Thank you for your interest in hiring me as your piano teacher. The piano is a wonderful instrument to introduce you to the world of music. I started taking lessons when I was six years old. Seven years later, I began teaching my neighbors children at her request. Thirty years later, I am still teaching piano. Mostly, I have taught private lessons. Some of my students have gone on to be church pianists and piano teachers (much like me). Others have become jazz pianists and composers. Some play just for the pure enjoyment and relaxation that the instrument brings. A few have entered music competitions where, proudly I write, they have placed remarkably well. Some of my students have been seen performing on Main Street at Disneyland and some others on cruise ships. Still, some consider the piano a stepping-stone to other musical instruments. For whatever reason you want to play the piano, this promises to be a rewarding and positive experience.
We love Mrs. Karin! She has been our piano teacher going on 5 years. She’s brilliant and is great with my kids. They joke back and forth and it has been incredible to see my kids’ growth under her instruction. I appreciate how she gets after them when they are slacking and celebrates with them when they have done well. She talks to my kids the same way I do and I’m very comfortable with that. When people hear my kids play they are very impressed with the discipline and skill their playing shows. I can only give her all the credit.
