About Me

My goal for my students is for them to become musically competent so that they will have a lasting love of music and, after completing lessons, be able to play for their own enjoyment. I value learning differences and plan individual programs for each student.

Education & Background

Bachelor of Music in Piano Pedagogy from the University of Louisville as well as many classes with pedagogues Naomi Oliphant and David Kaiserman. Carol is a nationally certified teacher through MTNA. She is a past president of the Greater Louisville Music Teachers Association and the Kentucky Music Teachers Association. Currently she is competition chair for the MTNA Southern Division competitions. She has been a judge for GLMTA, KMTA, National Guild of Piano Teachers and National Federation of Music Clubs.


What I Teach

My programs include reading skills, sight reading, technique and theory to give students a good, basic understanding of music. I strive for musical playing which is accomplished through these skills. I select music for each individual student according to their abilities.
