Lynn Carter

Piano Recitalist, Accompanist, Teacher

Biography

Lynn is delighted to be carving out her career as both a performing pianist, in solo and chamber capacities, and as a highly sought-after teacher of piano in Warwickshire and London. Having read Music at Selwyn College, Cambridge where she held a University Instrumental Award, Lynn gained a distinction in postgraduate performance and an LRAM in teaching from the Royal Academy of Music. A former Park Lane Group Young Artist, Lynn was delighted to receive a major scholarship from the Musicians Benevolent Fund whilst achieving recognition in various competitions at the Royal Academy of Music.

Lynn frequently performs with her various duo partners and as a guest pianist in ensembles for concert societies and festivals both at home and abroad. Festival appearances include those in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Two Moors Festival and the Three Choirs Festival; other recital venues include the Warwick Arts Centre, the Purcell Room at the South Bank Centre, St James’ Church, Piccadilly, Brecon Cathedral, Wales, Tampere in Finland and the Esplanade in Singapore.

Lynn is equally keen to explore the solo piano repertoire, giving numerous solo recitals each year. Having performed concerti such as those by Schumann, Mozart (9, 14, 20, 23 & 24), Mendelssohn and Shostakovich, she is looking forward to performing Brahms’ First Piano Concerto in 2015!

Having instigated various initiatives as Head of Keyboard at Warwick School over the last three years, Lynn has now left this role to focus on her playing and to nurture her own broad private teaching practice, which encompasses children and adults of all standards. Lynn is passionate about teaching, which is reflected in her pupils’ readiness to practice and their consequent achievements. Lynn continues to relish her roles as Staff Accompanist at the Royal Academy of Music, Junior Department and indeed Director of the Butlers Marston Concert Society, which has brought chamber music to wider rural audiences since 2009.
