Carol McFadden is a collaborative pianist, music director, educator, worship arts coordinator. She holds a Master of Music degree specializing in voice pedagogy and degrees in Piano and Church Music.
Whether teaching piano, coaching singers or directing a musical group, I enjoy the process of providing guidance and opening new avenues of understanding and creativity that music provides.
Private studio lessons are available. We can meet to discuss and discover what musical goals you would like to attain. As an RCME (Royal Conservatory of Music) adjudicator, I can prepare students for piano, voice, theory examinations.
At the post-secondary level (university/college) level, I can help to prepare for auditions, recitals, juries, both classical and musical theatre. I also have experience in Commercial styles and Jazz.
Here are some music direction credits of shows with which I have been involved:
Nunsense and Nunsense II,The Secret Garden, Forever Plaid, Once upon a Mattress
Amahl and the Night Visitors, Hansel and Gretel
I have a passion for worship arts and liturgy and am also a choral director with considerable experience.
Some of the components of worship arts include Handbells, Drama, Liturgical Dance, Blended styles as well as Praise
Style worship; Instrumental music .
Choral components include working with professionals and volunteers in large choirs and in small group
Arranging and improvisation of various styles of music is also available.
