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 University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Additionally, Carole furthered her training by enrolling in study and teaching in 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. She is currently President of the Suzuki Association of Georgia.

Carole has a passion for helping students develop sound skills and technique while developing a life long love of music. Carole directed a large private Suzuki program, school orchestras, and university classes in St. Louis, MO. After moving to the Atlanta area in 2002, Carole taught middle school orchestra for GCPS 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 once again, on teaching the Suzuki method privately, and through a new after school program at Notre Dame Academy in Duluth, GA.
