Terry Baker – WLOS Person of the Week – May 14, 2021 – S.H.A.R.E. music school

S.H.A.R.E. ~ Someone Helping Another Receive Enrichment


A program to help children with the opportunity to learn and play music.  Over my years of teaching Music the one thing that I have seen was that many kids miss the opportunity to learn music because of the cost.  Music lessons can start at $30.00 per lesson and go higher.  Then you have the cost of a good instrument

I am asking people to donate that instrument they are not using that is setting in a closet somewhere so a child can learn to play it.  If you don’t have an instrument to donate.  We could always use a donate to help repair an instrument if needed.

Letter of Thanks – Recommendation

July 9, 2019

I have been taking music lessons from Terry Baker since January of this year, I’ve found it to be a true blessing to have met Terry and to be able to attend his music classes.  He teaches music on a level that I can understand and allows me to pace myself so that I can learn at a speed that is comfortable for me.  If time is an issue, he gives you the fundamentals so that you can study for as long or as little as you can fit in your schedule.  Naturally, the more you study, the faster you learn.

With this quick moving class, it is possible to be reading music in a few weeks.  The more involved you get, you can be reading music in no time or writing music with a little more time and effort.

Terry is a good man with Christian values and I find him inspirational to be around.  Every week, I leave class feeling blessed for this man to be willing to share his knowledge of music with me.  His credentials are impressive and he could be teaching anywhere but he has chosen to share this gift with anyone that is eager to learn.

It has been a blessing from God that I met Terry and I leave class feeling anxious for the next lesson.  I believe that everything happens for a reason and I feel that I was meant to meet Terry and be blessed by his friendship and that teaching in this Christian based atmosphere.  My life has definitely changed for the better and I would highly recommend anyone that is a music lover to take advantage of this wonderful gift that this man has to offer.

I am especially grateful to my music teacher, Terry Baker for all the creativity and communications he has prepared for each lesson.  He has inspired me to learn to read music and also to be a better person.

He has developed lesson plans for the class along with written instructions.  Terry is very patient with his students when our practicing is not sufficient.

He is kind and encouraging that each person can learn piano.  His knowledge of all music is astounding.  His philosophy is whether it be piano, guitar or voice, we can all make music for the Lord.
