    Piano
  • Teaching has been a joy for me for many years. I began as a high school English teacher with the Winnipeg School Division No. 1 and, after our family grew, I returned to my passion for music as a pianist/teacher. I give one-on-one piano lessons to students of all levels currently ranging in age from 6 to 84.
     
    I enjoy being in situations where I can learn something new and have 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), Eric Lussier and Peter Vinograde. I have led masterclasses for the Department of Preparatory Studies, encompassing Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary (20th and 21st) music.  Involvement in these masterclasses along with my own teaching experience has shaped my teaching style and made me a better listener and a keener observer of detail, as well  as a more compassionate teacher able to encourage student creativity and adherence to a composer’s intent. 
     
    During my term as President of the Winnipeg Branch of the Manitoba Registered Music Teachers’ Association (M.R.M.T.A.), I co-ordinated professional development workshops for colleagues on topics including “The Benefits of Examinations and Festivals”, (Dr. Joan Miller and Henry Engbrecht), “Learning Disabilities: Challenges and  Strategies” (Gail Bobowski), and “The Wit and Diversity of the Haydn Piano Sonatas” (Joan Passey). 
     
    I have served on the AMAF Syllabus Selection Committee for Piano, have been an active member of the Manitoba Piano Club and have contributed articles to “Take Note”, the MRMTA newsletter. I have acted as an adjudicator for the Associated Manitoba Arts Festivals, and have volunteered regularly for several years as an Adjudicator’s Assistant at the Winnipeg Music Festival.
     
    I have earned a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Certificate in Education from the University of Manitoba, and hold both A.R.C.T. Piano Performance and Teachers’ Diplomas from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto.

  • Karin Erhardt  studied cello and piano at the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts ( B Mus/ M Mus) , Indiana University ( Bloomington)  and Brandon U. She performed as  principal cello for the Windsor Symphony and Cartier String Quartet in Ontario   prior to  returning to her hometown Winnipeg.

    In Winnipeg,  Karin  has performed  frequently with  the WSO, Manitoba Chamber Orchestra , Manitoba Theatre Centre, Rainbow Stage,Dry/Cold Productions, Winnipeg Jewish Theatre , Canzona, Winnipeg Singers and Winnipeg Philharmonic as  well as many smaller  local arts groups. She also served as principal cello of Winnipeg's Musik Barock for 20 years. Her  group, "Allega Strings" is available to perform at weddings, receptions, AGM's......

    Karin has also toured  to The National Arts Centre  with the  Manitoba  Theatre for Young People and to western Canada with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, in addition to playing for touring shows (Phantom and  Les Miserables)  during their Winnipeg stops.She has enjoyed her visits to the "pop" field , as well, performing with  Rod Stewart, Sarah Brightman, Jane Siberry, Ann Murray, Sarah Slean, and JP Hoe.

    Teaching has always been a very important part of Karin's  musical life. Some of her   students have gone on to interesting and varied careers in  the arts....... from solo cellist/ composer/ performer in Cirque de Soleil, to   the cello section of the WSO, to professorships  at university and college  music programs, to teaching  music in the public/ private school systems. Others have simply developed a life long love  of music , as well as skills that enhance their abilities in their chosen fields .

    In addition to  private cello lessons, Karin offers  free cello group sessions for her students, where we explore a variety of  ensemble  music of many different styles . Students of every level can take part in this ....... a chance to play  in a low pressure and fun atmosphere. We perform our  repertoire  as a group  in  the year end recital..... a great way to get some playing experience, especially for those  just starting out.

    In addition  to her cello activities, Karin  has always worked  as a piano accompanist with both instrumentalists and vocalists. She is able to offer  extra "technical"  support to string players, having studied the violin and double bass , as well as the cello.  A highlight in her accompanying   work was a performance with  former WSO principal bass player Eric Hansen, which was recorded by CBC for local broadcast.

    Karin is looking forward to her  sixth year of teaching in the WSO/ Winnipeg School Div. 1  "Sistema" program ...... a unique  orchestra  based music program   offered free to students at two inner city schools. Challenging and rewarding  work!

    “This latest Master Class has some fine flourishes, not the least of which is the soprano work of Margot Harding, the initially cowed student who emerges from under Callas’s tyranny to present a lovely letter aria from Verdi’s Macbeth.”                   The Ottawa Citizen, October 25, 1997

    .

