History

In 1996, Carina Brown started off as “Carinas Musici” at the local school, Hopefield High School (musici meaning musicians in Latin). There were not more than 20 music students initially, but numbers grew each year. In 2003, parents in the nearby town heard of the success of her students and the quality of her teaching, and have asked her to expand her teaching area.
