Maryanne at the pianoMaryanne Rumancik (1960 –) began playing the piano at the age of 6 years old and has been making music ever since.

She graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Music with an ARCT in piano pedagogy and continued with studies at the University of Winnipeg earning a 4-year BA in music composition.

Upon completion of this degree, Maryanne continued her private studies in composition and orchestration with Dr. David Scott for two years. A few years later, she graduated from Canadian Mennonite University with a Bachelor of Music Therapy degree. A rich variety of studies and musical experiences have made for a very interesting life.

Maryanne lives in Lorette, MB where she had an active piano teaching studio for thirty years. She retired from teaching and adjudicating in June, 2018 to spend more time on writing music and personal projects. Several years ago, she retired  from church music ministry after 25 years of regular involvement.

Maryanne continues to practice music therapy. Her private practice has led her to a deeper appreciation of music making in a variety of cultural traditions as well as by people of varying abilities.

Maryanne’s pieces for piano are listed on several Syllabi internationally. She has written music for piano teaching, along with choral, vocal and chamber music. Her music has received performances across Canada and internationally by learners and professionals. Several of her piano pieces have been published by the Canadian National Conservatory's Northern Lights series. A variety of her works are available from Prairie Sky Music Publishing. These pieces are suitable for recitals, festivals and examinations.

In her spare time, she enjoys relaxing with her family and her cat, reading, gardening, iconography and biking. Recently she has been learning how to do watercolour painting and quilting.
