Composer/Arranger/CNR Publishing

Carole's experiences as a classical performer and studio musician have given her a unique perspective when it comes to composition and arranging. She has been published since 2000 with Latham Music and CNR Publishing, and her library includes multiple chamber music collections, along with string orchestra and cello ensemble compositions. As a professional, she wants gig music that is clear and easy to read but also interesting to play. From years of teaching, she knows how important it is to give students something that they can enjoy playing, but also makes them sound good, regardless of their level. With these concepts in mind, she has created a popular library of compositions and arranged collections. Her "Collected Quartets" vol 1 and "Christmas Traditions" vol 1 have sold over 6,000 copies combined. Her string orchestra compositions have been on Ohio and Texas festival lists. From the tab above, you can check out all of her published materials, many of which include audio files.
