"Karen’s music touches my soul. Waves of love and emotion flow outwards, enveloping all who hear her play. Her music speaks directly to the heart, opening and releasing emotions, filling the heart with love. Her music invokes a deep soul awakening, joy, purity, and healing for all to experience.

Listen, go deep, breathe and go deeper. The eternal patterns of the seasons link us to our deep and timeless connections. Nature teaches us to flow through cycles, trusting that the process is full of purpose and meaning.
Let the music invite you to listen to the singing of your soul. What patterns do you hear, what messages can you know? How does the music evolve as an accompaniment to new paths and new ways?
Go deep, listen, follow and create. Rejoice in the fruition of your planted dreams. May peace be yours.
Since I began playing the viola as a child, music's compelling and transformative power captured me and shaped my life. My deep life-long connection to nature and spirituality and my interest in integrating otherwise varied influences make me a unique musician and holistic healer.
My passion is to share the beauty and power of music with others and to teach people how to participate in their own healing process using music as a tool.
Thank you for your interest. Please visit my website and share in this process of evolving dreams.
