Overview

Teaching online since 2013. I teach beginner to advance flute and beginner to intermediate clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, and tuba. I believe that performance-based music programs offer the most effective way to prepare 21st century students for the challenges of today’s competitive environment. My lessons are designed with the 21st century learner in mind. I am passionate about providing the best music education possible to all of my students. My goal is that every student develops and is able to share the same love for music that I enjoy.

Flute · Online
Karyn is a wonderful teacher! I was having trouble finding a private flute instructor in our area and, to my surprise, found that one could take lessons online. It's working out very, very well. Karyn's experience in music education is obvious and translates easily, even though lessons are online. She relates well to my fifth grade daughter and pushes her to do her best. I appreciate her patience, her encouragement for a job well done, and her guidance as to how to do better. This very choosy mom would recommend Karyn in a heartbeat for your flutist.
