I hold a Master of Music degree in Music Composition and a Bachelor of Music Degree in Music Education: Vocal Emphasis. I am a member of Pi Kappa Lamba National Music Honor Society and Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society.

I began playing piano at the age of seven and progressively became involved in accompanying and singing. I have played other instruments such as organ, guitar and french horn and also compose original pieces. I have worked as an accompanist as well as a private instructor in piano and voice, and have performance experience as well.

I love sharing music with all people and enjoy the opportunity to share my knowledge. I enjoy working with students of all ages and design all lessons to match the needs of the individual.

I look forward to working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
As an instructor I offer a relaxed learning environment. While lessons should be structured and productive, they should also be enjoyable. I am adaptable to the needs of each individual student and plan my curriculum choices on that basis. I like to provide a solid foundation in the basics of music theory while also working on technique.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Keyboard/amp, microphone, music stands.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical voice and piano, as well as music theory. I have personally been involved performing in other styles such as Broadway and pop and compose my own music mainly in contemporary classical.

I really enjoyed her calmness and plasant atmosphere during the singing lesson. She was very professional flexible, and accommodating in nature. She is also very organized and constructive. I was very sad that she was moving away. Thank you, Kari.

I highly recommend Kari! I'm an absolute beginner and was extremely nervous to sing, but Kari made me feel comfortable and supported all the way. She teaches many styles of music, and even music theory and how to read notes. I really can't recommend Kari highly enough!!
