Online Lessons

Learn from anywhere online with a platform designed for music teaching.
I believe music helps build confidence and skills that transfer to other aspects of our lives keeping the brain stimulated. It also helps us to relax.
My goal is to create enjoyable lessons which develop and nurture pianists' skills and musical understanding so they can play music they enjoy.

Teaching Philosophy

  • To encourage and support lifelong learning and enjoyment of playing the piano, from school aged children through to the elderly. This includes playing and learning music for enjoyment, or other goals.
  • Teaching pianists to read notation, understand chords and rhythm, and to apply theoretical learning to be able to play classical or popular music styles.
  • Playing with a healthy technique, developing a practice technique as well as individual goal setting.
  • Providing different ways and experiences to learn with a
    variety of technology and resources.
  • To create a studio community to support and to become inspired by each other.
  • Having opportunities to learn to perform, opportunities to share music with the wider Upper Hutt community, a parent programme, sharing successes, watching professional performances together and creating opportunities for adult students playing/social
Relaxed & Friendly

“Both my daughters highly rate Karen and her teaching style. Her approach is very refreshing and is always open to teaching different genre's of music even though she has a strong classical background...from BTS and Khalid to Stevie Wonder and Elton John. Her knowledge, patience and skills on the keys always made my daughters come out of their lesson with a smile..”