    “Margot Harding was diabolical Queen of the Night perched in a balcony”

                                                       The Winnipeg Free Press, October 2, 2006.

     

    After 15 years of intensive piano study, Margot switched to singing. She obtained a B.F.A.from the University of Manitoba and a B. Mus. (majoring in opera) from the University of British Columbia. In her final year there she won several major vocal competitions, including the Johann Strauss Scholarship for Canada which allowed her to study in Salzburg, Austria, with Grace Bumbry and Kerstin Meyer. While there, Margot was selected to appear in the Preiskonzert for outstanding performers from the Mozarteum and also appeared in various concerts around Austria. The crowning jewel was singing the Queen of the Night at the gorgeous Landestheatre in Salzburg. Returning to Canada, she was one of the winners of the Metropolitan Opera Competition, took top vocal prize in the Winnipeg Music Festival, swept every class in the Manitoba Provincial Music Festival as well as being selected Most Outstanding Performer, and was a finalist at the National Music Fest in Calgary, Alberta. She made her professional debut with the Manitoba Opera as Josef's mother in Randolph Peters’ Nosferatu, and later sang the soprano solo in Murray Shafer’s’ Falcon’s Trumpet at the Winnipeg New Music Festival, recorded and broadcast on CBC Stereo. She was also featured on Arts and Minds on the Bravo television channel. Margot won the coveted role of Sharon Graham in the Canadian premiere of Terrence McNally’s Master Class at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Ontario and the Manitoba Theatre Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Margot has appeared with the Winnipeg Symphony numerous times singing the Vengeance aria from Mozart’s The Magic Flute in the Mad about Mozart series and has been a featured artist in their Light Classics series. Margot has appeared in the 2001 Winnipeg Fringe Festival playing Lola in Edmore’s comic opera "Gallantry” with The Little Opera Company. Also with The Little Opera Company, Margot performed the role of Isabelle/Madeline in Mollicone’s dramatic opera, "The Face on the Ballroom Floor," in a cabaret performance. Recently, Margot performed the role of the Queen of the Night with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet in Mark Godden’s’ world premiere of The Magic Flute. She also appeared with them in Ottawa, January 2004, to present the ballet/opera at the National Arts Centre. Recently; she performed the role of Della in the Canadian premiere of David Conte's opera, "The Gift of the Magi," at The Manitoba Theatre for Young People with The Little Opera Company. In May of 2005, Margot played Nella in Puccini’s “Gianni Schicchi”at the Canwest Global Arts Centre. In November of the same year, she played Lucy in Menotti’s “The Telephone,” both with the little Opera Company. October of 2006, Margot sang the role of Madame Goldentrill in Mozart’s “The Impresario”, again with the little opera company. Also in October of 2006, she sang the role of the Queen of the night in a joint musical play with The Winnipeg Symphony and Dry Cold Productions called “Mozart Comes Alive!” 

    Margot again appeared with The Royal Winnipeg Ballet in March of 2007, in a repeat of their popular production of Mozart’s’ “The Magic Flute” by Mark Godden.

    A member of the Manitoba Registered Music Teachers’ Association, she is an active vocal teacher with a variety of students in various styles of singing,

Lucky to have been trained under Lydia Wiebe and then Dr. Ken Nichols in Brandon, Leanne completed her Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance back in the 80s. She also has her ARCT in both teaching and Performance and enjoys teaching students at all levels and ages. The joy of collaborating in music was started with piano duets, trios and quartets which were always encouraged by Lydia Wiebe and continued as Leanne worked with choirs, individual singers, ballet classes and other instrumentalists in Brandon. She continues to play for numerous young musicians and teaches private piano at her home studio, as well as at Westgate Collegiate and St. John's Ravenscourt.  The joy of making music with others is a strong part of Leanne's teaching, and she is very pleased to be playing with a newly formed trio (piano, flute, viola) which has yet to find a name! Leanne is mom to 3 teenage boys, and enjoys playing tennis, and biking when not sitting at the piano (though her family may say she is always sitting at the piano!)

    Violin
  • Growing up in the music-rich culture of Morden, Manitoba, Ainsley quickly showed a strong artistic aptitude which was no surprise to her parents, especially her mother, a piano teacher. 

