    My child takes piano lessons from Karina Burch already 8 years. I highly recommend Karina based of my experiences. I was very impressed by how organized Ms. Karina 's piano lessons were once we set up a goal for my daughter to take level 8 of the MTAC piano test. Ms. Karina did very professional work with my daughter. Her students always pass a test and even going to University for Music Major.
