Madison Magazine has published the latest piece about Wilder Deitz and his uniquely interactive music school, “The Wilder Deitz School for Creative Music.” Written by Doug Moe, it covers Wilder’s journey from jazz musician to social worker to starting his own music school.
His school has been referred to as a musical workshop jam clubhouse. It sounds like the idea is to nurture a place to hang out and meet friends while seriously studying music. Here’s a link to the article.
