About Me

My Approach

Music has something to offer every student no matter how young or how old. Learning to play an instrument involves more than simply learning to play a handful of pieces. Piano study trains the whole person: the eyes, the ears, the hands and the imagination. From the beginner to the advanced, the career-minded student to the hobbyist, making music enriches us all. Whatever your goals, there is a place for you in my Lakewood piano studio.

My Musical Story

Carole began piano study at age five and continued for 17 years. Lakewood piano teacher Carole Tillotson graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX with a Bachelors in Music Education, majoring in piano, theory, and composition. As a graduate assistant in theory at Indiana University, Carole also studied harp and piano.

Carole taught the Yamaha Music Course for four- to seven-year olds in San Antonio for eight years. Eventually, Carole owned and operated seven Yamaha schools in Houston, Austin, and San Antonio and was a member of the Curriculum Development Committee for Yamaha International. Upon moving to California, Carole started developing the MAKE MUSIC courses for four- to seven-year olds. During the early 80s Carole taught teacher training seminars in the MAKE MUSIC method at the University of Denver and throughout California. In 1988, Carole published her piano method “More Than Piano” for 7-year olds and older children.
