Carrie is passionate about empowering the gift of music to individuals and groups!
I began my business because of my love of music and how I have seen it change people. This work is satisfying when I watch people become involved in music that speaks to them and/or pushes them in new directions. When teaching piano lessons to children, I become inspired by the ones who gain self confidence by learning this new skill and making music come alive. When leading groups of children and/or adults in music making experiences, I am inspired by the smiles on their faces and energy they put into the group effort. Finally, when working with special needs children, I am inspired by the force of human determination as they gain even the smallest steps in their ability to function better than they previously had. I began my business because it is also my passion.
