"Karen models professional deportment and grace. She has the particular knack to give positive critique that is useful because the goal of improvement is clearly visualized by teacher and student from the outset. She gives individualized attention. I can HEAR the difference happening after a lesson. I can SEE the sparkle Karen leaves behind in my child's renewed strength to try harder and again. Having an adult in your child's life that influences in these ways is a rare gift. Fabulous teacher and human being.....you can't do better!"
