Northern Lights: Canadian National Conservatory of Music
Lynette Sawatsky began her musical training at the age of four and completed her performer’s A.R.C.T. in piano while in high school. She holds a Bachelor of Education (elementary) degree from the University of Saskatchewan. Lynette has taught both group and private lessons, worked as a music specialist in the public school system, and participated as a guest piano clinician and adjudicator throughout Saskatchewan. One of the highlights of her week is directing a group of enthusiastic students from inner city neighbourhoods during a lunch hour choir program in her community. Lynette’s piano compositions have been selected as festival test pieces in Ontario, New Brunswick, and Saskatchewan and have recently been added to Conservatory Canada’s syllabus. Her elementary collection, Waddle & Quack, is on Music for Young Children’s supplemental list. Lynette has an active piano studio in Saskatoon where she resides with her husband and children. In her leisure time, she enjoys drinking coffee with friends, playing Scrabble, and going for long walks along the beautiful South Saskatchewan River.
