Carol Pederson (Carol Pederson Music Scholarship for violin, viola, cello and string bass)
Carol Pederson was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. She was a graduate of Capital University with a B.M.E., violin being her major instrument. Graduate work was done at Central Michigan University and Kent State University, where she studied with Mr. Ma Si Hon. Teaching private violin lessons was her first love and she adopted the Suzuki approach of teaching. The Pedersons moved to Ashland in 1987 when she began teaching, using the Ashland University facilities. After 10 years she moved her studio and created “Talent Unlimited,” a private preparatory conservatory in Ashland, Ohio. Mrs. Pederson realizes the need for financial assistance through her own experiences as a student and teacher.