    At four years old Ainsley was enrolled in violin lessons with Lillian Toews and immediately showed promise, eventually making weekly trips to Winnipeg and participating in all three levels of the Winnipeg Youth Orchestra, as well as the University of Manitoba Chamber summer camp program.

    Aside from her classical music studies, Ainsley grew up playing violin in church, developing and utilizing her improvisational skills with the worship band. At the age of nine she already began to be requested for wedding ceremonies and special events for violin performance. 

    Music has taken Ainsley all over southern Manitoba for performances and has led to many awards over the years, including three silver medals from the Royal Conservatory of Toronto for achieving the highest examination mark in the province for her violin performance. Before the age of 18, Ainsley had completed her grade 8 examination through Royal Conservatory of Music for piano performance, and grade 10 for violin performance. She later went on to complete her ARCT Diploma in Violin Performance. 

    Ainsley was also awarded the Loreena McKennit scholarship and trophy by the Morden & District Chamber of Commerce for outstanding achievement as a result of her years participating in the Morden Festival of the Arts.

    Pursuing her interest in teaching, Ainsley completed Carl Orff's Music for Children Method Level One training and Suzuki Violin Method Book one training. In 2012 Ainsley graduated from the University of Manitoba with both a Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education degree. She had the privilege of studying under the University of Manitoba's violin professor, Oleg Pokhanovski, as well as Karl Stobbe, associate concertmaster of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Her university schedule kept her busy with several small ensembles and performing with the University of Manitoba Symphony Orchestra, all the while continuing to maintain a busy life as a freelance musician and private teacher. 

    In 2010 she founded the Hesed String Quartet which she continues to play with, manage and arrange music for.  She freelances with several classical ensembles in Winnipeg, and maintaines her improvisational skills with the Manitoba country singer, Lindsay Rae. Her violin studio has seen steady growth over the last 10 years, teaching out of Winnipeg and Gretna, maintaining more than 40 violin students every year, including young piano students. Several of her students have been awarded the Gold Medal for highest RCM exam mark in the province. Recently, Ainsley has also taken the role as an adjudicator for a few music festivals in southern Manitoba. 

    Ainsley, her husband Jordan, and son Franklin,  currently they live in Winkler. In their spare time they love to travel and spend time with their great friends, family and dog, Lucy

    I have taught for 30 years and been a professional flutist since the age of 16. I studied at the University of Toronto, the Banff School of Fine Arts, the Aspen School of music, Jeunesses Musicales of Canada, and have attended many flute master classes and National Flute Association conventions. My teachers have included Keith Underwood, Geoffrey Gilbert, Louis Moyse, and Jeanne Baxtresser. I have played in the Calgary Philharmonic, the Canadian Chamber Orchestra, and was leader of Windson, an ensemble of flute, harp, and piano. I wrote the world's first flute dictionary in 2009: "A Dictionary for the Modern Flutist".

    History
    Piano
    Theory Rudiments
  • Herbert Pauls grew up in a large musical family in rural Northern Saskatchewan. The sixth child of a large musical family, he learned to read notes and play by ear at an early age but did not begin formal piano lessons until the age of 8. Gifted with absolute pitch and insatiable musical curiosity, he progressed rapidly and was already achieving marks in the 90s in advanced RCM practical examinations before his teens. During this time he also began what was to become a life-long habit of collecting musical scores and recordings. At 14, he began regular 2 1/2 hour commutes to Saskatoon in order to study with the British pianist Robin Harrison, head of piano at the University of Saskatchewan. By the age of 17 he was able to perform works such as Beethoven's Sonata No. 32, Liszt's Sixth Rhapsody, and Scriabin's Fourth Sonata. Under Harrison, he developed a comprehensive technique and studied a large literature including Schubert's Wanderer Fantasy, Liszt's Dante Sonata, and Chopin's 24 Etudes.

     

    Throughout his youth he won numerous prizes at the local and provincial levels, and in 1990 represented Saskatchewan in the Canadian National Music Festival finals. During his undergraduate years, he also accompanied dozens of student recitals and many local competition entrants, gave a number of recitals, both solo and with many of Saskatoon's best professional musicians, and appeared in regular yearly recital series' such as Music at the Mendel and Rites of Spring. He also appeared in CBC broadcasts. From 1998 to 1999 he studied piano at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto with Boris Lysenko (former head of piano at the Leningrad Conservatory).

