My name is Kimberly Jones, I’m a piano teacher with 7 years of teaching experience, and I represent a new generation of piano teachers around the world committed to providing a creative and enjoyable musical education.
My aim is to encourage students to build a love and appreciation for music, to be excited about learning and able to express their own creativity – definitely no sitting there with a ruler waiting for a student to make a mistake, as is the experience for many students of previous generations! Not only will my students become competent players,
To provide top quality lessons, professional development is my priority. When I’m not teaching I am preparing new games and activities for my students, researching teaching methods, doing courses on various aspects of musical education, and spending time improving my own playing. In 2013 I passed my Grade 8 Piano Exam with distinction, and in 2014 I passed my ATCL piano teaching diploma. I’m currently working on completing my ATCL performance diploma in 2020.
I am also very involved in Marlborough’s musical community, being on the committee for TEMPO (Today’s Emerging Musicians Performing Onstage), and often playing for various community groups. I encourage my students to perform on a regular basis, both to develop their own confidence and to bring joy to the community.
At Kimberly’s Piano Room, I offer an all-inclusive yearly membership, with a flat monthly fee to keep things simple. Included are weekly private lessons and buddy lessons, group lessons, performance opportunities, studio-wide themes and challenges, and all necessary books and materials provided by me.
