"Karen absolutely stands out from the crowd. Lessons with her have always been the highlight of my week. She is not only a great teacher, but a talented musician with a unique feel for how music is connected to our emotions and personality. It is really hard to find somebody who is both great at what they do and at teaching it to others, and I was very lucky with Karen. She taylors the lessons to everyone's needs and abilities and helps one discover one's own voice, performing style and potential one was not aware of. I am very grateful to her for the progress I made and strongly recommend her to all who truly cherish music."
