About this pro

I have been a public school music teacher for 33 years. Currently I am a Assistant Professor of Pratice in Music at Moravian College. My forte instruments are violin, viola and clarinet.  I love to teach music and see my students excel and acquire the passion for music that I share.  I have learned many different approaches to teaching to help my students progress.  In addition I love jazz and am able to teach my students the elements of improvisation and introduce them to many alternative techniques.

I enjoy being a part of the growth of learning along with my students.

  • Julius Lenhart

    Excellent clarinet teacher, progressed my granddaughter exponentially where she is reading and playing musical notation and already plays a couple songs in as little as 12 weeks at 30 mins: per session. Thanks Carole for your dedication toward your students.

  • Julius Lenhart

    Her knowledge of the the clarinet parts, specifically the names of each part and handling of the instrument during assembly, hand position and fingering, breath control while playing. Mostly the positive reinforcement and encouragement she gave my granddaughter while teaching.

  • Linda Z.

    Invested in each student and personalizes the lessons to fit the child. Fun to work with and I have seen great progress with my child.
