Hello! My name is Kimberley, and I have been teaching piano in the Gig Harbor area for over 30 years. My mother was a piano teacher and my father was a piano tuner and owned a piano store, so piano is in my blood and I love everything about it!
I am a Gig Harbor native, and grew up taking piano lessons locally. I enjoyed it so much that I always knew that teaching piano was what I wanted to do. I won many awards, contests and scholarships and performed publicly all the way through High School, College and beyond.
Many of my students have also won contests and awards.
I have been involved with the Washington State Music Teachers Association for over 25 years, and have served in our local Gig Harbor chapter as Trio Festival Chair, Recital Chair and also as President for a number of years. My students have participated in all available events, including Music Olympics, Monthly Recitals, Trio Festival, Adjudications, Chapter Play-offs and Scholarship Events.
I teach Classical piano as well as Contemporary styles. I enjoy writing music and playing on a church Worship Team as both Keyboardist and Vocalist. The most exciting event of the year for my students is our annual Recital, where they enjoy sharing their hard-earned talent and skill.
I particularly enjoy cultivating strong relationships with my students. Along with learning the valuable and wonderful skill of playing piano, my students enjoy their lessons and we have a good time together! I have been told many times that my patience and love for my students makes their musical experience a joyful one.
I teach all ages and skill levels. To obtain information on schedules and fees, please send me a quick message and I will be happy to respond immediately.
