Carole Kane holds Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees (High Honors) in Music Education from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville. She studied Suzuki violin pedagogy at SIU-E with John Kendall, world-renowned for bringing the Suzuki method to America. She also participated in teacher training with many of the original pioneers in the Suzuki movement, including Anastasia Jemplis of Eastman School of Music, and William Starr of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Additionally, Carole furthered her training by enrolling in study and teaching at Suzuki Institutes across the US, including post-graduate work at Claremont Graduate School, San Francisco State University, and the American Suzuki Institute at Steven’s Point Wi. At several of these institutes, Carole had the opportunity to meet and work personally with Dr. Suzuki. Carole’s Suzuki training is registered with SAA for books 1-8, however, she completed training in books 1-10 through long-term Suzuki teacher training at SIU-E prior to the beginning of official SAA training. Carole is the past President of the Suzuki Association of Georgia.

Carole has a passion for helping students develop sound skills and techniques while developing a lifelong love of music. Carole has directed a large private Suzuki program, was a founding teacher for Parkway School District’s highly acclaimed Suzuki Program and taught university classes in St. Louis, MO. After moving to the Atlanta area in 2002, Carole taught middle school orchestra in Gwinnett County where her students included many All-State Orchestra members, including the All-State concertmaster two years in a row! Carole has retired from the public school system to focus solely on teaching the Suzuki method privately. She is happy to be back in the St. Louis area and looking forward to making new friends while reconnecting with former colleagues.

Carole has performed on violin with many orchestras, including The St. Louis Philharmonic, The Atlanta Community Symphony Orchestra, the Gwinnett Symphony, and Ballet Orchestra.
