She is amazing! My 6 year old started at 5 in Germany and in 6 lessons he learned more and is better than he did in a whole year. She is SO sweet and soft spoken. She praises all the time and has all kinds of neat tricks or tools to make it fun especially for an almost 6 year old! We can not thank her enough for being part of our lives! Our son adores her and now calls the violin the God of Music because of her!

Kathleen is truly an answered prayer! Her credentials are impeccable, so we know that Karli is receiving superior instruction. However, it is her sweet and lovely spirit that we love. Initially unsure of how well "online" lessons would go, we are so thankful for the convenience, coupled with excellence, that we are privileged to have with Kathleen.
