Karen first started learning music at the age of 4 from her mom and then her aunt, and by the age of 15 was helping her mom and aunt teach younger kids in their homeschool. Besides music, Karen also attended classes in Speech and Drama, and as a teenager, she coached, taught and mentored younger kids in the Fine Arts.
After high school however, she left music for a while to go to college andearned her Masters degree in Business Administration after which she worked in the Corporate world. It was only after she married and had her own children that she decided to rededicate her life to teaching.
By this time Karen had acquired a diverse range of skills, which helped her to look back at her own training in Music and Theatre. She used her knowledge of teaching and pedagogy as well as eLearning and Adult Learning to reassess and structure the musical knowledge she had acquired as a child, into a more pleasing and enjoyable experience for young learners. Furthermore, her understanding of Adult Learning and Learning Styles also helped her in creating her flagship program Teach Your Child Piano,which is especially targeted for the Musically Untrained Homeschool Parent.
Besides being fun and engaging, all of Karen's programmes are grounded in her signature method the Transformational Five Framework, which ensures that all learners gain a solid foundation to help them master the art of playing piano in the future.
In keeping with the Transformational Five Framework, Karen ensures that in each lesson the child has an opportunity to develop skills in the following five areas
Furthermore as a part of the Transformational Five Framework, Karen also ensures that the learning is supplemented through
Besides all of the above, Karen also takes the guesswork out of teaching by providing the homeschooling parent with the following resources, as a part of the Transformational Five Framework.
It is Karen's dearest wish that all children, irrespective of their background are able to experience the joy of music in their homeschool. And to this end, it is her vision to reach out to a million or more moms'/parents' who have always dreamed of teaching their kids music, but couldn't do so because they were not taught music as kids.

I know music is so important to brain development and as a first year homeschooler, full time worker and mom to a brand new baby I wanted to find a program that would expose my four-year-old daughter to it for the first time in a flexible and friendly way.
This program has accomplished that! I loved that I could fit the lesson into my schedule anywhere without having to pack everyone up and drive across town. Before starting this program I never knew my daughter could be learning notes at such a young age, let alone actually be playing songs from the very first day.
She was thrilled to find that she could play duets with her father and now has the confidence to "pick around" at the keyboard making up her own music. The detailed lesson plans, videos, games and activities were easy to follow and made teaching require almost no preparation time from me, and since I have no experience playing an instrument, this was very helpful.
My experience has definitely increased my confidence in homeschooling and I wholeheartedly recommend this course to other to anyone who wants supplement their child's learning or even their own

I’m a homeschooling mom of seven, with a very limited musical background—I took a single piano course in college because I needed the humanities credit! But, despite my lack of knowledge, I knew that I wanted my children to know more about music than I did. I just didn’t know how to teach it.
I heard about Karen’s class, and it sounded like a great fit for my family. I decided to have my six-year old daughter go through it first, as she was the most interested in learning to play.
I loved that this course started with the assumption that I didn’t know anything about music. It provided the framework I needed to feel successful. I also loved that a variety of learning methods were provided. My daughter loved the games, but there were also worksheets and videos. The weekly lesson plans were complete, and I never questioned what I should be doing next.
I’ll be going through the material again with a couple of my other kids. I appreciate the fact that I’m saving money on private music lessons! I’d definitely recommend this course to other homeschooling moms. It gave me confidence to teach a subject I personally don’t have much experience with.
