Piano

In His Studio:

Dr. Clark Schaufele teaches piano, theory, and accompaniment with the Conservatory. Lessons with Clark cost $60 per hour of instruction. He is not accepting students at this time. Clark will teach students ages 10 and up, and prefers to teach intermediate and advanced students. In Clark’s studio, students are encouraged to work towards exams and participate in music festival, and required to participate in recitals. He specializes in Classical Piano and String Coaching. Clark encourages students to supply their own acoustic piano for practicing at home, especially for intermediate and advanced students – beginners may practice on an electric piano if necessary, provided it has 88 weighted keys and pedals. Books must be purchased, with input from Clark. He expects his students to practice 4 to 5 times a week (beginner 15-30 minutes, intermediate 45-60 minutes, advanced 90-120 minutes). Regarding his teaching style, Clark is "[…] a bit of a Hufflepuff - I would teach them all." Group classes will be required this year to suppliment private lessons.

Biography:

Alberta-born pianist Clark Schaufele received his Doctorate in Music (Piano Performance) degree at the Université de Montréal under the guidance of Canadian pianist and educator, Paul Stewart. As the Head of Piano at the Regina Conservatory of Performing Arts, Clark enjoys a multi-faceted career, spanning genres beyond classical piano - on both the keyboards and the double bass, he has been involved in many performances, tours, and studio recordings, ranging from classical and jazz to country and folk. At present, his solo folk/pop project, Clark&Marcy, has brought his unique combination of voice and double bass to a wide audience in Montreal, Regina and elsewhere. A dedicated performer and educator, Clark has been involved in various musical theatre productions, including performances such as Gilbert and Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance, Monty Python's Spamalot, Grease, and Into the Woods. Over the past several years, he has also enjoyed working as a teacher and accompanist at the Banff Summer Strings Program and Regina Summer Strings. As a performer, he regularly performs across the prairies for organizations such as Gustin House, Ranva House, Regina Musical Club, and the Hands Across series. Between academic seasons, he frequently performs as part of the Regina Chamber Music Festival, Ritornello Festival, and the Orlando Festival in the Netherlands. Clark has benefited greatly from the musical guidance of Paul Stewart, Henk Guitart, Marc Durand, and Jean Saulnier.
