With over 20 years of music teaching experience, Carolyn has a Music BA (Hons) and a PGCE from Southampton University where she was taught oboe by Andrew Knights and voice by Keith Davis. She worked for 13 years for Hampshire Music Service teaching individuals of all ages and abilities to a high standard as a woodwind teacher, class teacher, singing teacher, as well as conducting and directing large Youth Concert Bands and Orchestras. She also played with Southampton City Orchestra and Southampton Concert Orchestra.
Carolyn, who is originally from Taunton, returned to Somerset in 2015 and started Tone Woodwind Tuition. Through this she teaches at many establishments including Primary, Secondary, and 6th Form, and has a number of adult pupils. Carolyn conducts the UnPhilharmonic Orchestra, part of The Brewhouse Theatre’s Take Part scheme, which brings together adult musicians of all abilities to enjoy making music on a regular basis.
Carolyn loves her work with CYMT and enjoys developing the musical lives of all of the pupils she teaches. Both of her children also attend CYMT and are excited to get out of bed to go there each Saturday morning!
