Janet Lopinski
Founder, Artistic Director

Janet Lopinski has enjoyed a multi-faceted career as a pianist, teacher, adjudicator, lecturer, and author. She has performed as a soloist and collaborative pianist, and has presented lectures, workshops and master classes across Canada and the United States, and in Europe and Korea. She has taught piano, piano pedagogy, music history and theory, and has adjudicated examinations, festivals, and competitions throughout North America.
 

As a firm believer in the transformative power of music and the arts, Dr. Lopinski has been a passionate advocate for music education throughout her career. She has inspired students and teachers across Canada, and has been active as an academic leader, serving as The Royal Conservatory’s Chief Examiner, and currently as Senior Director of Academic Programs.  She has adjudicated thousands of students, and provided leadership in shaping the RCM’s comprehensive Certificate Program and examination system. She was instrumental in developing The Royal Conservatory’s Adjudicator Certification Program, and continues to train and lead its College of Examiners.  She has authored and co-authored many articles and publications, including the Celebrate Theory and Exploring Music History series.
 

Dr. Lopinski is a graduate of The Royal Conservatory of Music (ARCT gold medalist), University of Toronto (Bachelor of Music) and University of Cincinnati (Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts) where she studied with Hungarian pianist Bela Siki. Her doctoral thesis examined the Preludes of Fryderyk Chopin, and was based on sources written in the Polish language.
