Hi, I grew up in Northern California in a family of Texan musicians, who knew from the start I'd be a musical trouble maker. From my early days of Suzuki violin, to marching band, and then to bluegrass and Billie Holiday, I make myself musically at home wherever there's a groove. Now a graduate of Berklee College of Music, and an active part of Berklee's American Roots program, I'm a recipient of the Fletcher Bright Scholarship Award, a 2015 Freshgrass Fiddle Competition finalist, and two-time participant in the Acoustic Music Seminar at the Savannah Music Festival. Most recently, my project The Page Turners has been given the 2016 Freshgrass Best Duo Award. I've performed widely at festivals across the United States such as Grey Fox, the Three Sisters Festival, Berkeley Bluegrass Festival and Newport Folk Festival, as well as endeavors abroad with the Nairobi Symphony. I've performed with many beloved artists, such as Bruce Molsky, Aoife O'Donovan, Joe Walsh, and Darol Anger. I have been teaching all ages and abilities for 8 years, all over the country. My favorite things are cooking, two-stepping, and hanging out with dogs. Carolyn is moving to Nashville, TN in 2019.+ Read More
Private Music Lessons at Main Street Music in Tracy, CA
This was my first lesson with the violin. Carolyn was very patient and informative. I'm looking forward to learning more from her!
Carolyn is fun, knows her stuff, and is really respectful of what the student wants to learn!
She is a great teacher and knew where to help me the most. I feel like a better musician after one lesson!
