Welcome to my website! I am a experienced freelance accordionist, saxophonist, composer and arranger, and I work in all musical genres.

I have had great sucess in composing music for saxophone and write for accordion and other instruments too, for a full list of my compositions please click here.

If you would like advice on how to write for accordion or for any bookings or inquiries, please contact me at karen@karenstreet.com, and I will be happy to help.
