Carolyn’s foray into the entertainment industry began with dance lessons at the age of 3 and she has been classically trained in voice for 10 years.
Her early aptitude for performing led to roles in musicals such as Annie, The Music Man, 42nd Street and The Sound of Music but her skills as a vocal coach were always in demand. This prompted Carolyn to move into the production side of theatre.

Shows such as Joseph and The Wiz followed and when approached by an interstate theatre company to be on their production team for Chicago, distance proved no barrier. With coaching via skype and flying in as required for master classes Carolyn was able to live up to her motto….”Find A Way”.

Carolyn teaches voice privately and is one of the founding members and lead vocal coaches at Dynamic Performers Australia.
