Dickie Rohrer Barrick is a Trinway, Ohio native and graduated from Tri-Valley High School. She studied piano at Kentucky Christian College where she accompanied the Concert Choir and toured with several ensembles. After earning her BS in Sacred Music, she returned to Trinway and in 1983 became the Principal Accompanist for the Coshocton Community Choir.
In addition to music responsibilities at her church, Mrs. Barrick established a piano studio in Coshocton – first at Glass Music and later at The Presbyterian Church. Following nine years work as an instructor in private and Suzuki piano, she received her BS in Education degree from Ohio University, Zanesville. She currently teaches third grade in Dresden.
Her piano teachers have included Grace Keys, LaVern Karns, Mary Craig Powell and Francis Clark at Westminster Choir College.
When the Coshocton Children’s Choir and Youth Chorale were established, Dickie agreed to become the accompanist for those groups as well. She continues to be in demand as a sensitive and proficient accompanist for soloists, instrumentalists and choral groups.
