Kimberly Denney has dedicated her entire adult life to teaching music to kids. After receiving her BA in music education and MA in education administration, Kimberly taught music and band in public schools for 21 years. Now she teaches Kindermusik to families in Dayton and Cincinnati.
At her school, Kimberly and her team of instructors lead children from newborns to 7-year-olds in playful music classes with the goal of helping kids develop into great learners—not necessarily the next Mozart. Children sing, dance, and play age-appropriate instruments, all while developing a variety of skills in language, literacy, socialization, and problem solving, as well as improving their self-esteem. Parents and children receive Kindermusik@home materials that include a variety of activities to continue learning at home between weekly classes.
Dayton and Northmont Music Lessons' instructors teach every aspect of music, from composition and theory to improvisational group classes. Mostly, they work one-on-one with students ages 5 and up, starting with the basics. They teach their charges how to read music and translate the notes on guitars, pianos, ukuleles, saxophones, or even into song. Students get the chance to compose their own pieces in comprehensive song-writing sessions. They can also try their hand at forming impromptu bands in classes such as Thursday afternoon's weekly Jazz Lab Band, which requires students to already possess some skill and also a lab coat.
