I teach beginners to advanced players. Students will focus on the fundamentals of horn playing, move on to solo and ensemble repertoire, then advanced repertoire and orchestral excerpts for the more advanced player. I can prepare students for both the ABRSM and RCM horn exams. All horn students are encouraged to participate in their school ensemble or one of the area's youth orchestra programs.
As an RCM Beginning Piano Specialist, I am happy to take beginning to intermediate level piano students. Piano students are encouraged to take part in Royal Conservatory Exams when they are ready. As students advance they will be advised to look for a more suitable teacher, for which I am happy to make recommendations.
Music Theory Tutoring
I am well versed in all levels of the ABRSM, Royal Conservatory, Certificate of Merit, and Advanced Placement requirements for music theory and ear training. I am also an RCM Certified Teacher for Elementary and Intermediate Theory Levels. In lessons we will focus on the fundamentals of music theory and how it is applied to performance, as well as exam preparation.
”We are very fortunate to have found Carrie for our son's theory teacher. She is naturally musical, professional and is an excellent communictor. Our son enjoys her classes and has learned much from her. Carrie is also a good planner. We just needed to give her our goals and she developed a detailed teaching plan to achieve them.”
