Karin first encountered Dalcroze Eurhythmics as a student at the Royal College of Music, London where she studied piano, violin and harpsichord. She subsequently trained as a singer and brings her experience as a performer in all these capacities to her Dalcroze practice. To help conservatoire students with their interpretation and performance of repertoire she developed Dynamic Rehearsal, an application of Dalcroze principles to the rehearsal and performance of repertoire, solo and ensemble, which she has demonstrated worldwide with children, amateur and professional players and singers and which is the subject of her doctoral thesis.
Karin teaches at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, at TrinityLaban, London and has a well-established international practice. Her teaching experience includes extensive work with dancers and in nursery, primary and secondary schools. In recent years her teaching has focussed increasingly on the training of professional musicians and Dalcroze teachers. Author of a growing number of publications, she is a frequent presenter and workshop leader at national and international conferences. She is a founder member of the scientific committee of the International Conference of Dalcroze Studies (ICDS), Co-Director of Studies for the Dalcroze Eurythmics International Examination Board (DEIEB) and secretary to the Collège of the IJD.
