    Deitrich’s love for music began at an early age. He was inspired to start the saxophone in the 5th grade, due to a guest preacher at the church he attended that played between her messages. He was captivated by the sound of the instrument he had just seen for the first time, and began playing shortly after. Though never taking lessons until college, The love for music Deitrich had turned into a passion. It was then that he decided to dedicate himself, not only as a performer but to teach and educate the materials he’s learned along the way to help creatively cultivate young minds and help them gather the tools it took him so long to find. That beyond the technique and the theoretical framework, is the joy of music.
