Private Piano Teacher

I was born and raise on Peru, South America. My interest in music began when I was 9 years old. I came to USA when I was 17 and started attending college. I have take several music classes at college level like Music Theory, Music History, Piano, Voice and Ensemble. I finished my Associates degree in Fine Arts in Music in 2010. I have over 10 years of experience teaching music to students of all ages. I teach guitar and piano and I use different methods according to the student's needs. I also hold 2 recitals a year so students can show their hard work.

It's amazing how our brain can absorb information in different ways. We can be learning something unintentionally. So whichever your circumstances are we should be open to learn or improve our skills every day. Remember, the process of learning never ends.

Private Piano Teacher

I have played the piano for over 20 years and believe it is the most versatile instrument there is. I love working with beginners and helping them feel comfortable maneuvering around the keys. Even if you eventually want to play another instrument, the piano translates incredibly well to all other instruments.

great first session but I think for very young beginners it is difficult to engage. Overall a very nice experience but the location was incorrect in the system and so in the end too far for us to commit.
Elizabeth A.
Keith was a good teacher to our son, he was patient and kind. Our son learned a lot from him, we hope in the future to use him again, if the opportunity arises. Thanks Keith!
Ying
Keith is an amazing teacher. My 7 year old son likes him very much. Before the lessons I worried our boy couldn’t build his interest in playing piano, just lose his enthusiasm after a while as the 7 years old always did. But Keith make me totally worry free, my son likes him very much, and he really knows how to build the kid’s interests and confidence while learning. Now my son enjoyed himself very much with Keith in their piano time. We are so lucky to find Keith.

My experience in playing and teaching piano has always been from a performance perspective. I can read sheet music like any other but I emphasize on playing by ear and using a music theory system that will have you understanding before you are reading. I have nothing against sheet music but those who RELY on it don't make versatile musicians. That's a fact. With that being said, if you want to learn how to hear a song or create song by ear WITH understanding of every note and chord then I'm your guy. Let's take your performance to another level.

Each of my students are so unique and different. I enjoy being able to teach my students according to their personality and how they are able to learn. There's going to be different strategies, games, ideas, songs, etc included in each lesson. Lessons start off where their level is and each lesson, the student is able to grow and move forward and learn new things. I have students also answer questions they learned and have them talk about each song or chord or scale and have them tell me what they see or here. I add in music theory to each lesson. I make it fun and easy to understand and learn. Each student is able to learn how to play different songs and pieces according to what they are learning in their theory lessons, chord progression songs from pop, rock, jazz, classical, etc. I have each student buy their books whether it's online copy or physical copies. These books provide the necessary requirements to learn how to play songs, read music, learn theory, and have room for ...

"Everything you need to reach your goals!

I have been taking lessons with Karen for about 2 months now. Under her tutelage I have advanced quickly right before my eyes! I am very excited at the progress she has brought me as I have been trying for years to just follow some of the beginner books myself with no luck and a lot of frustration.
Karen will remove the frustration with her patients, clear communication, and demonstration. Her energy helps me slow down and relax. I'm seeing clearly how a relaxed student is a much more productive student. By the time I get home I want to do the homework and look forward to what is next!
If you are a goal setter and want to learn piano, rest assured, Karen will be able to assist you in reaching those goals!"
