Jean Dickinson

Jean Dickinson is an independent contractor who teaches Violin, Viola, Cello, and Bass at Knapton Musik Knotes.  She is licensed through the state of Wisconsin to teach K-12 instrumental music and specializes in strings.

Jean is the Conductor for the UW-Rock County Youth Orchestra, and she's a founding member of the Whitewater String Quartet.  She has participated as a player in the UW-Rock County Chamber Orchestra, Beloit Janesville Symphony, Choral Union Orchestra, Southern Lakes Orchestra, Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, and the Waukesha Symphony.  

The worst arrangement Jean ever did was rap music on the cello/violin.  As you can imagine, it didn't work out very well!  

When she's not teaching or playing, Jean collects mid-century jewelry and odd watches.  She's an avid gardener, loves to fish and bike, as well as canoe.  She hopes to someday master jump-roping and the Pokeman card game that she plays with her grandson!

Karl Sorenson

 

Karl was Brad Lutton's very first guitar teacher!  Since October of 1985, Karl has given over 50,000 lessons!  He teaches guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, banjo, and drums.

When Karl was young, his interest in music was sparked by his father whose country band practiced every week in the home.  Sharing this love of music with students is Karl's favorite part about teaching.  

Karl has played in countless bands over the years!  Back in the mid-90's, he even spent three years writing the World's Greatest Chord Book, just for his own personal use!
