Instructor

Mrs. Carroll has a love for all things music. In addition to singing and directing, she has also been teaching piano for 20+ years. She has enjoyed watching the lightbulb come on as students turn the corner from just playing notes to playing music. She has taught all ages from 5 to 65 and knows how to adapt to different learning styles. She also enjoys teaching people how to support their love of singing through accompanying themselves on the piano. This specific piano course is her favorite to teach as it allows the singer to more fully express themselves with very little piano skills, which results in a very enjoyable musical experience in a short period of time.
