Karen graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Faculty of Music at York University. She studied piano with Christina Petrowska Quilico and music composition with David Mott. Karen also holds an ARCT Diploma in Piano Performance, and has studied piano pedagogy at the Royal Conservatory of Music. Her teaching style was influenced by the inspiring and encouraging guidance of Marina Geringas. To date, Karen’s students have always achieved First-class Honours in RCM examinations, and won awards in various music festival competitions.

Karen is also one of the experienced Music Adventure (group lessons) teachers at Pro-Music. She has taught Music Adventure to junior and senior kindergarten students at Wesley Christian Academy. In addition to her teaching, Karen actively participates in many music workshops, to share ideas and discuss issues relevant to piano pedagogy. The Orff Approach that she studied under Margaret Hugget has effectively enhanced her group and piano lessons through its emphasis on songs, games, rhythms, poems, stories and percussion instruments. Karen’s teaching approach emphasizes a balance of affection, patience and strength, and encourages her students to enjoy the process of learning.
