Kristen stands out as an instructor with her engaging and adaptable teaching style. Her approach to lessons centers on the understanding of different learning styles. This helps her connect with students and personalize each lesson. No two people are exactly the same, so no two lessons should be exactly the same. Kristen has been a clinician for multiple schools, helping students with both classical and jazz music. Her two years working with individuals with developmental disabilities cultivated her talent for teaching private lessons. Kristen directed her enthusiasm and talent toward teaching at the Keyboard Art School of Music, in Wrightwood, CA, with its inspiring atmosphere. Now, she is bringing that energy to the San Diego music scene. She enjoys sharing ideas with students to find creative ways to appreciate music and grow as artists together. Kristen is a member of the Music Teachers Association of California.
