My name is Karen Saunders and I teach piano to children and adults of all ages in my home studio. I serve the south Twin Cities Metro area, including Lakeville, Apple Valley, Burnsville, Rosemount, and Farmington. I offer 15 minute lessons for younger children up to 60 minute lessons for teenagers and adults. Recitals are held in the Spring and at Christmas time.
Music has always been a central focus of my life. I love the rhythms, the physicality, the intellectual stimulation, and the emotional release of music. As a piano teacher, my goal is to instill my lifelong appreciation of music into my students.
To accomplish this, I individualize my teaching methods for each person. The books used, the music studied, and the games played are tailored to the student’s specific needs. Piano is the perfect gateway to the joy that music brings. Weekly lessons help my students, and I find that joy in little steps.
