Clark Schaufele

Conservatory Instructor

Alberta-born pianist Clark Schaufele recently completed his Doctorate in Musical Arts (Piano Performance) degree at Canada’s Université de Montréal in June of 2017 under the tutelage of Canadian pianist and educator, Paul Stewart. No stranger to the Canadian performance scene, Clark has participated in the Banff Centre Fall/Winter Creative Music Residency programs of 2009-2010 as well as the 2012-2013 season under the direction of Henk Guittart.  A devoted collaborative pianist, he has had the privilege of serving as the studio pianist of Sylvia McNair for her opera workshop, and works as a freelance vocal coach/accompanist throughout Montreal, Toronto, and Western Canada. 

In the summer of 2017, he served as the vocal pianist for the Orlando Festival vocal masterclass, working daily with students from Western Europe.  Clark enjoys a multi-faceted career, spanning genres beyond classical piano - on both the piano and the double bass, he has been involved in a variety of performances, tours, and studio recordings, ranging from classical and jazz to country and folk; he is also a double bass alumnae of the National Youth Orchestra of Canada.

A dedicated educator, Clark has spent the summers of 2009-2013 as the musical director for Odeum Theatre, producing performances such as Gilbert and Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance, Monty Python's Spamalot and most recently, the Broadway hit, Grease. Ever since its formation in 2013, he has also enjoyed working as an educator and collaborative pianist at the Banff Summer Strings Program. Recently, he has participated in numerous music series and festivals throughout Canada and Europe, including the 2017 Orlando Festival at the historic Rolduc Monastery in the Netherlands. Clark has benefited prominently from the musical guidance of Paul Stewart, Henk Guittart, Marc Durand, Jean Saulnier and Wayman Chin.
