Overview

Hello and welcome to my teacher profile. :D My name is Dillon Stolz!

I am a music and art teacher, and I have earned my Associate's degree in Music Education at MDC with a focus on jazz guitar. I have a fairly diverse experience in different genres of music (primarily worship/church music, but also rock, pop, punk/metal, jazz and others). I have also sung and played guitar, drums, and bass in numerous bands throughout the years.

I have always had a deep love for art, and am currently working on my Bachelor of Science in K-12 Art Education. I have a particular interest in figure drawing/portraiture (charcoal, graphite, India ink), landscape and still life painting (acrylic and oil paint), and both digital and film photography.

I am hoping to improve my teaching skills through this platform and impart knowledge onto others. I am laid-back and a kid at heart, and I find it important to teach with a sense of humor. For the record, I'm also a huge geek. I enjoy video games, superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy, board games, cartoons/anime, technology/science... I also love traveling! If you're into something, feel free to talk to me about it, I love getting to know what you're passionate about!

Dillon was very thorough and patient with my son. They got along great! He asked him some questions to see what my son was really interested in. And his lesson was more geared toward my son's interests.

Dillion is very knowledgeable instructor and musician. He is eager to share all he knows and wants his students to excel. He is very patient and insures you have are having fun while learning. Dillion also goes above and beyond the music lessons. He will record the songs / music you are working and send them to you as reference to listen to before the next lesson. He is very easy to reach either by email or text and will answer any questions you might have about your lessons. I would highly recommend Dillion to any age group.
