Caroline Spurry BMus PGCE


Caroline began her musical career at the age of seven, learning viola and violin in her primary school with an organisation similar to Music for Life. A lifelong passion for music-making was born, and lessons on the piano soon followed. Caroline went on to study Music GCSE and A Level, then for a Bachelor of Music degree at Royal Holloway University of London where she specialised in ensemble performance, playing with a piano quintet. She later completed a PGCE at Liverpool Hope University, researching, in particular, aspects of music education and the importance music can bring to a child’s whole life. Caroline has been teaching piano and violin for a number of years and enjoys the success her pupils gain both in ABRSM examinations and in their love of music-making. Her approach to teaching involves nurturing musicality as well as encouraging correct technique and a solid grounding in theory of music. She continues to make music, playing viola in The Lydian Ensemble and Fiddlesticks String Quartet, and singing in the chamber choir The Lydian Singers.
