Title:  Student Testimonial 2008
Testimonial:  I took lessons from Mrs. Bev Carroll for 9 years, during which time she instilled in me a love and passion for music. She gave me many opportunities to improve my performance skills during those years by encouraging me to participate in recitals, contests, Pianorama, and Guild auditions every year. Mrs. Carroll also did an excellent job preparing me to major in music in college. The knowledge of theory I received from her prepared me well for music theory classes. She prepared me so well in the area of technique that I was able to pass the technique test my first semester. Mrs. Carroll has a passion for teaching and is dedicated to her job. Zayley Penner 2008

Title:  Student Testimonial 2009
Testimonial:  "The time I spent under Miss Bev's studio was extremely enjoyable for me as I pursued my study of piano and I am very grateful I had the opportunity of studying under such a great teacher. I greatly appreciated Miss Bev's kindness and personable teaching style and how she challenged me to grow as a musician. She encouraged me in many areas of playing piano and would also help me in areas other than just playing. She exposed me to many different styles of music and piano which made me a very versatile musician. She helped me with writing and composing as well and even helped me to learn improvisational playing. This was very encouraging for me as I started to grow as a young musician because it opened up many other opportunities for me on the piano. The music theory I learned from her was also incredibly helpful and it was exactly what I needed to prepare me for a college level of piano and theory. Theory would have been such a difficult aspect of college music major if I had not been so thoroughly exposed to it by Miss Bev." o Callum Sears 2009

Title:  Testimonial 2005
Testimonial:  o I was privileged to take piano lessons from Mrs. Beverly Carroll for 10 years. Her passion and love for music is contagious. Within those 10 years, I was exposed to in-depth technique and theory training as well as multiple recitals to build up my confidence as a performer. She is heavily involved in the musical community as a teacher and involves her students in yearly competitions such as Guild Auditions and Pianorama. The most important aspect that I wish to highlight about Mrs. Carroll, is her uncanny ability to listen to her students' preferences and, most at her own time expense, search out pieces to support and foster the interest of that student. She truly is an impressive and dedicated piano teacher. Rachel Lynn Fox 2005
