Karen Turpin

RCM Certified
Teacher ARCT/LRCM
My musical studies began at an early age and I can't remember a time when I didn't play the piano! As an adult, I achieved both the Piano Pedagogy and Piano Performance Diplomas with The Royal Conservatory of Music and i have spent my teaching career sharing the wonders of music with my students. At Turpin Studio, parents and students can expect to find teaching based on a very structured and musically sound foundation. This, combined with a pleasant atmosphere and cheerful approach, provide many of the key ingredients to a student's success. The only requirement is motivation and a desire to learn!
