Piano is a great way to experience music. It is a great way for kids to learn to express thenselves while creating. I encourage the skills of learning music to be adapted for all of children’s activities and for them to grow with an ability to use music to expand creativity.

Carolyn is a Grade A instructor, mentor, and guide for all things tuba, piano, audition preparation, and music theory! In my experience studying with her, she is patient, kind, helpful, knowledgeable, and all around a wonderful teacher! I would highly recommend to musicians of any age.
