Clifton Matthews Zurück
A member of the artist-faculty of the North Carolina School of the Arts,  Clifton Matthews holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Juilliard School.  He has been the recipient of two Fulbright awards for study in Munich,  Germany. In addition to his faculty position at the North Carolina School of the Arts, Mr. Matthews has taught for many years on the summer faculty of the Tibor Varga Festival in Sion, Switzerland. He presents master classes around the country, recently at the Boston Conservatory, the Levine School in Washington, D.C., and the Settlement Music School of Philadelphia.  He has also given master classes in France at the American Conservatory in Fontainebleau and at the Conservatoire Darius Milhaud in Aix-en-Provence.  Through the support of the International Music Program of NCSA, many of Mr. Matthews' NCSA students have been able to participate in these European venues, and the student body of the Winston-Salem campus has been enriched by the many foreign students who have followed him from European classes to enroll at the North Carolina School of the Arts.  Mr. Matthews has also taught at Quebec's "Musica Estiva", and has given master classes as well in Durham and Bristol in the United Kingdom, and in Finland. He performs frequently in recitals in the United States and Europe, commanding a wide repertoire including the premieres of several works by contemporary American composers, the complete Well-Tempered Clavier of J.S. Bach, and the complete Beethoven Sonatas for piano and violin.

His students have won numerous awards and competitions, including the University of Maryland William Kappell Competition, the Kosciuszko Competition, the Indianapolis Beethoven Competition, the North Carolina Symphony Competition, the Atlanta Mozarteum Competition, and, four times, the Artists International Competition leading to debut recitals in New York City. Mr. Matthews' students can be found on the faculties of several prestigious American conservatories and educational institutions as well as in major concert venues in the United States, Korea, France, Switzerland and Scandinavia. Mr. Matthews' annual presentation of his class of students in the complete piano works of major composers is a widely admired part of the city's musical life: over the years in these regular winter concerts audiences have heard the students perform both books of the Well-Tempered Clavier, the Mozart Sonatas, the 32 Beethoven Sonatas, the Schubert sonatas, and the bulk of piano works by Chopin, Schumann, Brahms, Debussy, and Ravel.

Mr. Matthews' early studies were at the Kansas City Conservatory.  His teachers have included Irwin Freundlich, Wiktor Labunski, Friedrich Wuhrer, Guido Agosti and Victor Babin.  He holds the Casella Prize for piano playing from the Academia Chigiana in Siena, Italy.  Before coming to the North Carolina School of the Arts, Mr. Matthews had served as a member of the faculties of the Juilliard Preparatory School, Skidmore College, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 1998 he was the recipient of the North Carolina Board of Governors Award for excellence in teaching.
