Carolyn earned her license as a Kindermusik educator in the spring of 2007. She grew up singing with her family and various choirs and ensembles for church and community events. In high school, she spent 3 summers touring with Highest Praise from Ozark Christian College in Joplin, MO. Later as a student at Ozark, she was active in the Concert and Chapel Choirs as well as travelling on weekends with a small ensemble.
Carolyn's first experience with Kindermusik was at Music To Grow By. As a mom, she attended classes with her older son and recognized the value of early childhood learning wrapped up in the magic of music and movement. Carolyn thoroughly enjoys sharing that magic of making music with young families.
Carolyn is very active in church and leads the 1st and 2nd graders on Sundays at Cedar Ridge Christian Church. When she isn't at the studio or teaching off-site classes at Chapman Child Learning Center you will likely find her volunteering as a den leader for her son's Cub Scout pack.
Carolyn enjoys baking, reading and scrapbooking but spends most every available moment with her husband Ben and sons Jonah and Jaxon. Carolyn's sunny disposition and experience with young families make her a great addition to the Music To Grow By studio.
