Karen was a gifted pianist and dedicated and inspiring teacher and was tragically killed in an automobile accident in 2009. Her expertise in performance, teaching and adjudicating were well established throughout Connecticut and beyond. Karen held degrees in Piano Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and Yale School of Music. She continued her studies with Paul Baumgartner in Switzerland, with Leon Fleischer, and with Konrad Wolff. At the time of her death she was teaching students of all ages at her Westbrook studio, Brown University in Providence, and Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford.

Members of the Middlesex-New London Chapter of Connecticut State Music Teachers Association have created a fund in Memory of Karen A. Nelson at the Community Foundation.
