Karen McKibben

Karen McKibben began her musical education at the age of four and by seven she began pursuing classical studies in piano. Her classical training continued through high school and included playing for school choirs, choral groups, churches, as well as teaching piano.

Her life-long dream had been to play the harp professionally. She has studied and can teach both beginning pedal harp technique and lever harp. Although classically trained, she is inspired by a wide range of music: classical, folk, blues, jazz, and therapeutic music (such as for the hospice setting).

Karen has played as a guest performer for the Symphony Orchestra of Albuquerque Chamber Concert. She was a long-time member of the musical group "Celtic Coyotes" which plays traditional Irish, Scottish and Welsh music. She performs regularly for nursing homes, retirement centers, parties, funerals, and celebrations.

During lessons, Karen emphasizes the importance of proper technique as a strong foundation for progress. Her lessons include practical technique, music theory and improvisation. She offers individual lessons and the opportunity for her students to gather regularly for harp circles where they can share what they have learned and also have fun playing together. Karen welcomes all ages and levels of students.
