Making music and Teaching music has always been a huge part of my life! Music has brought such joy to my personal life and the lives of my students and their friends and family. I teach music because it is such a wonderful experience for everyone involved from the practice room to the performance. I hold a Degree in Music Education from Kent State Univ. I have conducted both chorus and orchestra, established small singing groups and founded the Strings of Gold. I promised my own children that music would bring adventures, and they are all performing throughout the world today. Many of my private students experience new friendships at music camps, orchestras, bands, churches, and find a wonderful purpose in school through their participation in music programs. Many of my adult students have enjoyed the accomplishment of playing an instrument and sharing their music with friends and family. I am excited that you are interested in taking music lessons! I look forward to sharing your musical adventure .

Cara is an absolutely amazing instructor! As an 'older' beginning student, I was treated with kindness and sincerity. Her patience with my ineptitude made me feel like a pro, rather than a beginner. She was able to listen to what I wished to accomplish and in a few short months, she delivered just that and more. Thank you, Cara!

Cara is very easy to be with. I felt relaxed and that she really was interested in giving me the experience I was looking for. In one lesson, she helped me learn things that will insure my interest in the piano for many years.

Cara was our children's instructor for 10-1/2 years. When she and her husband moved to Florida, students and their families were sad. Many of us see one another from time to time and we all miss Cara. She is a wonderful teacher! Exceptional!

Cara was wonderful with my son. He has aspergers and she was very patient with him. She was able to connect with him and make it a great deal of fun for him.

My daughter loved Mrs. Arnold and made wonderful progress with violin. She was very organized. We did concerts several times a year. She also had her join a youth orchestra to broaden her skills.

Mrs. Arnold was very positive and encouraging. Punctual for lesson times. Challenged my students & provided opportunity to excel and become proficient. Encouraged students to not only practice and play well in self-discipline, but also in service to others.

Cara is one of the most talented and incredible music teachers that I have ever known. She taught two of my children for the past several years - my son studied violin and my daughter studied piano. Cara has an incredible gift to understand how children learn and to encourage their confidence. She personally helped my son to not only do well, but to excel by becoming concert-master, winning a concerto competition and to gain entrance into a very acclaimed string music program.

It is one thing to simply teach and quite another to develop children into talented musicians. Cara understands children, she is extremely knowledgeable about music and incredibly talented at being more than just a teacher, She provides not only a lesson but helps children to see the possibilities of music and was a tremendous help to me to better understand how to guide my children's musical aspirations. I consider her one of the most talented individuals that I have ever known and would not hesitate to have my children enrolled as one of her students.

Hi, Three of our children took violin lessons with Cara Arnold for 4-5 years. She was an amazing violin teacher. She understood how to tailor her lessons to each individual child and was adept at finding music pieces that were challenging but also fun for the kids to learn. She has an enthusiasm for violin that she shared with our children and was always encouraging to them- but was also able to toe the line or ask for more when needed. I highly recommend her as a violin teacher. She is thoroughly knowledgeable in her subject and has years of experience with all ages. She also completely enjoys her job and it shows.
