Karen has been the clarinet teacher at The Abbey School, Reading for 15 years. During this time, she has built up the number of pupils learning the clarinet, whilst running some of the ensembles in the Senior and Junior School. She teaches saxophone as well as clarinet at the Junior School and she has some piano pupils at the Senior School. She also teaches extensively at home, with most pupils being young pianists, but she is equally happy to welcome new clarinet pupils and adult pupils. During the pandemic, she taught exclusively on-line, mostly using Zoom. Now that the lockdown has been relaxed, she is returning to mostly face-to-face lessons, with strict hygiene measures in place, but with on-line lessons still available to those that prefer it.
