Carolyn believes a successful teacher has patience, empathy, enjoyment, and encouragement. She understands each student is different with different needs and desires. She incorporates pieces and activities into the lessons that the students would prefer while still setting a standard for theory, ear training, and technique. She understands learning an instrument is a long and difficult process, and is there to help her students utilize however much time they can offer towards their instrument while maintaining their enjoyment.
