Bio: Elizabeth Gawrachynsky received her Bachelor of Music with Distinction in voice performance from The King’s University, Edmonton, AB, Canada which included studies in vocal pedagogy, conducting, and piano. Eager to share her passion for music with others, particularly her interest in voice, she started a private studio in Leduc and formed a children's choir focusing on music literacy. She expanded her teaching to include MacEwan’s Conservatory of Music at Alberta College Campus where she teaches both private voice lessons and the Kodaly-based Music in Early Childhood program. Elizabeth enjoys singing professionally in Edmonton and has performed with Edmonton Opera Chorus, Pop Goes the Opera, and in several churches in the area. Sacred music became a personal pursuit and she has undertaken graduate studies in this area through Duquesne University and at Catholic University of America. Elizabeth has experience giving seminars on Gregorian chant, conducting several church choirs, and she was a founding member of the professional Schola Cantorum of St. Joseph’s Basilica where she was also formerly Choral Assistant. She is currently the Director of Music for the Vital Grandin Chaplaincy’s adult choir and men’s schola, the choirs of Holy House Edmonton, and the choirs of Campion Classical Academy. Elizabeth is excited to discover each student’s potential and help them reach their personal goals. She strives to foster a life-long love for music and helps students gain confidence through exploring and developing their voices. Lessons include instruction in vocal technique, theoretical skills, performance, and artistry. Students may prepare for RCM examinations, music festivals and other performance opportunities depending upon interest. She accepts students from age six to adult.
