I help my students to discover their own voice and style, provide them with effective warmup techniques, and help them to expand their range, power, color and flexibility (classical verses pop).

About Cary W.

I have an B.A. in Music Education, with classical guitar and voice as my primary mastered instruments. I also have a M.A. In Educational Technology since I have always loved the instructional process including designing instruction to meet unique needs of each individual. I have over 30 of teaching and performing experience, including teaching music in the public schools for over 4 years.

I compose, record and perform all types of guitar/vocal music from classical to jazz, folk to progressive rock...I love it all, and have a passion to help others awake to the vast worlds of music expression.

I am really excited about working with Cary. He's very comfortable to be around and listens very well.
After 1 lesson I could tell he's a great musician and I look forward to what's to come.

Cary is a great instructor, he is very relatable in how he describes singing and really helped me better understand the basic fundamentals that will eventually get me where I've always wanted to be as a singer, I couldn't ask for a better coach.

Cary is an incredible instructor 😊 We've been impressed with how quickly both of our boys have been able to learn and play the guitar without ever having any other previous lessons. Cary is very encouraging and patient. Both of my boys have completely different learning styles and abilities. I appreciated how Cary knew exactly how to meet each of their needs individually and help build confidence in their ability to perform and to recognize their individual strengths versus comparing their learning level. Cary has a passion for music and teaching and it clearly shows in his instruction. I've had no reservation of highly recommending him to friends and family who have also been pleased with their experience and results.

I enthusiastically recommend Cary White as a teacher of music. My involvement as a student and that of our grandson were very positive. Cary has the skills and creativity of a born teacher.
