I offer lessons on piano, oboe and recorder as well as coaching for district and state auditions, and classes for home school students age 5 -17.

Learning an instrument is not always easy of course but then nothing worth doing is ever easy! My challenge is to make the process absorbing, interesting and enjoyable while ensuring they are paced to ability. For that reason all lessons are customized for each student in order to meet individual interests and needs.

I use a variety of teaching techniques and lesson books based on each student’s goals and interest, and work closely with each student in order to help to bring out the best in a fun-filled atmosphere.

I recommend ½ hour lessons for beginning students on all instruments
 at a cost of $30.00 per lesson.
 For intermediate and advanced students ¾ and full hour lessons are recommended
 at a cost of $45.00 and $60.00 respectively.

 Payment for lessons is made in advance at the beginning of each month.

Since your lesson time is reserved specially for you, I require 24 hours notice of cancellation. Every effort will be made to schedule a makeup lesson in the event of cancellation.

Please contact me for more information and to schedule a free introductory lesson.

“Carol has offered my children the most high quality and inspiring musical education. Both are extremely motivated to practice and returned from their lessons full of enthusiasm and determination to master the next pieces they had been given to practice. Their inherent drive to progress and refine the music they had worked on with Carol was a true testament to her incredible warmth, inspiration and giftedness as a teacher. We are so grateful for the opportunity to continue our musical journey with such a multi-talented and devoted teacher.”
