Teaching Experience: I have been teaching for over 20 years. I taught in the public school system and currently teach at 2 private schools and give private instruction.
Teaching Philosophy: I believe very strongly that being able to connect with a student is just as important as what you are teaching and that it helps to build a positive learning environment. I work with my students to help them build a strong skill foundation and the knowledge they need to be musically successful. Learning an instrument is definitely work, but it is just as important that they learn to also have fun! : )

Get to know Kenneth Lightfoot

Hi! My name is Ken Lightfoot and I have been teaching for over 20 years. I can’t believe it’s been
that long...time definitely FLIES when you are having fun! : ) From the moment I started teaching I knew
it was my calling. I enjoy being able to help my students discover the world of music and the enjoyment
that comes from playing an instrument.
My musical journey began at a very young age. My first instrument was cello in 3rd grade and I picked
up the trombone in 5th. I continued with both instruments through high school and into college. Cello
was always my main instrument and was my major in college. Along the way I started playing with a
band that I am still with today after 25 years! I have also performed in other bands, orchestras and
chamber groups.
I started my teaching career in the public school system where I taught elementary and middle school
strings as well as band. This is where I honed my skills on the violin and viola. When I left the public
school system I focused on giving private lessons and over time I was hired by private schools.
