Born and raised in New York, Carolyn began working professionally at 8 years old and has since appeared on stage, in national commercials, recorded voiceovers, and booked principal roles in both film and television. A graduate of the Boston Conservatory at Berklee College of Music (BFA Musical Theatre, emphasis in directing), Carolyn is a veteran member of SAG/AFTRA/AEA. In her spare time, Carolyn has always loved working with people who have a passion for the arts. Her impressive client roster ranges from children who wish to explore the arts to adult celebrities and Broadway professionals. Whether it’s in a classroom, at a dance studio, or sitting at the piano, Carolyn has worn the many hats of acting coach, voice teacher, dance instructor, music theory tutor, piano teacher, and college audition coach to name a few. Getting cast in Broadway shows, winning first place in national dance competitions, receiving perfect scores on vocal/piano NYSSMA solos, and being accepted to some of the most competitive college programs in the nation are just a few of her clients’ many accomplishments. Influenced by country music artists like Carrie Underwood and Faith Hill, along with pop icons Kelly Clarkson and Adele, Miller has used her big, powerful voice to create her own style that captures the true essence of country-pop. She released her debut EP in 2018 independently, which peaked during pre-order at No. 7 on iTunes Country charts. Since then, Miller has opened for artists such as Chase Rice, Ashley McBryde, Walker Hayes, and most recently, kicked off NY’s Country 94.7 Stars and Strings event at the Barclays Center starring Sam Hunt, Dustin Lynch, Chris Janson, Runaway June, and more. Miller has been seen on an impressive list of outlets including Hollywood Life, CMT, Taste of Country, Sounds Like Nashville, Country Rebel, The Boot and her songs/videos have been added into rotation on Music Choice and The Country Network. Splitting residency between New York and Nashville, Miller has already begun to make a name for herself in Music City, being tapped "One to Watch" by the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) and a Next Up Now artist by CMT. Despite the circumstances of this unprecedented time, Miller still made “2020 an impressive year" (NYCountry Swag). Her first release of the year ["Ain't About That"] reached 130,000+ streams and was added into rotation on Music Choice Pop & Country Channel. The song was also named Country Line "Single of the Week" on Chris Country Radio (UK), voted fan favorite on 104.7 WAYZ and was featured on several media outlets including Digital Journal, Celeb Secrets, Music Mayhem Magazine, NYCountry Swag, among others. Miller followed that up with "ALL IN", which received support from Radio Disney Country (song of the week + added into new music rotation), NY's Country 94.7 (WNSH), CMT, The Morning Hangover, Spotify's New Music Nashville editorial playlist, and more. The track also achieved 100,000+ streams to date. Driven by her passion for performing, Miller has turned to livestreaming during her time quarantined, delivering over 100 livestream concerts for various radio stations, media outlets, music venues, and even (virtually) hosting and performing in various high profile events and online festivals. Miller sang the national anthem for the NY Mets and hosted (as well as performed on) both of Music Mayhem's virtual country festivals alongside Billy Ray Cyrus, Walker Hayes, Tenille Townes, and more. Additionally, her live acoustic cover of "When You Say Nothing At All'' was featured on Country Rebel, amassing nearly 500,000 views. Miller’s vivacious and "enthusiastic personality" (Sounds Like Nashville) has drawn in followers of all ages -- from all over the world -- and there’s no sign of her slowing down. “Covid can’t stop the music. It can’t stop our passion. It is our duty as artists to spread joy and love, especially in the darkest times. Music is needed now more than ever.”

Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.
could not have been a better start to my lessons!
My first lesson with Carolyn was very positive. She quickly assessed where I was and started from that point so we didn't waste time. She showed great passion for songwriting and a genuine interest in my development.
