About Karen

Education combined with passion.


MISSION


Karen’s mission is to spread the joy of community music making to everybody. Why should one remain a spectator when they can actively participate in the music? She believes that everyone has an inner musician ready to engage and delight those who surround them. Regardless of one’s age and ability, music and music making is not simply for those who have chosen to pursue it. The opportunity to experience an activity for self-expression and creativity is one that she would love to share with everyone she meets. Contact us to discover what music making activities await you!

What others are saying about Karen

Our group eagerly awaits her weekly visits and these music sessions. Karen has had a very dynamic and positive impact upon our program. Our people just adore her presence and kind manner. […] She is always cheerful and respectful, and has been able to engage a wide range of folks, (even one deaf-mute person, who we think responds primarily to the vibrations), with great enthusiasm into exploring the world of music and song. Many of our clientele have limited social skills and contact, but Karen seems completely at ease in this “different” setting. I find her a very bright, capable young person with great maturity and wisdom “beyond her years”. […] She has lots of energy, flexibility, and is an extremely positive individual. ”
