About Kim Davenport

I have been a member of the UWT community since1999, serving in a variety of administrative roles, and more recently, as a lecturer in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences. I hold degrees from Northwestern University (M.M, 1998), and the Univesrity of Washington (BA/BM, 1997). As a teacher, I enjoy working both in the classroom, and also one-on-one with piano students in my private studio. In both settings, I work to share my love and appreciation of music and its vital role in our expression and understanding of the world around us - with students of all ages and backgrounds. My work as an educator is firmly rooted in the local community. As a performer, I have worked extensively as an accompnist with singers and instrumentalists, choirs, and orchestras around the Pacific Northwest. Most notable is my work with Duo Alea, a critically-acclaimed bass clarinet/piano duo. The Duo's performances and recordings have brought local and world permieres of several important works. The Duo are also active in music publishing and recording, forming the independent firm Alea Publishing & Recording in 1997 to produce their own recordings and make available new music for the bass clarinet.
