The following year she received a mark of 100% for TEE music. At 16 Caroline passed her L.Mus.A in Brisbane, whilst studying at the Brisbane Conservatorium of Music.

2001 saw Caroline being awarded the Cecilia Daff Scholarship for Piano.

On October 5th 2002, Caroline performed her combined Bachelor of Music Graduation and AMEB Fellowship of Music Recital, becoming the first West Australian ever to be awarded the latter. The Fellowship is the highest honour given in the country from the AMEB. The following month she was selected to perform a movement of a concerto with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.
