About Karen

Hi! My name is Karen D. I’ve had the pleasure of performing, singing, writing, and recording since I was seven years old. Besides being an Honor Graduate of Berklee School of Music, I have been a lifelong student of the international world-renowned instructors Dante Pavone and Charlie Banacos.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Music is all about you. My piano lessons are dedicated to you, refining your abilities, sharpening your ears, and incorporating enhanced levels of creativity. With a background also in composition I have a wide experience in not only performing but writing music, which gets me in close and personal to the inner workings. I have a wide range of knowledge in history and repertoire to engage students outside the realm of normal and often overplayed repertoire.

Especially during major world events, the need for art and mediums where humans can express their emotion are of vital importance. "Practice makes proficiency” - this is true for music as well as life. Mistakes are inevitable but it is mistakes that allow us to grow and achieve greater things. I will patiently and effectively work with you to refine the mistakes and achieve proficiency in your journey through music.

I am extremely personable and am an excellent listener. I graduated from the Hartt School and went to the New

Every student that I teach is treated as an individual. I work with them on their particular set of weaknesses, whether it be their overall musicianship, physical approach (technique), or knowledge of theory. Most importantly, I help my students achieve their own particular set of goals in a low-pressure environment. While I always find suitable repertoire for each student, I am happy to have students bring in pieces that they wish to work on. Above all else, I treat each one of my students with great respect.

About Christopher

I am an active concert pianist who has won and placed in over half of a dozen piano competitions. In the last 6 years, I have taught students of all ages and levels. Many of them have gone on to perform, audition, and succeed in their respective musical goals. I always make sure my teaching style is

I was very happy to find Christopher! As an adult, it has been many years since I took regular lessons. Chris offered the right set of knowledge, approach and flexibility to meet my exact needs. I find him friendly and quite helpful. As with many things over time, Piano lessons "ain't what they used to be," and I'm quite pleased with the new approach.

"Celine taught our daughters both piano and voice lessons. She is an excellent teacher with a wide knowledge of piano and singing. She is very kind, friendly and patient. They were not only able to learn from her, but they really enjoyed her as a teacher, as well... I would highly recommend her as a teacher."

"Kimberly is awesome! She made me feel totally at ease and comfortable and gave me so many useful tips on how to strengthen my ability as a pianist. I'd been with a different instructor previously and Kimberly's approach was so refreshing. She talks a lot about how to get the best from each piece of music, explained a lot about how a piano actually works (has anyone ever looked inside before?!?!), and also helped with my technique, which was sadly lacking. Reading music has always been a struggle for me but we have been working on that and I'm now getting to grips with it. Thank you!!!"
