The Authors and Instructors
Two years after beginning his teaching practice, Wehrli Publications was founded to produce new, innovative teaching materials to achieve the above-stated goal. Barry has so far authored seven unique books and two CDs for Wehrli Publications, some co-authored with his wife, Linda.
He has performed on piano or keyboard several hundred times in the United States, Canada and Europe and has been an arranger, orchestrator, or programmer for such clients as Yamaha, JVC and Warner Brothers.
Barry began formal piano instruction at the age of eight with Dolores Rhoads at Musonia School of Music. During his seven years at Musonia, he also studied both acoustic and electric guitar. With years of piano and guitar training under his belt, Barry shifted into the world of electronic keyboards and synthesizers. Through his high school and college years, he took it upon himself to learn the ins & outs of synthesis and electronic music since classes in these fields were not readily available at the time. At California State University, Northridge, he continued traditional music studies and furthered his piano training under Dr. Sandra Bostrom. Since then, he has studied jazz and blues with renowned pianist Terry Trotter and keyboardist John Novello.
Today, Barry continues to teach, perform, produce music at his home studio and head Wehrli Publications. Barry is a member of the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) and the Music Teachers’ Association of California (MTAC).
