Information About Karen - Filey teacher
This is how 3 referees rated Karen:
My name is Karen and I teach piano/keyboard from my home near Filey using both my baby-grand piano and full-size keyboard.
As well as teaching, I also have had over 25 years experience singing and playing in local bands. Currently I sing, play, compose and arrange for my all-female band RAVEN.
I am a Mum, with two teenage sons, a dog, cat and three ducks!
I teach all ages… it is never too late to learn, so if you are an adult, perhaps retired and looking for a new hobby, then I could be just the person you need. Get in touch!
I have over 30 years' teaching experience, both as a Primary school teacher and music teacher.
I have a B.Ed teaching qualification, Grade 8 piano, and Grade 8 Theory (ABRSM) qualifications.
I teach the traditional Classical piano method, but try to incorporate chord work, composition and free-style into my teaching. I encourage my pupils to be creative and go with whichever style of learning that best suits them.
I enjoy accompanying my pupils on guitar, accordion or keyboard, and the emphasis is on having some fun.
I also incorporate music theory into the lessons so my pupils are learning the theoretical side of music along with the practical.
If my students wish to take formal exams and achieve their own music qualifications, I have many years experience of entering pupils for the ABRSM examinations with a very high success rate.
