Caroline Spaeth

“Caroline is very kind and knows how to motivate a student without being too strict. She has always replied promptly when we had a question. Both my daughter and I know, each and every week, what exactly she is supposed to be practicing and what the expectation is in terms of preparation for the next lesson. We have been extremely happy with our lessons and the tremendous progress that my daughter has made.”

Meet Caroline

  1. How/what age did you start your instrument?
    I had been singing in choruses and playing instruments such as piano and violin from a very young age, but I didn't take up singing seriously until I was in high school! I'm very glad I waited, since learning instruments as a child developed my musical knowledge and made me a better singer!
  2. Did you come from a musical family?
    My parents aren't musical, but my grandmother sang in her church choir and her father played violin.
  3. Best or funniest (or even worst!) musical memory from childhood?
    I met my very best friend at a music camp in seventh grade. We've remained close for all these years!
  4. A highlight or two from your performing career:
    Singing has taken me all over the world, from singing Queen of the Night (The Magic Flute) in Seattle to Gilda (Rigoletto) in Italy.
  5. What do you love about teaching?
    I love helping students find their confidence and new ways to express themselves!
  6. What would you like your students to know about you?
    The studio is YOUR space, where YOUR growth and comfort are the #1 priority.
  7. Can you share a non-musical fun fact about you?
    I love baking and make a fantastic gingerbread.
