Teaching since:


My name is Carolina, but you can call me Lina. I have been playing the piano for 13 years, and it is my passion. My High School didn't have a music program, so I had to take private lessons to enrich my music learning. My piano teacher was my biggest inspiration and the reason why I chose to become a teacher myself. I graduated from Manhattanville College with a Master's in Music Education. While I was in college, my piano skills were polished until I became the musician I am today. The beauty about learning any instrument is that there is no exact finish line. You will always be learning something new, especially when it comes to the piano. There will always be a new challenge, whether it's a new piece you want to learn, or a different technique, it's all up to you. My role as your piano teacher is to facilitate your learning and adjust to what works well for you as a student. I look forward to meeting you and helping you create music :)

I'm new to taking any kind of music lessons and Carolina was so patient with me during each lesson. She answered all of my questions and never got frustrated. Thank you!

Carolina has been an incredible instructor for my children! Both their reading and overall musicanship have flourished since taking lessons own her. She is caring, capable, experienced, and professional.
