Ehru:
A Chinese two-stringed bowed musical instrument, more specifically a spike fiddle, which may also be called a Southern Fiddle, and sometimes known in the Western world as the Chinese violin or a Chinese two-stringed fiddle. It is used as a solo instrument as well as in small ensembles and large orchestras. It is the most popular of the huqin family of traditional bowed string instruments used by various ethnic groups of China. A very versatile instrument, the erhu is used in both traditional and contemporary music arrangements, such as in pop, rock, jazz, etc. and makes a calm sound. As with learning any instrument we would start with the basics of tuning, right and left hand technique, bow technique, placement, vibrato, notes, rhythms, songs and soloing.

Karen fixed my problem in five minutes after I had two years of getting no where. I play clarinet and was curling my fingers like on a clarinet. On a bagpipe, you must lay the fingers flat. Suddenly all the pressure problems with the reed went away.

I've had about 12 lessons with Karen so far. Out of the few guitar teachers I've gone to in my life, Karen is definitely my favorite. She is super encouraging, patient, and careful about details. We started off by going through a beginner's book that covered sight reading and guitar basics, just what I needed. She was very flexible and willing to incorporate singing into the lessons, which helps a lot. Also, she's generally a good person and it's easy to feel comfortable around her -- in the past I have sometimes been so nervous around previous instructors that I could hardly play a note. Not so this time -- I am very happy with the lessons because I feel like I am making progress. Learning to play guitar is a dream of mine and with Karen I feel like I'll get there!

I had no confidence whatsoever in my vocal ability, however singing was something I always wanted to try. I took the plunge and began vocal lessons with Karen. She was very knowledgeable and patient, and it was a lot of fun, too!

The erhu is such an amazing instrument, but finding an erhu teacher can be extremely difficult. I'm here for you! I will show you how to get a great sound out of this challenging instrument, and help you play traditional Chinese songs. And remember, I speak Mandarin too!

Excellent lessons! Ian teaches fun songs that engage kids but also about technique & theory in a very casual and relaxed manner. Highly recommended!
