Carolyn Schofield, Piano Teacher & Composer
Carolyn Schofield is a pianist, violinist, composer and electronic musician with a passion for making music accessible, enjoyable and rewarding for students of all ages.
Carolyn has been teaching piano for almost a decade, and holds an L.Mus.A in piano performance (obtained at age 14) as well as a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Music from the University of Melbourne, where she majored in composition and received multiple scholarships and awards for her work.
Carolyn devotes much of her time to writing, performing and recording her own electronic and classical music, and playing in groups with others, which has seen her perform at festivals in Australia and overseas such as Dark Mofo and Melbourne Festival. She is especially passionate about sharing music from all over the world, as well as genres like soul, jazz, minimalist and experimental music. On the piano she loves to improvise and play the music of the impressionists, Romantics and more contemporary composers.
Carolyn also teaches music theory, composition and music technology, which she incorporates into piano lessons but can also teach separately. She aims to motivate students by making lessons fun and engaging while setting achievable goals and providing a strong grounding in technique, and she has always ensured excellent results for her students who have undertaken exams in piano and theory. Her manner is easy-going, patient and friendly, and she makes sure to tailor lessons and musical repertoire to each student’s own aspirations, abilities and taste. While she comfortably plays and teaches all styles of piano music, she strives to ensure that music learnt in lessons is never boring or out-dated, and thus incorporates plenty of contemporary music into lessons.
