Carolyn B. Cary, NC

About Carolyn

I am a pianist and theorist who is enthusiastic about helping you learn more about music! I have a Bachelors of Music Performance from Appalachian State University and a Masters of Music Theory from Bowling Green State University. Music is one of my passions, a passion I would love to share with you!

I have experience with classical, classic, jazz, and Broadway music, among other genres. My performance and scholarly studies were primarily classical, but not limited to classical music.

Whether you pursue performance, scholarship, a greater appreciation of music, or simply a fun experience, I will help you reach your goals! None of these is exclusive, as all of them should be fun!

Carolyn B. is an excellent piano teacher

Carolyn B. has been teaching my 6yr old daughter for a year. Carolyn has a very engaging style of teaching that works extremely well for kids. She has a tested ability to skillfully refocus kid's attention by injecting fun into the lesson and reassuring the kid that "they can". She's extremely patient, is always pleasant is good at easing a child into stepping up their ability and confidence. From the start, I signed up my daughter for 1-hour lessons, unsure if she will focus. I'm amazed at how Carolyn keeps her engegaed through the hour. My daughter's skills and interest in piano continues to grow. I strongly recommend Carolyn B. to teach piano.

Great!

Carolyn has been teaching my 9 year old for just over 2 months and he has learnt immensely. She is very patient, friendly, soft spoken and my son loves her! He is a very shy kind and doesn't adjust to newer people so quickly but she is just phenomenal!

Elise showes off what she has learned, and purchases books that have music in them to learn. From what I see, Elise is happy under your teaching and I am happy too.

About Autumn

I have been actively involved in music all my life. I started playing violin 15 years ago. I never would have expected it to take me where I am today. It has guided me to become a confident, respectful, and creatively evolving adult.

I teach mostly classical style violin, but do have a few students who are mainly interested in church music, pop, folk, and fiddle. I love to arrange popular music for my students, and encourage this side of the violin as well as the classics.

I have played in a few symphony orchestras on the west coast Including the Orange County H.S. of the Arts Philharmonic, and the Spokane Honors Symphony. I have been involved in the creating of Composition Clubs, and String Quartets as well as String Trios in the Pacific Northwest.

My main focus with the ...

We could not have asked for a better violin instructor for our 7-year-old daughter. Autumn is exactly what she needed: someone engaging, flexible, creative, and most of all fun! Obviously she is tremendously skilled and a master of her craft, but this does not always make a great teacher. But Autumn is a great teacher, which makes her an absolute gift and inspiration! We are so lucky to have found her! Thanks, Autumn!!!

Autumn is encouraging and enthusiastic and helpful and fun. I am an adult and an experienced violinist who stopped playing for 20 years. I am just getting back into it and am delighted to find that I haven't forgotten how to read music and play, but I am really wanting to improve my sound. Autumn is happy to work on just what I want and need. I don't believe I could have found a better instructor for me.

Autumn falls magically!

So here I am on yet another fork in the road and now I have REAL aspirations of making wonderful sounds with my violin! I'm just an old silly man chasing a dream, and Ms. Autumn is making it happen! No matter how much I make annoying squeaking ear drum popping noises, she's right there making it all sound.....imaginary! Ms. Autumn rocks! Ms. Autumn rolls! She is the best of the best! I can't wait for each new lesson! Thanks so much!!!

About Matt

At heart, I'm a rock-nerd.

But the beautiful thing about music and especially music theory is that you start to realize that every composer, be it Bach or The Beastie Boys, uses the same tricks.

I can teach an arpeggio on piano and play a bit of a Beethoven song and then switch right to a Muse song and hear that exact same lick. With drums, I can teach a rudiment (the building blocks of percussion) and then play a Nirvana song back to back with a concerto and hear the exact same pattern played on the snare. It's all the same, in the best way. And at the risk of sounding corny, I think it speaks to the universal spirit of music.

Mr. Kevin D. has helped me immensely. From the first lesson I have learned a lot about correct setup and the audition process. It's clear that Mr. Kevin D. has a large well of knowledge and is very capable of teaching it. Not only does he teach, but also provides any materials for furthering the education.
