In my lessons I really listen to my students especially when it comes to the type of music that they want to learn. Many times they will bring ideas to me that they have heard or seen. I do insist on reading and using the music as a tool to improve on sight reading, rhythm and other basic studies of music. I try to make it enjoyable and fun and not a stressful experience.

About Kimberly

I began my love for the piano and music at age 9. It has been a huge part of my life ever since. I have a BA in Music Performance and have been teaching and performing for many years and love it! I teach students of all ages and levels which I thoroughly enjoy. I am open to all genres of mu

Three years of working with multiple orchestras and youth summer camps have prepared me to teach students of all ages and experience levels. My lessons involve teaching extensive topics beyond cello fundamentals like aural skills and music theory. Incorporating these aspects of musicianship will reinforce your progression of playing the cello.

"Bill is a fantastic teacher, and has been extremely helpful in coaching me for orchestral auditions, and in working with me on solo repertoire. He has helped me improve my overall trumpet-playing, and is always coming up with new exercises ways to think about practicing technique, especially relating to sound concept and efficient playing. He has presented many different solutions and approaches to tackle any issues I've had with my playing depending on what I'm working on, ranging from articulation to expanding my high range, and everything in between. He sets a great example with his excellent playing as well, and it is useful to hear his musical ideas on the pieces and excerpts that we work on. I would highly recommend getting a lesson with Bill!"

How Can I Make Practicing Violin Scales More Effective?

No matter how much students may groan when it comes to scales, they are very important for all beginners to know, particularly for the violin. Almost all of your knowledge about playing the violin starts with learning how to play scales, from reading sheet music to better understanding the fingerings. Of course, it is not nearly as exciting as playing one of the songs you love, but practicing scales will give you a strong foundation that will help you progress and improve. Violin scales are typ …
