Barbara undertook a four year scholarship course at Newcastle and Sydney Conservatoriums and Teachers’ Colleges, graduating with a Diploma of Specialist Education, A.Mus.A. violin and A.Mus.A piano. This opened the path to teaching classroom music in High Schools. Later instrumental teaching became her focus and at Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium she has specialised in tutoring violin and also viola and cello. A highlight for her has been directing an Intermediate String group and a Junior String group and preparing them for eisteddfods and concerts.
