity to show him wherever new skills we picked up after the last lesson. I like the way he teaches. It's a very hands on lesson. If you don't quite understand he is very willing to go over it more than once to make sure you are able to play what he is showing you. I think Kirby D. Trim is an excellent teacher. If you are considering taking his class you won't be disappointed.
