Hi! I'm Michelle Ward, Director of GTR Music Studio.
Since establishing GTR in 1993 , I've been passionate about providing strong musical education for students, right at the beginning of their journey.
As a graduate of the University of Idaho's Hampton School of Music, I set out to multiply my passion of how music should be taught -- by teachers who are talented, qualified, and who share my same philosophy of music education.
My goal is that every student receives individual music instruction, tailored to their age, personality, and learning style. I carefully select teachers that will emulate this goal.
We are the areas popular choice for music studios on the Palouse and are honored that so many students and families are finding us and love our teachers, our teaching philosophy, and our atmosphere for learning!
From Renaissance to Rock, we help our students develop the skills and knowledge to play almost any style they want, including Rock, Blues, Country, Classical, Progressive, Jam, Punk, Jazz, Metal, Funk, Folk, R&B, Soul and more.
Constant attention is given to help the student develop solid technical skills, an understanding of how music works (theory), as well as learning and improving musical interpretation.
