Learning to play the violin can be one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences. I look forward to providing an enriching learning environment for my students of all ages and levels. With a background in various methods including certifications and doctoral research, I believe my curriculum is flexible and rigorous for students of all backgrounds. I encourage my students to reach their potential and find the best method that works for them. I love a student who is ready to learn and has a passion for music!

About Karen L.

What does music mean to you? To me it means connecting with others, reaching my potential, finding my voice. I find that music gives me the opportunity to explore and create while also challenging myself to reach new levels. I love learning new skills, the ability to play the pieces and songs I love, and the opportunity to perform with friends and colleagues including in virtual spaces.

If you find yourself thinking the same things, we will work great together. Through my experience teaching for over 15 years and with certifications in two methods along with doctoral research in a third, I will help you find and reach your musical goals. I have performed across the United States and Europe in professional and semi-professional ensembles and have experience performing all kinds of music including classical, jazz, and pop with Grammy award-winning artists.

I hold degrees from the University of Miami (Doctorate of the Musical Arts), University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music (Masters of Music and Artist Diploma), and Bard College at Simon's Rock (Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Music).

Please contact me with any questions you might have and I look forward to working with you!

I have been taking lessons with with Karen for the last 3 years and I love every minute. I have improved so much and she helps me tackle each problem that I run into. Things that I thought I could never play I can now achieve and we are working on so much more. I couldn’t recommend Karen enough. She’s amazing!!
