Nina Soyfer

Dr. Nina Soyfer is a classical pianist, composer, scholar, multi-artist, and educator. She recently completed her PhD, LRCM piano diploma, and 3 albums, including her debut piano solo album, "Radiant Classics." A single It's for You to Breathe was also released and performed at Talent Inc International Conference. To premiere her choral work "Dao Zsi" in Toronto, she danced, sang solo, and played African percussion. G. Hathaway commented, "What an harmonious, lively, lithe and energetic production!" N. Ullal further responded, "It was spectacular and very exhilarating. I enjoyed the whole experience…"
Born in Ukraine, Nina Soyfer was selected by the Ukrainian government to study piano performance and music theory full-time. This full-time arts study at primary, secondary, and undergraduate levels required multiple piano and dance recitals each year, leading up to her move to Canada in 2004. She majored in Piano Performance, graduating Suma Cum Laude from York University. She completed her ARCT in piano performance with first class honours after one month of preparation and proceeded to Master’s and PhD studies under supervisor, mentor, role model, and renowned pianist, Christina Petrowska-Quilico. She has been awarded both OGS (Provincial) and SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier (National) graduate study scholarships. Her PhD (on “Integrated Arts Pedagogy and Philosophy”) was conferred in June 2016, following which she received the LRCM diploma in piano performance from the RCM after just 2 months of preparation.
A multi-artist, Dr. Soyfer performs publically in solo and collaborative piano recitals, composes for piano in combination with voice and other instruments, paints, dances, and teaches, primarily piano performance/composition/dance/harmony, to students of all ages, including undergraduate and graduate students.
Her teaching philosophy incorporates the latest brain-based and neurophysiological studies of learning processes. Her dissertation proposes and demonstrates with real world results, the effectiveness of three key pedagogical principles gleaned from recent research and her lifelong personal journey of learning piano and fine arts theory and performance. Most notably, she shows how linking direct context-rich multisensory experience, with student-centered intrinsic motivation for skill development, leads to accelerated and permanent learning. This is also shown to change the student’s self-perception from music consumer (or outsider) to confident performer. Her philosophy is that the educator must actively and creatively seek to uncover this potential in students and to enable each of them individually to fulfill their own latent or overt desires for music production and perfection.
