Diedrich W.

Minneapolis, MN

I teach in the way that is your best way of learning and with material that is inspiring to you. I make it easy and fun without dumbing things down. I'm a champion for you to accomplish what you want to and open up new possibilities that you hadn't known before.

About Diedrich

I hold a degree from Hamline University, but that doesn't make me a good teacher. I've played professionally for over 25 years, have taught English as a Second Language, Hockey and Audio Engineering, taught people age 5 to 75, and have taught private music lessons full time in Minneapolis for the past 9 years, but this doesn't make me a good teacher. What makes me a good teacher is that I have an infectious love of music and a passionate commitment to helping people. I do have specialties, like helping singer/songwriters develop their lyrics, arrangements, voice, and performance as well as helping artists get through creativity blocks, stage fright and preparing for studio recording. My experience as a producer, studio musician and audio engineer has allowed me to understand what an ...

Diedrich makes you feel comfortable starting lessons at any age or skill level! He made learning guitar very enjoyable, and encouraged me to use my "inner ear" when playing. Diedrich also encouraged me to practice singing along with playing guitar, something that I had not felt comfortable doing previous to taking lessons. He takes the time to tailor the lessons to your personal style and needs. Diedrich is a great teacher!

I'm a middle aged guy with no musical experience. My wife got me lessons for Christmas. Dietrich got me playing the harmonica and I liked it so much I started on guitar. He is very patient and gives bite sized stuff to work on. He's the best!

Rick has been great in writing out (and instructing me how to play) music that I have enjoyed... Really knowledgeable and patient... It was a really good experience.. I would continue, but my schedule has become too cluttered..

Rick taught our 7-year old son for quite a few months, and did a fantastic job. We were pleased with his energy, enthusiasm, and ability to connect with young people.

We were sad when our son decided that he'd like to take a break from music and play more tennis, but hope that this, his first musical experience, will inspire him to return to it at some later point.

I highly recommend Rick.
