My name is Karen and I have been teaching violin since 1994. I specialize in indivudally tailoring my methods to meet the learning style and needs of each student. I teach skills such as the importance of proper pratice, self-motivation, audition preparation, and the relevance of music theory and history. I teach all ability levels on the violin from beginning to advanced, and viola from beginning to intermediate, ages six through adult.
I have numerous performance experiences and merits. I was 1st alternate to state for violin in the Pierce County District Solo and Ensemble competition. And I have performed in the Federal Way Symphony Orchestra since 1990, the Tacoma Opera Orchestra since 1994, the Tacoma City Ballet Orchestra since 2017, and many more orchestra performances.
I look forward to teaching you soon!
