Wayne Dietetick


With a career covering decades working with all ages and talents, Wayne brings a vast amount of experience in the fields of piano teaching, organ, composition, and directing to the studio. Most of all, his calm, assuring manner (and wry sense of humor) are what we enjoy most. From the minute he walked into the studio, we knew he was going to be perfect here in this new home with us.
