Will DalrympleGuitar Teacher, Bass Guitar Teacher
Will has been playing guitar for 13 years, throughout which he experimented with a wide variety of styles, with focuses ranging from bluegrass to brutal death metal, big band swing to slide blues, pop to psychobilly and funk to folk. He loves bringing new music to his students and passing on his knowledge to help his students not only play, but understand the music. Prior to joining the staff at School of Rock Columbia, Will served as the Co-Artistic Director of Open Space Arts, an arts organization in Reisterstown, Maryland.
Megann BaldwinStudio Coordinator
Megann has been in a love affair with music since before she could form words. No matter what phase of life she's in, there's always a guitar or microphone in her hand. She loves inspiring young minds and teaching them to be rockstars, but she's still waiting on that Grammy, mansion and tour with Metallica. When not teaching the future Joe Strummers of America, Megann spends her time looking for new records, creating art and writing music. Oh, and petting cats. At School of Rock Columbia, Megann teaches guitar, bass, vocals, beginner drums/keys and is always available to tell people how great David Bowie is.
