Karen Lien is a fabulous teacher who take a very personal, invested interest in her students. My daughter has had several teachers in her 8 years of piano, but none compare with Karen! She is a gem.

Karen Lien is at the forefront of piano teaching and is the only instructor in San Antonio trained in the innovative Play-a-Story improvisation based program.

Fall in love with piano
Play a story was a really fun way for Elsa to start and build her relationship with the piano because she got to dive right into playing and creating music. Even at such a young age, not only did she learn a lot but I also watched her fall in love with her instrument and… Read more “Fall in love with piano”
Connect with individual learning styles
I couldn’t ask for a better introduction to piano for my daughter. Ms Lien is patient with students and parents (who are active participants in her teaching) alike. She is reflective with her methods and has a variety of ways to connect with individual learning styles.
Karen teaches very interactive piano classes using interesting teaching tools for her students. Our daughter has been able to perform in two public recitals in her first year of classes. Karen is very good at providing opportunities for her students.
learn and improve very quickly
Mrs. Lien is a phenomenal and encouraging teacher who has taught me in a fun way. She has helped me to learn and improve very quickly! Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor!
improvise and think creatively about the music
Karen encourages me to improvise and think creatively about the music. She has my strongest recommendation to students of all ages.
I could not ask for a better piano teacher than Karen for my 6-year-old daughter! Karen is a brilliant teacher who’s skilled, knowledgeable, patient, caring, and kind. I highly recommend Karen for anyone who wants to learn piano and loves making music!
