Crescendo Suzuki Studio of Bedford, MA

Cultivating Ability Joyfully

Carlough Faulkner-Carroll -

Director and Violin Instructor

Carlough Faulkner-Carroll discovered her love of teaching when she began tutoring younger violin students as a high school student. After 15 years teaching full-time, she still gets just as excited every time a student gets the shining look that says "I've got it!"

A sought after clinician who is known for her ability to connect with children, Carlough strives to help students reach their full potential and to enjoy the process with them. She is on on the faculty of the New England Suzuki Institute and the New Jersey Suzuki Workshop, and has taught at numerous other workshops.

In addition to performance degrees from New England Conservatory and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she was a winner of the School of Music Concerto Competition, Carlough has pursued long-term Suzuki teacher training with Teri Einfeldt as well as short courses with Ronda Cole, Edmund Sprunger, and Ed Kreitman among others. She also has received training from Dorothy Jones in Suzuki Early Childhood Education, a curriculum for newborns through three year olds.

Carlough has been very active in the Boston area Suzuki community since 2001, when she first joined the board of the Massachusetts chapter of the Suzuki Association of the Americas. She has served as the director of the Massachusetts Suzuki Festival, then as volunteer coordinator, and recently as the president of this regional organization.

As a soloist, Carlough has performed the concertos of Barber and Sibelius among others, and has performed many recitals and chamber concerts. At the moment, her performing is focused on Hungarian and Transylvanian village music. She resides and teaches in Bedford, MA, with her husband and children, where she gets inspiration daily from her 40 students.
