Caroline studied at the Royal Academy of Music with Janet Craxton and Michael Dobson. She worked as a freelance oboist for many years, performing with English National Opera, the English Chamber Orchestra and the London Concert Orchestra, and was involved in productions with the Royal Shakespeare Company including the first London run of Les Miserables. As a member of the Marwood Ensemble, Caroline toured the UK and performed at the Wigmore Hall, on the South Bank and on Radio Three. An Open University degree in Natural Sciences eventually led to a significant career change, and Caroline is now Head of Biology at St Olave’s Grammar School in Orpington Kent. Music is however still an important part of her life; she performs regularly with several chamber music groups and has played principle oboe in Bromley Symphony Orchestra for over 10 years.
