Terence Dawson piano

British-born, Canadian pianist Terence Dawson has firmly established himself as one of British Columbia’s most respected and versatile musicians. His reputation has resulted in repeat engagements from coast to coast across Canada, as well as in the USA, England and Asia. His many performances have garnered critical acclaim: "lucid" (Globe and Mail), "stunning" (Vancouver Sun), and possessing "trademark elegance and technical flair" (Georgia Straight).

He has appeared as concerto soloist with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, National Arts Centre Orchestra, CBC Curio Ensemble, and is the pianist of choice for numerous artists and ensembles. A passionate lover of chamber music repertoire, he has recorded nine discs of chamber music with both large and small ensemble and is well known to CBC Radio audiences. He recently recorded solo music of Brahms and Liszt for an award-winning historical documentary for CBC Television.

A dedicated teacher, Dr. Dawson has lectured and conducted master classes at many universities as well as for RMTA branches in many provinces, national conferences for The Canadian Federation of Music Teachers, The Canadian Music Competition and The Canada Council. He is a founding Faculty member of the Vancouver International Song Institute and will teach at the inaugural VSO Institute at Whistler this summer. 

Since 1991, he has taught piano and chamber music at the University of British Columbia, and in 2011 was appointed Chair of the Keyboard Division, succeeding his principal teacher, Jane Coop.
