Carol left in 2022 to pursue her own career in music. Since then, there has been a huge demand for our Intensive ABRSM Grade 5 Theory Courses. With her highly successful exam pass rate, she rejoined our team in 2024 to teach theory.
Based in the UK, Carol qualified as a teacher in 2007 and started her career teaching drama to young children all over Manchester (UK). She then progressed to running city centre college courses in TV and Film Production, and Music.

A naturally dynamic and enthusiastic online theory teacher, Carol’s energy is infectious. She has the teaching skills to find and develop the best in students, inspiring them with confidence.


“Carol is an amazing teacher and I’ve learnt so much from her in a relatively short period of time. As a teacher I know how difficult it is to keep things interesting and motivating, Carol is able to do this effortlessly every lesson!”Mike Barton, Valencia, Spain


Carol Hodge’s own music

Singing professionally for over 25 years, Carol has fronted a variety of rock and punk bands since the age of 15. In 2011, singing in a band, she toured the world including sold out theatre shows in Montreal (Canada), Los Angeles (USA), London (UK) and Sydney (Australia).
With a keen and unstoppable interest in music from an early age. At 8 years old Carol had already taught herself to read music and play basic piano.
Saving her pocket money for a whole year to buy a full sized keyboard, her parents were convinced of her dedication to music. They booked piano lessons for her, through which she worked her way through the ABRSM piano and theory Grades.

“I walked by during the lesson and Eli grinned a huge grin and flashed me a thumb’s up. He is really loving working with you. He told me a couple of weeks ago, ‘It’s so great to have a professional musician for a teacher!’ “Jewel Alvis, Italy

Carol continues to sing and play piano live around the UK and the world on a regular basis, performing solo under her own name and in several other bands. She has a fondness for long country walks, cats and Earl Grey tea.
