About Karen

Hello and thanks for checking out my, 'I love me' paragraph ; ). But really this is about YOU. It's about how my teaching and life experiences may help you along your personal musical journey. I've learned a great deal in my 20 years of teaching; - patience - persistence - keep it fun - change it up It's my belief that music fundamentals are critical and we will create a solid musical foundation by learning the language, understanding the critical issues of timing & rhythm, and reading. I enjoy working with all ages but specialize in children and adults that act like children! Stay a child! Learn something new. What are you waiting for?!
