CMP Music Studio currently serves the South Bay & specializes in Private Piano and Music Theory Instruction to students of all ages and levels. Each lesson is customized to meet the individual's needs.
I have a passion for music and have been teaching and performing for the past 20 years. My training consists of years of Private Piano and Vocal Instruction from my mentor, David Graham and Music Theory education from my music professor, Dr. Ollie Powers. During my spare time, I sing lead and play keyboards in a cover band called Carol and the Time Travelers. We cover music from the 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's to current and perform throughout the South Bay and OC.
I can teach at my location in Gardena or travel to your home. If you have any questions or want to schedule your first lesson, I can be reached at 310-344-6216 or send me an email from the contact page.
Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you!
Carol is a gifted and talented pianist and vocalist. She has the gift of moving hearts through her performances. She is also a great teacher as she always strives to get to the next level herself. She is sensitive, patient, caring, experienced and generous with her knowledge.
David Graham, Pianist/Vocalist/Instructor
It is our pleasure to recommend Carol, who has been such a wonderful, trustworthy and patient piano instructor for our children. Carol encourages and works with our children to help them appreciate the art of music. She challenges them and introduces them to new and exciting music, which motivates our kids to continue to learn. The potential of our children has never shown through with our previous instructor. We are glad to have her teaching our children.

Carol studied with me at Ventura College and was consistently a top performer! She showed a solid grasp of all the ingredients of music.
Dr. Ollie Powers, Ventura College Music Professor
Ms. Carol is a wonderful teacher and person whom my
three children ages 13, 11 and 9 adores. She makes the lessons
fun for the kids by getting to know them and finding songs that
fit their interests. She's also so thoughtful to remember their
birthdays and making them feel special. She develops
relationships with the kids rather than just teach.
She is also very accommodating to our schedule.
Sandra and Pat Chaichan, Parents
I have known Carol for over 3 decades; mainly as a friend, but also as a contributor to my music. Carol displayed her wonderful musical sensibility to my songs by providing her vocal and keyboard talents. As a piano instructor, she is extremely patient with her students - making them feel at ease. She encourages her students to succeed. She is passionate about music and she is committed to providing the very best for her students.
