Barbara Anhang’s teaching experience lies within and beyond the world of music. She began her career in 1968 teaching English literature and composition at Kelvin High School in the Winnipeg School Division for several years. After she and her husband raised a family, Barbara returned to her childhood love of music in 1992-93, earning both ARCT Piano Performance and Teachers’ Diplomas from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto. She has been teaching privately ever since and is competent at all levels.
Anhang has performed and participated in numerous workshops and masterclasses, notably with the late Leonard Isaacs, Kendall Taylor, John Melnyk, Dr. Lorne Watson, Jean Broadfoot, Professor Charles Reiner (McGill), and Peter Vinograde. In addition, she has led masterclasses for the Division of Preparatory Studies, encompassing baroque, classical, romantic, and contemporary (20th and 21st century) music.
Anhang has also served on the Associated Manitoba Arts Festivals Syllabus Selection Committee for piano, has been an active member of the Manitoba Piano Club, and has contributed articles to “Take Note,” the Manitoba Registered Music Teachers' Association newsletter. She holds a bachelor of arts degree and a certificate in education from the University of Manitoba. She teaches students of all ages, with a particular interest in advanced students.
