Margaret Schofield (1918-2004) was a famous Australian pianist born and raised in Kew. She was incredibly influential in Melbourne, becoming the Chief Study Teacher at the Conservatorium of Music at the University of Melbourne. This came after an illustrious global career performing with the BBC as well as concerts throughout Europe, Canada and the United States. She would also play a pivotal role in conserving the Abbotsford Convent, thanks to her history of performing there. She would be awarded the OAM in 1988.
