About Karen S.

I have experience teaching both beginning and intermediate piano and beginning voice. I enjoy working with students of all ages and helping them develop as musicians. I am patient and understanding and believe that students need to feel comfortable with a teacher to optimize the learning experience. I studied private piano into my high school years and studied organ and voice in college where I was a vocal soloist. I attended Concordia College, Ann Arbor, Mi and received my BA in Music Education from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa I have accompanied both Middle School and High School Choirs and instrumentalists, played organ and directed church choirs. I currently am a substitute organist. I enjoy working with students one on one. I recently moved to La Porte so took a break from teaching for a few months but am ready to get back to work. Sharing music is a great joy. I especially love playing keyboard because of its expressive nature, the soft and loud, the sweetly and the contemplative. It brings me pleasure especially when a challenging piece has been mastered. *** Lesson Details *** I attempt to adapt lessons so each student can be successful. A variety of curriculum is used based on student's needs and the basic curriculum is supplemented with additional material to reinforce the lessons being taught. Each piano lesson begins with reviewing material from the previous lesson and then learning new pieces, including technique and theory as appropriate to the music. Practicing is an essential part of the learning process. Students are given practical ideas on how to make practicing more effective and enjoyable. *** Studio Equipment *** Living Room: piano, couches and chair, room for parents to wait for students in dining room or living room *** Travel Equipment *** Students need to provide a piano in a quiet place free of distractions.
