30 Years

Since graduating from high school the visible highlights of my life have been:

Continuing my education (Bachelor of Arts from Goshen College, Master of Music from University of Wisconsin at Madison, also a summer of philosophy at Taylor University and a summer of language and culture at Berlin University, East Germany);

Teaching piano performance and pedagogy (back to Goshen College as professor and then at Indiana University at South Bend);

Establishing my own studio in Ohio (Hooley Piano Studio) through which I teach 30-40 students each year;

Marrying John Paul Carlisle (1992);

Traveling throughout western Europe (mostly as a student-bum with backpack and Eurorail pass!);

Becoming Catholic (1986… anything can happen in Madison!);

Serving as a liturgical musician;

and simply enjoying life with family and friends!

In my free-time I like to relax, exercise, shop, drink coffee, indulge in chocolate (especially Marie’s!), laugh, etc. with family and friends; read; write; play with my cats; "surf the net"; and savor the gift of Life!

Best wishes to all my classmates.  Peace of Christ be with you and yours! ~ Mary Louise Hooley Carlisle

I am Christian, married, a pianist. My favorite composers to play are Beethoven, Chopin, and Bach. I'm also an avid reader of great literature, and I like to write: it helps me think. I try to avoid "tribal thinking"; I'm glad and grateful to be Catholic, but I believe all Christians are my brothers & sisters in Christ, those of the Jewish faith are my cousins/elders in faith, and all human-beings are my fellow beloved-children of God. I believe God is our Loving Creator. God loves everyone, no exceptions. The Holy Spirit is growing me in Christ. Other things about me: I can't stand bullies, but I still try to understand their point-of-view; I abhor cruelty, and I do my utmost to make peace inasmuch as it's up to me; I enjoy challenges, variety, spontaneity, color, but I also like solitude, quiet, order. My healing and my bliss is in recognizing I am part of the Body of Christ. Shalom!
