Caroline Wright

D.M.A. Wind Conducting
Graduation Year: 2026

Caroline Wright is joining the University of Georgia after quite an adventurous journey around the world. After graduating magna cum laude from Southeastern Louisiana University with her Bachelor's degree in Music Education, Caroline moved to Tuscaloosa, Alabama to obtain her Master's in Music Education at the University of Alabama. In both of her degrees, Caroline was awarded Most Outstanding Student by the faculty and staff by both Universities upon her completion. 

Caroline taught briefly in St. Tammany Parish at Mandeville High School, before trading her swamp boots to work with a mouse down in Florida. Her work with Walt Disney’s Performing Arts in Orlando led her to start an international travel journey teaching in schools in Mainland China. During this time, Caroline was voted one of the top ten most sought-after teachers in China ​and was awarded first in overall parent satisfaction. After returning to the U.S., Caroline was hired as the Director of Bands at Mt. Bethel Christian Academy working on curriculum development from grades K-12. Caroline has been passionate about youth activism and has worked alongside with Legacy Youth Leadership which provided her work as a public speaker in places such as Yale, Princeton, Penn State, and Harvard.

Caroline has joined the Hugh Hodgson School of Music at the University of Georgia as a Doctoral Conducting Associate. She is currently pursuing a D.M.A in Wind Conducting where she will study with Dr. Nicholas Williams and Dr. Jaclyn Hartenberger.
