Finding good music instruction is not nearly as easy as you might think. It seems like people around here are always searching for a piano or guitar teacher. Worry no longer. I am pleased to introduce Gavotte School of Music, and owner Kimberly Hunt.
Not only is Kimberly a lovely lady, but she’s assembled a very strong ensemble of solid teachers for a number of different instruments. Personally, we use a piano and a guitar teacher, and both are great fits for my boys. She has a variety of teachers — ours are young, creative and enthusiastic.
Check out the Gavotte website, and be sure to read about the summer camps — where band camp is cool! Here’s Kimberly….
How long have you lived in PVB or the Beaches area? About three years
What is your favorite thing about PVB? I love the beach, and I love the great feeling of community that we have here in PVB.
What made you start Gavotte? I’ve always had a passion for music. I play and teach several instruments. I saw there was a need for a full service music school in the area and felt this would be a positive addition to our community.
How long has Gavotte been around? Gavotte School of Music opened March 17, 2014.
What should people know about Gavotte? At Gavotte School of Music, we teach children and adults piano, guitar, violin, voice, drums, ukulele, saxophone, viola, cello and more. The Gavotte staff is professionally trained and we offer a climate for learning that is peaceful and creative.
What are your hobbies outside of your profession? I love to write, go to the beach, go to art museums, hear live music, and spend time with my family.
If you could have lunch with anyone, who would it be and why? Leonardo daVinci. I’d love to pick his brain about art, philosophy, strategy and the creativity that led to his inventions.
What was your favorite subject in school? Learning new languages (I took several of them)
What is your favorite football team? Don’t really have one, although I may say Georgia Bulldogs only because my son’s childhood friend plays for them.
What is your favorite book? I would do just as well trying to pick a favorite color, there are so many great ones out there.
Favorite and least favorite trend in your business? Favorite – seeing the “aha” moments with students as they’re learning. Least favorite – the seasonal wax and wane of enrollment
If you can change one thing about Ponte Vedra, what would it be? Nothing comes to mind. I love it here!
Last time you laughed out loud uncontrollably? And why? Mother’s Day 2015. I got to talk with all four of my children at the same time from three other states, and we were laughing about good memories!
Your suggestion for a Ponte Vedra mascot? A turtle amidst the sea grass.
