It is often said that the foundation of teaching is the art of building human relationships.  Karen’s ability to build a relationship with my daughter has driven her to grow exponentially, she has a renewed love of the violin.  With Karen’s help Erin has begun exploring new techniques and expanded her music choices.  She is always anxious for lessons to start and begs me to be early every week.  Her enthusiasm to please Karen have increased her desire to practice hours a day.
