Carole studied violin and piano at the Royal Academy of Music and after graduating, taught violin as a peripatetic teacher in South London and worked as a freelance violinist in orchestras and with her quartet in the South of England for over 20 years.

She then retrained as a primary school teacher and taught UKS2 for several years, before being asked to take on the role as the school music teacher.

Discovering the Kodály approach has transformed her teaching and she is loving developing the music curriculum and seeing the joy that the children are experiencing in their musical journeys.
