Welcome to week seven of our blog series featuring questionnaires about our fantastic teaching staff here at the Omaha School of Music and Dance, located at 14505 California St. Omaha, NE. We hope that you are enjoying learning about the private lives of our instructors that spend time with your children every week! This week we are featuring our strings and beginning piano instructor, Karen Frahm!
What instruments do you in instruct and play?
I play the violin and instruct violin, beginning cello, and beginning piano. I am always willing to take on new students, even if the instrument they play is out of my comfort zone.
What are your hobbies outside of teaching music?
I love to spend time outside playing softball, hunting, and fishing. My family and friends are also a very important part of my life, and I love spending time with them!
Why did you decide to become a music teacher?
I became a music teacher because I have such a passion for not only violin, but for all instruments and music, and being able to teach and inspire younger generations is extremely rewarding to me.
Who is the person you admire the most and why?
The person I admire most is my grandma. She has always told me to follow my dreams and I got my love of music at a young age because of her.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I am part Irish and part German, so I would love to go to Ireland and Germany so that I could see where both sides of my family came from.
What is your favorite song?
My favorite song is “Butterfly Kisses,” by Bob Carlisle.
What is the one thing you couldn’t live without?
I couldn’t live without my parents and my brother. As I said before, my family is very important to me, and they are always encouraging me and inspiring me to be me and follow my dreams.
