About Karen

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

I am a current Juilliard undergraduate with experience formally teaching beginner- intermediate level students. I welcome students of all levels who are interested in advancing their knowledge and ability to become pianistically proficient. For all my students, I emphasize the importance of practicing efficiently while developing critical listening skills. Although practicing might usually seem laborious, I strive to help students seek the enjoyment out of the music that they want to play.

Music is all about you. My piano lessons are dedicated to you, refining your abilities, sharpening your ears, and incorporating enhanced levels of creativity. With a background also in composition I have a wide experience in not only performing but writing music, which gets me in close and personal to the inner workings. I have a wide range of knowledge in history and repertoire to engage students outside the realm of normal and often overplayed repertoire.

Especially during major world events, the need for art and mediums where humans can express their emotion are of vital importance. "Practice makes proficiency” - this is true for music as well as life. Mistakes are inevitable but it is mistakes that allow us to grow and achieve greater things. I will patiently and effectively work with you to refine the mistakes and achieve proficiency in your journey through music.

I am extremely personable and am an excellent listener. I graduated from the Hartt School and went to the New

Strong instrumental playing begins with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of music and the simple act of making a sound from the instrument. Students learn to play music by ear first, and are later introduced to music notation. More advanced lessons emphasize sight-reading, expression, and improvisation.

Thomas has studied piano for 15 years, and continues to play regularly. His education has included courses specifically on musical instruction methodologies, and he has been trained as a pianist at the collegiate level.

About Thomas

Eric D.
The first lesson was successful. My particular background in piano is unique, and my needs are atypical as well. I thought Thomas assessed my abilities, lack of abilities, and goals well and quickly. He started me on a different perspective on looking at music (reading the staff) that seems very helpful. I'm encouraged.

"I am 85 years old and hired Fawn to teach me piano. It was my childhood dream. Within the 2 years, I've been taking, I have completely mastered a high concerto level of playing. Under Fawn's guidance, I have moved quickly, thoroughly and efficiently. I even performed on stage 2 different years in her Talent Share's (audiences of over 100)! Fawn has taught me classical, pop, blues, jazz and ragtime. I love playing the blues and songs from my childhood. Fawn does a great job with understanding my goals and giving me tools that fit me and help me achieve them. She is beautiful and a very patient, gentle, loving and intuitive teacher. One day I was making an excuse for my mishap plain by telling her my arthritis had been acting up all week. She laughed and said jokingly, "Bernard, don't blame your arthritis for not practicing!" She's hilarious. I am blessed to have found Fawn. The hours of joy playing the piano has brought me and my wife is priceless. Thank you, Fawn! See you next Tuesday!"
