Karen Nichols has an extensive resume in the music industry as a performer (keyboardist/singer/songwriter) and industry businessperson, including working at A&M Records in Hollywood, California in the 80's.  She had a long career as a solo pianist in clubs and now plays jazz gigs with her group  The Swingbeans, and teaches privately in her teaching studio in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  She is primarily a piano and voice teacher (all levels, all styles and genres) but also instructs beginning guitar students in the basics (chords, note reading, tablature, beginning major and minor scales, easy classical and pop pieces).  She is a popular and fun teacher to study with, and her students have gone on to star in theatrical productions, tour with their own pop and rock bands, obtain church music ministry positions, and write phenomenal songs.  Her clients love having an experienced professional who worked in Los Angeles and San Francisco for many years, bring her expertise to southwest Virginia, and parents appreciate the graduate level teaching credentials she earned which help her address particular student needs.  Karen is a teacher who listens and takes an interest in the direction and gifts of the individual student.
