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.
