Karl is a nice teacher. He is very professional, teaching me different techniques and theories. He also teaches things that other teachers haven't taught me, such as hand positions in the bell and how to get clearer/better sounding notes. I have learned a lot from him.

Very easy to work with, very passionate, and very patient. Effortless human to human interaction, and will continue working alongside him to get the most out of this experience.

As others have stated Karl is very patient with a new learner. His explanations are thorough and understandable. I make progress from lesson to lesson (for the most part) and look forward to the next lesson.

Karl was explained things in a way I completely understood. He patiently and thoroughly addressed all my questions; and, didn't mind my interruptions or requests to repeat himself.

Excellent teacher! Karl broke down elements of the game into digestible parts, explained logic and tactics very clearly. Very helpful doing simulation together, so not talking at me as I think some instructors do. Engaging and patient...definitely recommend!
