Karen Turpin ARCT, RMT

I have lived in the Yarmouth area all of my life. 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 have spent my teaching career sharing the wonders of music with my students.
