integrō pedagogy



With more than 30 years of teaching and performing experience, Karen brings her expertise and enthusiasm for continued learning to each session. Borrowing from many schools of method as well as the influential teachers she has worked with, Karen has cultivated a vast pool from which to draw from when it comes to teaching cello technique. Many professionals and students who have worked with her have nicknamed her the "Prop Queen." If this peaks your curiosity, just wait until you find out the myriad of ways you can use an ear plug, lollipop stick or even a tennis ball - just to name a few - to improve your own playing and the progress of your students. These online sessions are meant to stretch your mind and abilities to their limits and are geared toward professionals seeking to hone or tweak aspects of their playing, toward teachers looking for refreshing new ways to present information to their students, as well as cello students seeking to gain sound technical advice and practice strategy solutions.
