My name is Kim Knopp. Born in Sacramento, CA in 1953. I started learning music in church choirs from age 5. Sang in church, school, and college choirs until my adult years . In 1979 I moved to Seattle, WA continuing to sing in church choirs and with the Seattle Men's Chorus from 1984-99. I've played the piano since age 7 taking lessons for about 12 years. I started dabbling into composing just as a hobby in 1980. I now live in Toulouse , France with my partner, Dominique, and composing is still my hobby.
