Enjoy. Inspire. create

Carly knows very well how to pay different level of attention to each of them and especially she has enormous level of patience. The kids felt that they achieved something when they finished their first recital. I also have to mention that Carly has been always on time and communicates promptly if there is a change in the schedule. She has been teaching my kids for about 3 years and based on my experience I highly recommend Carly as the Piano tutor for kids."

Carly is very talented and makes all her lessons fun, to keep my daughter always interested. She is very flexible about timings and easily reachable on text and email."

Carly has been playing piano since she was five. She was very heavily involved in music growing up. Originally from Fairfax, Virginia, Carly sang in the Fairfax Choral Society for 13 years, participated in ACDA National Honor Choirs, competed in local piano events, and even played in the drumline for her high school's marching band. She is currently both the organist and choir pianist for her congregation in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Carly currently sings in the North Carolina Master Choral, the resident choir of the North Carolina Symphony. In June of 2017, she made her debut performance at at Carnegie Hall, NYC, with a selective group of singers from the Chorale. 


Carly has a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a concentration in Piano from Meredith College. She values the importance of education, and studied piano with Dr. Kent Lyman during her time at Meredith College. Carly was a member of the Meredith Chorale, as well as one of 4 players in the Meredith Piano ensemble, Octavia. She currently participates in Octavia as a post-grad member. Carly also actively plays piano in the community. She has accompanied Saint Andrew's yearly Christmas program, filled in at Macedonia United Methodist Church, and played piano for many elementary and middle school choirs in Wake County.

She is always looking for ways to further her education and help her become a better teacher/business owner. She is an active member of the Cary/Apex Piano Teacher's Association, the Raleigh Piano Teacher's Association, NC Music Teacher's Association, and Music Teacher's National Association. Realizing the demand for convenient, comfortable in-home music lessons, Carly has teachers working in all areas of Wake County. There are 225+ students taught by Carolina Music School teachers currently, and the company is growing at a very fast rate!
