Note From Mindy
Welcome to Mindy Carter Music.
As excited as I am to get to know you, your goals, and how I can help you reach your full potential, you should know a little about me too.
A little about myself…
I have been involved in music and dance as early as I can remember. Any opportunity there was for me to perform, I took it! After performing in many musicals, state fairs, talent competitions, Governors School for the Arts, and All State competitions, I went on to major in Vocal Music Education at James Madison University. I had the exciting experience of singing with JMU’s jazz band, performing in JMU musicals, and touring with JMU’s nationally known show choir The Madisonians. During my college summers I worked at various theme parks such as Kings Island and Busch Gardens as a singer/ dancer / vocal captain.
After I completed my bachelors in vocal music education, I went on to perform as a singer/dancer and lead vocalist on many prestigious cruise lines such as: Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Holland America, Cunard, and American Hawaii. I also performed at many 5 star resorts and in the “music town” of Branson, MO. As much as I Ioved performing all over the world, I also loved writing and recording Christian music. My home base was in NYC and and Nashville so I could audition, record songs, and learn about the music industry.
After working with a producer in Atlanta GA, I decided to settle down and make Atlanta my home. My love for God and Christian music led me to begin a career in Worship Leading. My first position was at a small but very spirit filled church called Town Lake Community Church. I then went on to lead worship at North Avenue Presbyterian Church where I helped build the contemporary service. I was also the lead singer for Mindy Carter Jazz, a quartet made of the finest jazz musicians in Atlanta. After taking some time off to start a family, I am now singing and often leading worship at Mount Bethel United Methodist Church. I also sing for many special events around Atlanta and continue to write and record songs, I have learned so much from my experiences and education, and I find it so rewarding when I can help others reach their goals. Which brings me to my love for teaching…
I have had the privilege of teaching private voice and piano lessons for almost 15 years. I love the connections I make with my students and watching them grow into confident and skilled musicians. I began my teaching career at Sandy Spring Music, where I also led many musical theater workshops and showcases. After 10 years at SSM, I am so excited to now be teaching from my own home studio. A place you will feel comfortable and confident as you take the next step in discovering your full potential!
