Kari was very positive and encouraging. Lessons always got me more motivated to practice and excited to improve.”“I loved working with Kari. She was always so encouraging and provided compliments often. It helps me be a confident player when the teacher is that way.” “Kari was very patient and kind, even though I’m a frustrating student to work with. I loved her teaching method, it was amazing. She did an excellent job of working with me and helping me to relax and improve. And, she knows what she’s talking about. She was able to show me techniques that improved my playing almost immediately. (Some practice was needed, but still.) I’ve taken music classes from three different teachers, a fourth who was a private instructor, all very experienced. And I still feel that Kari taught me better and more efficiently than any of those, the private instructor included. She’d even corrected or cleared up a few mistakes past teachers had made...” Rating of 5.0000 based on 1 reviews.