     

    Insurmountable physical problems eventually necessitated a change in direction, and in 2004, Herbert completed a Masters in Musicology (University of Toronto), specializing in music theory. From 2005 to 2008 he studied and worked abroad, teaching English as a second language in Rostock, Germany, where he also started doctoral work with Prof. Dr. Hartmut Möller. He was awarded a Phd in historical musicology (magna cum laude) in 2014 for his 500-page dissertation on Romanticism in the Twentieth Century. He also works as a translator for the German CD company Spektral Records, and is responsible for the English versions of the booklets (3000 to 5000 words each) for over 50 of their CD releases.

     

     

    Dr. Pauls currently lives in Winnipeg with his wife Elation (a member of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra) and, in yet another change in direction, has been devoting much of his time to raising their two young daughters, born in 2008 and 2012. Besides that, he teaches piano at Canadian Mennonite University and also likes to read, practice his instrument, and enjoy his large collection of musical scores, books, and 10 000 CDs. Future plans include writing a number of articles as well as publishing a shortened version of his dissertation.

  • Merrily was born and raised in Winnipeg, the youngest of 4 children in a musical family. Her mother (now retired) is Win nifred Sim, who is well known in Win nipeg's musical circles. Merrily officially joined the Winnipeg Sym phony Orchestra in 1992, although she feels she has been part of the WSO for most of her life. Merrily started on piano, but soon added string lessons. She stud ied with Karin Klassen (violin), Joanne Martin (violin and viola), and Rennie Regehr (viola). While studying viola with Rennie Regehr, Merrily attained her Bachelor of Music De gree in Viola Performance from the Univer siy of Manitoba. During that time, she took a year off of school to play with the WSO, having been appointed to replace a violist who was away on sabbatical. A year studying at the Banff School of Fine Arts and a year in the Thunder Bay Sym phony followed, before Merrily settled back in Winnipeg. Merrily and her husband Randal have 4 children and 2 wonderful grandchildren. She now lives 3 km south of St. Norbert, in Howden, MB.

    I just recently relocated to Winnipeg after beginning both my performing and teaching careers here decades ago.  For the past twenty-five years I have lived in Toronto and Ottawa with my husband, violist Rennie Regehr and have enjoyed most rewarding careers in each.  I’ve attached a biography below. 

     

    At this stage in my teaching career, I believe I can make the greatest contribution as a ‘resource teacher’ in several areas. 

     

    The first is working with teachers who both for their own sake and for their students’ sake want to continue lessons themselves. Wherever a teacher is, with regard to their own playing or whatever their situation, it gives me great pleasure to help them continue to develop and to do so in a way that is truly life giving and inspiring.

     

    The second is being a resource for teachers with their own students.  Whether having a student come for a coaching session in preparation for a performance for example or giving a master class for a group of students, I see my role as working with the teacher to achieve their goals for their students. 

     

    Finally and in a somewhat different vein, I have developed a keen interest in working with individuals who are in other professions but who at the same time, are avid pianists.   

     

    In each of the avenues I’ve outlined, my focus is on individualizing a plan that meets the needs or goals of each. Whatever it is that will help you move forward is what I am committed to working toward with you. 

     

     

     


    JENNY REGEHR - BIOGRAPHY

     

    Jenny Regehr is well known across Canada for her solo recitals, duo and chamber music performances and Lieder collaborations.  She performs with many of Canada’s leading musicians in university and concert series across the country. For many years she was the harpsichordist and pianist of the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra and has been heard regularly on national radio.         

     

    As a faculty member of the Glenn Gould School at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Ms Regehr was a senior piano and pedagogy instructor and for more than a decade, coordinated its piano master class program, featuring a roster of international visiting artists.  This exposure to a great range of the best pedagogy, has had a profound influence on her performing and teaching.  As a versatile and highly effective teacher, her studio has included those embarking on performance careers, gifted young pianists and teachers wishing to further their training as well as students who are active in other professions while avidly pursuing the piano.  Her students have gone on to performing careers in major international centers and to be leading teachers in their communities.  All have been inspired by her ability to tailor her teaching to their particular situation and by her wholehearted dedication.

     

    She is beloved for the master classes and workshops she has given across Canada and is highly respected as an adjudicator of festivals and competitions. Ms. Regehr is also a senior piano examiner for the Royal Conservatory of Music Examinations.   She has performed and taught at summer music festivals in Canada, the United States and Europe and has been invited for a number of teaching residencies at the renowned Central Conservatory in Beijing as well as at the Shanghai Conservatory.  She was recently on an international panel of adjudicators at the prestigious Hong Kong Schools Music Festival.

