Lynn Arnold (née Carter) is relishing her vocation as a pianist, in solo, chamber and accompaniment capacities, and indeed as a teacher. After reading Music at Selwyn College, Cambridge University, Lynn was awarded a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music, where she achieved recognition in various competitions and gained a distinction in her postgraduate diploma. Lynn won a substantial award from the Musicians Benevolent Fund, and was also nominated to be a Park Lane Group Young Artist in 2010, performing at the Southbank Centre, amongst other venues.
Recent engagements have included solo and chamber music performances around the UK, not least returning to her alma mater with a recital of Bach’s Goldberg Variations in celebration of Selwyn College admitting women for forty years. Concerto performances include those by Schumann, Mozart (9, 14, 20, 23 & 24), Mendelssohn (No. 1 and the “Double” concerto), Dohnanyi (Variations on a Nursery Tune) and Shostakovich (No 2). Lynn looks forward to performing with the Amadeus Orchestra in January 2019. Lynn proudly performs for the charity Music in Hospitals and Care which seeks to bring the joy of live music to those who would be unable to otherwise access live music.
Lynn takes an enormous pride in working with students. She has tutored Chamber Music and been Staff
Accompanist at the Royal Academy of Music, Junior Department for over ten
years, prior to which she worked at the Junior Department of the Trinity
Laban. Lynn has also enjoyed accompanying
the Pro Corda Violin Masterclass course and others in Europe. In a more public
role, Lynn has welcomed the opportunities to adjudicate various competitions
and give masterclasses. Lynn nurtures
her own varied private teaching practice and is delighted to be serving as the
Senior Piano Tutor at Warwick University. Lynn has also served on the Committee of the Denne Gilkes Memorial Fund for over five years, which seeks to help young musicians and actors who have connections with Stratford-upon-Avon.
Lynn launched the Butlers Marston Concert Society in 2009 which continues to bring chamber music to wider rural audiences, and looks forward to celebrating the anniversary years of Bernstein and Debussy this year.
