Barry is one of the greatest teacher I've come across. His teaching style motivates you to learn more and to become a better player. He explains theory when necessary to help his students to have better understanding of certain materials. I've learned so much over the year. His passion for music is what keeps me interested in having him as my piano teacher. I definitely recommend Barry if you want to grow as a musician!
Mr. Wehrli provides a step by step sure to learn how to play piano with concrete and effective lessons on how to read and apply notes from book to the piano itself. He wants to make sure that all his students learn each note, understand each lesson and plays piano correctly with correct position and movements of the hands and fingers. He is also very patient instructor, will work with you to strengthen your weaknesses, and will make sure that you understand everything before he goes and proceeds to another lesson. He has all the excellent qualities that make up an excellent piano instructor, you wont regret any minute you paid for. He also will work with you in times of hectic schedules. What more can you ask for?
I have been taking piano lessons from Barry for over a year and a half. I am learning to be a more well-rounded piano player, learning theory, keyboard skills, classical and children's music. Barry is very thorough, patient, and energetic. He makes learning piano fun.
There is no better piano instructor than Barry. Not only does he use effective teaching techniques and materials (his own workbooks) to explain key music points but he also has a great temperament and is very responsive to the student's interests in learning a particular style of music. I worked with Barry to learn jazz techniques after gaining a more solid foundation in scales and other music essentials through my studies with him. I always looked forward to my lessons as Barry made them most enjoyable and I felt my progress throughout the time I studied with him. As an adult piano player who returned to lessons after a hiatus of a few years, I found that Barry brought out the best in me as I sought to further my piano skills and playing. I highly recommend him.
Barry uses an effective teaching method that provides a comprehensive understanding of the piano at my own pace. His weekly lesson plans and grading techniques provide an organized and simple way to learn how to play the piano.
Our older son agreed to take to take piano lessons on a trial basis. After only one month under Barry’s care and guidance,he decided to continue and has enjoyed piano for the past five years. Our younger son is just completing his first year. I’ve seen first-hand how Barry’s originality and personalized instruction carries a project from beginning to end. It is wonderful to see the progress – from a student who cannot read music to one who composes and plays for his own enjoyment.
Barry noted my son’s interest in music at a very young age and was willing to begin lessons when other teachers would not even attempt it. Barry’s lessons have been wonderful for my son. While Barry has high expectations of his students, he displays compassion and patience that I have not seen in other teachers. This makes challenging lessons more palatable and productive. Barry also is very observant and in-tune with his students. For example, he noted that my son has perfect pitch when he was only three. That was a thrilling discovery!
We see results that often times brings tears to our eyes as parents when we hear our daughter not only gain more and more command of the piano as an instrument but also develop a deeper and deeper appreciation of music in general. We are convinced that you are helping to create a skill and develop a talent that, at a minimum, will provide our daughter a perennial source of enjoyment throughout her life.
I have been very pleased with Barry. He is a challenging yet not overwhelming teacher. He makes piano lessons fun.
