Kim Dale is not only an extremely talented musician but has an encouraging, patient heart for teaching children. She challenges her students to reach their goals with exciting incentives and opportunities to perform outside her studio. Having taught in a music studio, I was impressed with the selection of music she tailors to each student. My daughter looks forward to each harp lesson and I am pleased with her progress over the past 18 months.Dec 29, 2019Review from GoogleInnovative Music Studio, Valparaiso, Indiana's reply
Thank you for the great review! E. is is doing beautifully on the harp and I'm so excited for the opportunities that she has to play in church and the community already!

My daughter has been taking lessons at Innovative Music Studio for over three years now. Kim is a great teacher, she customized her teaching to the childs learning style and keeps my daughter excited about her lessons by incorporating new techniques and ideas for her to continue to grow and thrive in her lessons and performances. We see our daughter improve in her playing every week. She recently started playing the flute in her middle school band, and she picked up the instrument so quickly I feel because of the foundation Innovative Music Studio has given her in music theory. If you are looking for a teacher for you or your child, I highly recommend Kim and Innovative Music Studio!Dec 29, 2019Review from GoogleInnovative Music Studio, Valparaiso, Indiana's reply

Kim was absolutely wonderful. My daughter is very shy and she loved taking piano lessons with her. She makes learning fun and my daughter now loves to play piano!Jul 25, 2016

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been teaching music in various capacities since 2000. This has included teaching piano lessons, voice lessons, harp lessons, and handbell lessons/workshops, leading children’s choir, directing three different handbell choirs, teaching workshops on music ministry. I adapt to the learning style and interests of each student, often developing creative ways to help them learn the music, theory and technique – including interactive games, visuals, worksheets, flashcards, etc. I also make sure to find repertoire for their favorite songs written at their level so that they are able to play music that they know and love. We choose our teachers based on their love for their music and their ability to impart excellent training and passion to their students!
- What types of customers have you worked with?We love working with students of all ages and levels!
