Kaarin hands

The Record Studio began offering private piano instruction in 1992. Since then, Kaarin has been guiding emerging pianists in the art of creative and elegant musical expression combined with proven pedagogy. 

Kaarin Record Leach is equally blessed with both impeccable piano technique and masterful musicality. I have been blessed to work with her during the past three years and she is dependable and always prepared. Her most special attribute is a personality that makes working with her a load of fun. She is simply a consummate professional.
