Diedrich W. Minneapolis, MN

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 is an amazing vocal coach. I really enjoyed my time taking singing lessons with him. He made it fun to learn and he found ways to relate the teaching material to real life situations to make learning easier. He was able to help me become a better singer where I feel more confident in my sound and tone. I'll continue to use him in future lessons.

Diedrich was very patient and helpful. He tailored the lesson to my experience and what I was looking for. He had exercises and recordings to help me practice at home. I am looking forward to my next lesson.

Anna C. Shakopee, MN

About Anna

Hi, my name is Anna. As an orphan, I grew up in Hungary in a foster home. At a very young age I was already exposed to music. It kind of blew me away. I didn't know how something could be so beautiful, and it was like a miracle for me. Then and there, I knew that something special was waiting for me ahead. When I was 3, I didn't talk for a long time, but I did do one thing: sing. At that point my life has totally changed. I began my long journey. My foster parents got me in to a music school, called Janos Patzay Music School. I knew immediately what I wanted to be. I built my whole life on music. It always filled up a very special place in my heart,it still does, and it always will. I started to learn the violin when I was 5 years old. Being in a music environment always gave me strength,

Anna has a wonderful rapport with our son. This, I'm certain, has greatly improved the quality of the lesson and his willingness to practice. In the very short time (year and a half) that he's been taking violin, he is playing better than many of the longer studied kids in his string orchestra at school, due to the tutelage of Anna.

We have been very impressed with Anna and have also received feedback from our son's orchestra instructor that she must be fantastic based on the progress our son has made over the last school year. Thank you, Anna, for all of the encouragement and instruction you've given to our son.
Mark F. Chanhassen, MN

About Mark

Dear Students and Parents, I have been playing guitar for over 30 years. I played in various rock bands for fun growing up and then developed a passion for acoustic finger-style guitar playing by songwriters like James Taylor. While still in high school, I opened a concert for Livingston Taylor (James Taylor's™ brother). After high school I decided to pursue my passion for guitar in college and received my Bachelors degree in Classical Guitar Performance studying with Robert Guthrie at Southern Methodist University. I also love to write music so after graduating from SMU I went out to Los Angeles and worked in the film music industry at Warner Bros. Studios for many years. I am currently working at MakeMusic, Inc., a world leader in music technology whose mission is to develop ...

About Melody

Are you looking to sing or play keyboard, work on material for your band, build your repertoire, sing or play in the church choir/band, audition for a production, become a better lead singer in your rock or pop band, overcome stage-fright or wanting to get to the next level? You have come to the right place!

Melody is very approachable and insightful. She's really good at identifying your strengths and weakness to find what you need to focus on to correct what's needed and get the most out of the lessons. She gives me homework in between lessons which has helped me progress faster! I'm really enjoying my lessons with Melody!

This has been a truly enjoyable experience.

Don was teaching several of my charter high school students in guitar/vocal and music production. After a quick observation of his classes, I signed up for lessons as well. I am an adult student and have been taking guitar/vocal performance lessons with Don for three years. This has been a truly enjoyable experience. Don combines proper technique with enough creativity to make our lessons fun. Don is an inspirational teacher. He tuned into my musical tastes and tailored his lessons to my desires. I highly recommend Don to any adult or youth students interested in furthering their skills and enjoyment of music performance.

Family Fun on Ukelele and Strumstick

Don has been wonderful to work with as a Ukelele and Strumstick instructor. I had an idea to get music lessons for my husband and 5 year old daughter as a Christmas gift. The thought was to have special Daddy and daughter time; sharing something that my husband loves to do. Don has worked with us to create a whole experience for them around music lessons. Don has succeeded in building an environment for our daughter to enjoy the music lesson experience. The first time she played 'hot crossed buns' brought a tear of joy to my eyes. He has even included me in the group lessons on Strumstick. My husband has expanded his knowledge of musical instruments and enhanced his playing skills with Don's skillful instruction. Don has made the whole experience delightful for our family.
