About Kenneth Lightfoot
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
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.
