Carolyn Morris is an Australian composer based in Melbourne, Australia.
With her music, Carolyn aims to spark the imagination of both the performer and listener. Many of her compositions are inspired by nature, and seek to communicate the essence of the human spirit and uplift the audience. Carolyn has composed music for chamber orchestra, choir, solo instruments, voice and chamber groups.
Carolyn studied oboe and piano at the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School and subsequently graduated from the VCA with oboe as her principal study. Since graduating she has added to her performance, teaching and composing skills by using Kenja Communication Training. This is a uniquely Australian training, co-founded by Ken Dyers and Jan Dyers, which addresses the subtle energies of communication. It enables people from all walks of life to more easily access their natural creativity by eliminating suppressed thoughts and emotions with energy conversion meditation.
Carolyn has performed on oboe with the Australian Philharmonic Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra at St Paul's and Alpha Sinfonia. As an accompanist she has played for the Melbourne Theatre Company and the Australian National Academy of Music, as well as oboists such as Diana Doherty, Anne Gilby, Gordon Hunt and Maurice Bourgue.
Carolyn is a pedagogical artist with the Australian Music Centre, and her music is published by Wirripang. She was commissioned to compose the oboe sight reading book by the AMEB.
