Summer Session and a
BRAND NEW Academic YEAR - 2022-2023
A HUGE thanks to our music-family
who made it through all the challenges that
the pandemic has been bringing us.
Bravo to Parents and Students -
you are SuperHeroes!
Friends of The Music Studio enjoy virtual 'outings', like Concert Club (all ages), Cocktails and Keys (over 21 only), and other special events around the Puget Sound as a great way to make new friends, hear great music, and have fascinating conversations with other interested music-lovers. We love to 'ZOOM' and keep our music-family connected!

Carol is available for performances, as well as accompaniment and coaching for auditions, recitals, and adjudications. Additionally, she is honored to provide pre-recorded or live piano or organ music for your special event.
Students of the Music Studio also have the opportunity to perform virtually or live in several all-Studio events and three recitals throughout the year. Collaboration and community are key to fostering confidence and success. Students not only find it fun to share their music, but they bring so many smiles to their listeners with their gift of music!
