Kim Stocksdale has been giving music lessons to children for over 10 years. She recently earned her B.S. in Music Education at the University of North Georgia, where she served as Concertmaster of the school’s orchestra. She is a member of the National Association for Music Education, received the Gloria Shott Scholarship, and was recognized on the UNG President’s List.
Kim has been playing violin since she was three years old. Since then she has grown into a very accomplished player, performing at weddings and other formal affairs and with the Simpler Times Bluegrass Band. She is also part of a Chamber Music Club. She has given private violin, cello, and piano lessons and once owned a Kindermusik business.
When Kim is not practicing music, she enjoys spending time with her wonderful husband and five children.

I use a Suzuki-style approach to teaching. In the first few lessons, I introduce the parts of the instrument, how to hold it, and how to produce a good sound. I ask students to listen to and repeat simple rhythm patterns on open strings. The first piece my students can expect to play is Twinkle Twinkle, which can usually be mastered within the first few lessons.
I have a B.S. in Music Education from University of North Georgia.
I charge $25 per half hour for lessons.
Over the years, friends and neighbors would occasionally ask me to teach their children violin, viola, piano, and cello. I decided I wanted to get a degree in Music Education to make sure everything I was teaching was accurate.
I have worked with all levels and ages of students.
