Here are some comments from my new friends at Wallowa (Oregon) Dulcimer Camp, 2016:
"What I liked best at camp? Classes with Carol -- because she has a good method for teaching a new song."
"...excellent teaching skills and music ability."
"Carol's method for learning new songs and working on hard parts was very helpful. Going over recommended fingers to get one through a song very good."
"I liked the way Carol broke down the parts, and gave noodling time. I really appreciate the teaching strategies of isolating difficult parts and playing them repeatedly. I loved the way Carol taught us to analyze the music first!"
"You are a fantastic teacher and performer. I felt very comfortable in your intermediate class. The pace was perfect for me! [My husband] noticed immediately the improvement and confidence in my playing."
"Thanks for spending a week with us at the Wallowas. In addition to your great workshops I will always remember you wonderful smile and laugh. I love playing all the songs you taught us and exploring your books."
"To date no instructor has had the degree of positive effect on our playing that you have. Your music and personality really spoke to us. I have discovered the joy of fingerpicking and how it opens up a whole new dimension to the Mountain Dulcimer. Our daughter is a new dulcimer player and we gave her your books and she has also fallen in love with fingerpicking and your Manx tunes."
These comments are from Melodies & Musings in Alabama (2014):
"...thank you so much for the intermediate classes you taught. I really enjoyed them and felt I learned a great deal. Your classes were fun as well as very rewarding! And............your performance was so exciting and your skills are amazing!"
"Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talents with us in Guntersville! You have forever friends here!"
"Trip to the Isle of Man class was [the highlight of my festival experience.] Loved the interaction of dulcimer and history."
"I thoroughly enjoyed this past weeks dulcimer time with you in Guntersville, AL. It was the best workshop I have ever been a part of. Thanks so much for sharing your time and talent with us."
