OWNER, PIANO INSTRUCTOR
Karen has a Bachelor's of Music in piano performance from the University of Indianapolis, and has been teaching private piano lessons for more than seven years. She most enjoys hearing about her students' lives and seeing their accomplishments with their musical studies. She lives in Greenwood with her husband Mark and their miniature dachshunds Alvin, Jaeger, and Louis, who protect the home from the many bunnies who like to linger in the garden.
Music has always been an important aspect of my life, and I believe piano lessons are a wonderful opportunity to aid in the development of a variety of students. I studied piano at Butler University from 2013-2015, I then migrated to and graduated from Franklin College. While at Butler I taught lessons through the community arts program and when I made the move to Franklin I continued playing and teaching lessons to my collegiate counterparts. Now I continue to sharpen my skills as a private instructor, as well as further my personal playing ability. By day I am a legal assistant at a law office in Franklin. I am excited to help my students grow in their playing abilities, growing their music theory, and learning how fun the piano can be!
We are happy to schedule a time to meet with you.

How old does my child
need to be to take lessons?
Music lessons can be a great idea for people of nearly all ages. Most young students are able to start lessons once they start school and have started reading. The instructor will be able to meet with your child and determine if he is ready to start lessons.
How much do students need to practice?
All students work with their instructor to determine practice expectations, depending on age and ability. For example, young beginning students may agree with their instructor to practice 20 minutes at a time 3-4 days a week, but a more advanced student may be required to practice 45 to 60 minutes 4-5 days a week. Practice expectations are meant to be reasonable and beneficial to the students.
