Carmen Morin is an award winning concert pianist, teacher and entrepreneur. Her orchestral debut at the age of 10 sparked several guest solo performances with orchestras throughout Canada, including a performance tour for the Canadian Embassy.
Following her faculty position at her city’s University Conservatory, she launched her commercial music school in 2013. Under her leadership, Morin Music has grown to a multiple 7-figure small business with a team of over 45 staff and faculty.
Programs at Morin Music currently provide education to over 1000 students locally in Calgary, and to thousands more around the world through distance education online.
As a performer, she was awarded first prize in international piano duo competition in Coimbra, Portugal (2018), and her success as an educator has earned her international recognition as the first teacher in Western Canada to be inducted into the Steinway and Sons International Teacher Hall of Fame in New York (2019).
She was selected as one of Avenue Magazine’s Top 40 under 40 (2021) and currently serves on the board of directors of Honens, one of the world’s most prestigious international piano competitions.
In her business consulting she focuses on performance-based education and curriculum design, helping founders and industry leaders to codify their expertise and turn it into a profitable and unparalleled educational program.
Carmen has recently re-engaged with her academic pursuits and is on the cusp of completing her degree in Psychology. With a keen interest in Performance Psychology, Carmen plans to delve into this specialized field post-graduation in order to explore and enhance cognitive and emotional aspects of performance in various high-pressure domains such as business, sports and the performing arts.
