Thanks to 25+ years of violin-playing experience and 6+ years of violin instruction, Carrie is well-equipped to help students at any age or stage. If you're seeking violin lessons for adults, kids, or any age in between, you're in the right place.

Point Loma Violin is Carrie’s second private studio; her first one was located in Austin, TX, where she taught 30+ students year-round. Throughout her career, Carrie has taught in a variety of contexts.

Carrie is dedicated to ongoing training in the Suzuki Method, is an active Suzuki member, and holds certificates in Every Child Can! and Early Childhood Education (ECE) courses. Currently, she is training towards violin book certificates to use with her youngest students. At the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Carrie earned a Bachelor of Music Education (Strings K–12) with Honors.

Carrie is patient, good-natured, and caring. She has the ability to connect, motivate, and encourage her students. Her breadth of musical knowledge is impressive, and I would often leave lessons with a desire to research and explore the topics she would introduce during the lesson.
