Biographical history

Ida Gertrude Carroll (1905-1995). Her career in music education started as a student of the Northern School of Music and then as Secretary to the Board, as Deputy and Acting Principal and finally as Principal from 1958 until 1971, all within the NSM. She is widely remembered for her fierce loyalty to the NSM and its students. She was instrumental in the merging of the NSM and Royal Manchester College of Music to become to the Royal Northern College of Music. She later became Companion and Dean of Management of the Royal Northern College of Music. She was Chair of the College Old Students’ Association and part of the Association of Friends. After her retirement from education, she became President of the Incorporated Society of Musicians. In addition to her full-time work Ida Carroll was a freelance double bass player, and a leading figure in a number of organisations including Chetham's School of Music, European String Teachers Association and the National Youth Orchestra. Although she never married, Ida Carroll was lifelong companion of Geoffrey Griffiths, Bursar at the Northern School of Music.
