Carla has been teaching piano for over 30 years. Many of those years were spent teaching in Camrose, and she later joined the Leduc School of Music faculty in 2011. A keen musician from an early age, she began her own music studies at the age of 2 and 1/2, and by the age of 16 had completed a Grade 10 Piano Certificate with the Western Board of Music. She has studied with Marlene Nepstad, Joy Berg and Annika Roos, and has studied pedagogy with Dr. Anne Burrows in Edmonton. Since beginning to teach, she has prepared her students for exams and local and provincial festivals, where they typically do well, as Carla always strives to instill and excellence in performance and technique in her students at any age.
