I first met Kim in the Fall of 2006 when my son took her piano class at Saturday Recreation offered by the Town of Huntington. He enjoyed it so much that the following year he began private lessons with Kim at our home. Kim’s enthusiasm and patience shines through when interacting with her students. She gets them to challenge themselves with increasingly difficult pieces. Kim is very flexible and accommodating with the scheduling of lessons. My son has performed in her annual recitals and has completed Level V in the NYSSMA evaluations. Now after over eight years of lessons with Kim, my son will be going off to college this fall. However, because of the special and talented person that Kim is, we have no doubt that we will stay in touch.

My family has had the pleasure of knowing Kim and having her teach piano to my daughter for over four years. Her patience, talent, enthusiasm, and dedication to her students and music are inspiring. Every year, we look forward to the recital, which Kim prepares with great pride and her students, too! We look forward to more years with Kim, as my younger son will begin lessons soon.

Kim McGee has taught my daughter piano going on 9 years  (2007-2015). We have found Miss Kim to be extremely competent, enthusiastic,  happy and possessing a positive attitude. She relates extremely well with children. Miss Kim has exhibited patience and flexibility and is adept at changing things up to maximize learning. Kim teaches music theory and has students learn both classical and popular music. My daughter has attained NYSSMA  Level 5, piano, under Miss  Kim's tutelage and has always been expertly prepared for her NYSSMA auditions. I heartily recommend  Kim McGee to anyone,  child to adult.

My daughter’s experience with Kim Baert-McGee has been nothing but wonderful. She has helped my daughter out a lot throughout the years. Because of her my daughter is about to attend George Mason University for Music Composition, and was also accepted into Berklee, which is one of the top music schools in the country. This women simply cannot do enough for my daughter. Kim always does her best to see to it that my daughter succeeds. Her teaching style is perfect because she is serious but playful at the same time, which is the best learning style for children. My daughter successfully completed levels 1-6 of NYSSMA because of this women. She was also a finalist in “Got Talent? Long Island” competition. My daughter started out with her when she was 6 years old. If you want your child to be successful on piano, this is the teacher to have. I cannot say enough good things about this women.
