Karina Rodriguez began her musical education after being accepted in San Juan’s Children Choir of Puerto Rico at the age of 8, where she learned vocal techniques, music theory, and the importance of discipline and musicality. At the age of 12, Karina began to learn guitar and piano; two instruments that became pivotal elements during her beginnings as a singer-songwriter and composer.
In 2014 she attended the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico through the music composition degree where she had the opportunity of being part of the Conservatory’s composers collective, participating in various composing competitions, as well as being part of the Conservatory’s choir and the Latin-American Folk ensemble. It was during this time that she dug into her passion for teaching and began to work both freelance and at various music academies as piano, guitar, and voice teacher. The age of her students usually range from 5 year olds to adults of all ages.
Now, recently relocated to the area of Boston, Karina continues her studies at Berklee College of Music. She’s a Yamaha certified vocal instructor and believes in the importance of teaching through creative activities that stimulate the students to develop their musicality and imagination.
