About us

Hi! I’m Karin and I work a lot. 

I love to stay up late but I don’t love being tired in the morning. I love all kinds of music, but especially 1980’s pop and 1820’s Beethoven.

Since 2002 I have been a professor of music where I teach young classical musicians to become performers. But I’m really a life coach in piano teacher’s clothing.

Essential Oils

In 2017 I started experimenting with dōTERRA essential oils to see if they could help manage performance stress. They did. What I wasn’t expecting was how great they are at supporting focus and concentration.

Work-Life Balance

My desire to manage my health and home naturally coincided with my equally passionate to protect my personal time. This is what you’ll find here.

Putting It All Together

Now when I set down to write a blog post or practice a Beethoven sonata, I’m no longer distracted by all the other things going on because I know I have the rest of my work under control.

And oh no, I don’t get up at the crack of dawn to make it happen (but I do have a really dialed-in morning routine).

I would love to help you, too. Essential oils optional, but very highly recommended.