  • Trudy Voth began her music studies at the age of 9, after several years of begging her mother for piano lessons. Her mother relented on the condition that she would never have to remind Trudy to practice. On this foundation of love for music and self-discipline, Trudy earned her ARCT Teacher's diploma two years after high school. Along the way she began teaching her own students, and accompanying singers, instrumentalists, choirs and school musicals, much of which she continues to do to this day. Trudy expanded her education by completing a BA English major, and a B.Theology degree from CMBC in Winnipeg, as well as earning her ARCT Performers degree. While raising her family, she taught piano and theoretical subjects in her home, to the Gr. 10 Royal Conservatory level, hosting Playing Classes and Recitals, and preparing students for festivals and exams. Later in life Trudy obtained her diploma as an Educational Assistant. She now works part- time with students and adults with intellectual and other disabilities. While not directly related to her music, Trudy has learned better how to adapt her piano teaching approach to each individual student, knowing that what inspires and motivates one student might not do so for another. Trudy warmly welcomes new students into her home-based studio, eager to enrich their lives through music, knowing that the value of music in her own life is incalculable.

  • TESTIMONIALS

    Tiffany is an artist, both as a performer and as a teacher. She has a masterful way of teaching that ensures that theory and technique are covered all while allowing fun to permeate her studio. She challenges her students so that they may be ready to pursue further education or even careers in music. I have grown exponentially under her tutelage and am very grateful of her commitment as a teacher and mentor”.  Robert Piche, baritone

     “Miss Tiffany has been teaching our son Voice for 4 years now.  She has helped him achieve First Class Honours with Distinction on his RCM Vocal exams and is helping him to achieve his goal of voice major at the University of Manitoba.  She is a lovely woman and a gifted teacher.  We are so blessed to have her in our lives.” Susan – Mom of Nicholas (baritone), vocal student.

    A consummate professional, Tiffany helps her students to refine their technique and explore the passion in their vocal performances, enabling them to exceed their expectations. Lessons with her are a highlight of my week! – Steve Yurkiw, tenor/actor.

    Tiffany is the best! She has a gorgeous studio in a separate building adjacent to her home making lessons private and focused.  Her studio has large windows so you can view trees and aspects of nature as you are singing, such as groups of deer, birds etc.

    I have studied with many voice teachers and the best lessons have been with Tiffany.  She has corrected techniques that were taught incorrectly, generously shared her wealth of knowledge and is passionate about her work. She is interested in her students’ lives as well as their musical development. I'm so grateful to Tiffany for sharing her enormous musical talent and beautiful singing voice with me. - Corrine Robinson, Soprano

Having earned her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance and Drama at the University of Manitoba and acquired an A.M.M. in piano from the Western Board of Music; Ms. Wilson is a skilled performer. Further vocal studies brought her to New York and then abroad to England, France and Italy where she studied with this century’s masters: Gianni Raimondi, Mary Thomas and Jean Giraudeau. In Europe, she performed, studied, and perfected those languages in which she is fluent and loves to teach.

    Learning Italian, Ms. Wilson never imagined that she would be doing voice overs to make an app available worldwide on cellular phones! She is thrilled to be involved with the Ultimate Music Theory App, as are her enthusiastic students.

    Known affectionately as “Miss Tiffany” to her many voice and piano students, she has her own successful home-based music studio. She works for the University of Manitoba, Preparatory Studies, and at St. John’s Ravenscourt private school in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

    Ms. Wilson is constantly at the piano accompanying and encouraging her students, at their private lessons, for festivals, concerts and exams. Ms. Wilson is the current President of the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers’ Association (term 2017-2019), to which she is passionately dedicated.

    Miss Tiffany is a certified RCM specialist in both voice and piano. Her students have won provincial gold medals with the Royal Conservatory and many continue on to careers in music. Her knowledge and expertise in music make it possible for her to also be heavily involved with adjudicating, and giving workshops and master classes around Manitoba and Ontario.

    Acknowledged as an excellent disciplinary and exacting educator, Miss Tiffany inspires both young and old to follow their passion for music; sharing her vast knowledge and experience to lead them to become accomplished artists in their own right.
