Piano, Ukulele | South Jordan

Kara has been teaching music for over ten years, and is excited to share her experience and love for music with students at The Piano Place! She has taught a wide variety of lessons, including piano, ukulele, bucket drumming, and musical theater. Kara’s teaching style is very much student-led. She is accommodating in lessons, taking cues from the student and making transitions in the lesson or activity to keep them engaged. She believes that there is not a single right way to teach a student, and she believes in the need to teach the way each individual learns. Sometimes this means using games and other tools to engage students. Sometimes this means walking away from a particular piece of music and coming back to it at a later time, or changing to a different curriculum altogether. Kara is adaptable and can make quick changes to her lesson plan to accommodate her students, and meet them right where they are.

“Music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
- Billy Joel
