I have recently graduated from Florida State University with a masters in cello performance. Before that I received my bachelors from California State University Sacramento. Teaching since high school, I have worked with all ages and abilities. Cello is beautiful and I want to encourage people to get to play such a wonderful instrument.
I have performed with numerous symphonies in California, Florida, and Michigan. in 2015 I won the CSUS Concerto Competition with Lalo's Cello Concerto.
I worked with the primary cello instructor of FSU, Gregory Sauer and I would teach students at the college level with his guidance.
I worked with beginning cello students to teach them technique, reading notation, and musicality.

Carrie is an excellent cello teacher. She works well with both younger and older students. She is caring and positive in guiding students' learning.
Great teacher and wonderful collaborator. Very organized. California misses her, and Michigan is very fortunate to have her!
I have had the absolute privilege of being a student of Carrie's for about 3 years (until she moved). Carrie's style of teaching is well balanced with music knowledge, patience, discipline, thoughtfulness, and enthusiasm. I highly recommend Carrie as a cello teacher and only wish she could still be mine!+ Read More
Wonderful teacher for younger or older students. Carrie is encouraging and determined to give you the help, skills and advice you need to be successful. More than that Carrie is a born teacher! I highly recommend her!
Carrie is a wonderful teacher! She is able to assess performance and posture issues quickly and provide a clear explanation for improvement. I highly recommend studying with her!
I loved taking cello lessons with Carrie. She was always patient and encouraging with me and did a wonderful job working out problems I had with the music. Carrie was one of the reasons I kept with cello for as long as I did!
