Carolyn is very dedicated and detailed with her teaching and exercises. She cares so much! She is sure to hit every question and concern and skillfully notices areas of improvement. I came out with way more than I expected!

Carolyn is an amazing teacher! As a beginning singer, she knows how to tailor lessons exactly to my needs. She does a spectacular job at accommodating the rock music style of singing I use in my song writing, recording, and performances, and is always clear about what's working for me and what I can improve, and how.

Furthermore, she has a strong song-writing and production background and has acted as a producer of sorts in the best way possible, challenging me to work outside of my comfort zone in order to help me package the music I've written into the best songs they could ever be.

She really knows what she is doing, is extremely personable, and I highly recommend her for anything music-related!

Carolyn was fantastic. She was very focused on the voice and helping me find mine. I sang in college and for quite a while in my adult life in choirs both classical and jazz groups and she helped me to start the path of finding out what my voice really sounds like.
I had a fabulous time for the time I spent in New York studying with her.

Carolyn is friendly, takes the lesson seriously and she explains herself very well. She's also very patient and really tries to make the lesson fun. Her high energy attitude really keeps the session moving and the time flew by. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Carolyn was a tremendous teacher. I just wanted to understand the basics and she was able to provide an excellent foundation. I think that it's likely that I'm much (much) older than the usual student that's interested in tap, and Carolyn managed my own limitations with skill and good humor. Oh, and besides being a great teacher, she's an amazing tap dancer!

Having just started to learn piano, I'd recommend Carolyn as one of the best teachers ever! She simply makes learning an instrument fun and 3 months in our home is now filled with music! You can feel your improving with every lesson.

I didn't leave Carolyn much time, but she was able to come up with dance choreography video lessons for me and my wife to use for our first dance. It was exactly what I was asking. Great work!

Carolyn is truly an amazing person and acting coach. I was beginning to think that I was too old to pursue my passion of becoming an actor. However, after a few lessons with Carolyn I believe that age is truly just a number and as long as one is dedicated, believes in themselves and keeps there eye on the prize their is no cut off when it comes to attaining ones dreams. Carolyn takes pride in her work and will steer you in the right direction.

Carolyn put together a dance routine for my mother and I to dance to at my wedding reception. It was a 4 song mix, which she researched and put together moves that were easy and unique to the songs. My mom and I had a blast learning them and dancing to them, and everyone at the reception was quite impressed! It was definitely a huge hit! I also need to add that this was all done on short notice with a very quick turnaround. Carolyn is a professional who cares!

Thank you Carolyn!

Never saw someone so talented as a performer be as talented as a teacher. People respond so well to her. Her skill as well as training makes her one of the best upcoming people in the business.

She really brought out the best in me

Carolyn is an excellent teacher -- as a parent I would recommend her to anybody who is looking for a kind, fun and very skilled voice/piano teacher. Carolyn is all of these things plus more. What I really like about her, besides that she is very knowledgable and amazingly talented, is that she is always happy and cheerful! Olivia loves to go to her lessons and she learned so much during her time with Carolyn.

Carolyn moves at a great pace and is extremely helpful. I especially love when we practice rhythm on a piece of music!

Carolyn is awesome. I love everything about our lessons. Things that I wasn't 100% clear on before, I now feel confident about. Something about the way she teaches theory makes it accessible and simple.

Carolyn's class is awesome. Nothing but good things to say, really. I feel, already, as if I’m more qualified to work with music. Carolyn broke everything down very simply and straight forward, with patience and ease and made it so easy to follow along. I really do love working with her. Carolyn is great!

Carolyn gave me a solid, accessible foundation of theory which I could directly apply to my audition situations. Instead of panicking when I get a piece of new music, I now see it as a treasure trove of information I now have the key to unlock. Thanks to her, I am an empowered actor, and that’s always a good thing!

My daughter adores Carolyn, as do I. She is incredibly knowledgeable and a true jack of all trades--we recently started coming for lessons 2x a week because of how much she has to offer. Madison has grown so much as an actress/singer in the last 3 months since they started working together and I know that's not by sheer coincidence. Carolyn is worth every penny. Thank you Carolyn for all your hard work and dedication, and for being such a great role model. Maddie and I can't wait to see you on Broadway soon!
