I am committed to continuing my professional development. I conduct research and attend various courses in order to broaden my musical knowledge and experiences. Here is a list of my qualifications and short courses I have attended. One day I hope to do my PhD and become Dr Carrie, but that's a long way off. Writing an 18,000 word thesis for my Masters degree was incredibly hard. I'm not putting myself through that again in a hurry!
