Nicole Scoffield is a classically trained violinist with a flair for improvising. Ever since she began to play in bands, singing has become a major performance component, inspiring her to write her own tunes and songs.
Her credits span from playing violin with the Orca String Quartet for Queen Elizabeth at Government House during the Commonwealth Games to performing as a classical soloist for the Deer Lake Art Gallery celebrating the Luminescence Art Display, performing Motown with Vancouver’s Big Sound Orchestra, fiddling solo on a wagon at Richmond’s Pumpkin Patch in addition to freelancing as a violinist and singer with a variety of Celtic-Folk, Rock and Jazz bands.
Influenced by the classical repertoire of her youth and by her affinity for improvising, Ms. Scoffield shares her love of music with her students teaching violin to all ages, styles and levels and she is delighted to be a faculty member of New Westminster’s Music Box where she also teaches piano. This eclectic musician enjoys arranging for her students and is looking forward to a future of composing more original music.
