I have been a professional musician for many years, and recently decided to devote my time and energy to teaching. There is no greater joy than to watch my students succeed and aspire for a life long appreciation of music. My instructing plan specializes in patiently motivating new musicians, as will as inspired adults. My teaching plans are flexible - if music theory is the student's desire, I can modify their lesson focus. If performance is their goal, my experience can challenge them to be the best they can be.
My Musical Education Background
I completed a Bachelors of Music from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My graduate work was completed at Northwestern University, Evanston Ill. While in Chicago, I performed with the Civic Orchestra as well as the local opera.

Both of my girls, 5 and 7, have been taking lessons from Caroline for 8 months now and I'm very impressed. They had taken lessons before with another music teacher and had developed a lot of bad habits that Caroline broke. They both play beautifully and I owe it all to Caroline. She is patient and kind, and stern when appropriate. She is classically trained and I like that she doesn't just teach them how to play piano, she also teaches them music theory and teaches them to read music. She is very professional. I never have to worry about her saying anything inappropriate about her political or religious beliefs. What a breath of fresh air.
