I’m a latecomer to the violin and Karen has been a great encouragement. Lessons are well focussed and really enjoyable. Her teaching is imaginative and motivational. She deals kindly and constructively with my modest progress. I don’t hesitate in recommending her.
Karen has a patient, kind and creative style. My 7-year old daughter absolutely loves 'jamming' with Karen fostering a great love for the violin. The sessions are constructive, easy to follow and fun. I couldn't recommend Karen highly enough!
I have two children, early teens, studying with Karen at an intermediate level. We have been through a number of Tutors. I am pleased to say that under Karen's guidance both my children are finally making real progress! Karen really understands how to identify weakness and encourages her pupils to make consistent improvements! Thoroughly recommend!
