MusicaNova Composition Fellow  Fiona Ryan was a founder of the Toy Piano Composers while obtaining her DMA from the University of Toronto.  She’s now on the faculty of the Fountain School of Performing Arts at Dalhousie University in her native Halifax, Nova Scotia. MusicaNova’s Warren Cohen called her music “extremely skillful but it doesn’t take itself too seriously.”  Her piece Replay features a 37-key Schoenhut Traditional Deluxe Spinet Piano.
