Originally from Syracuse, NY Kara wound up in Philadelphia to attend The University of the Arts where she earned a BM in Voice and is currently finishing her Masters in Jazz Studies. Although her degree is in voice she has studied piano for more than 11 years and currently teaches piano for non majors at the university. Kara also teaches at Chestnut Hill Music Academy and for the last two years has run the music camp at a dance academy in the center city. She is excited to join the talented and successful faculty at The Music Workshop, and she hopes to be a positive inspiration to her students.
