Edmond Music Lessons
M.M. in Music production and jazz performance from the University of Central Oklahoma, guitarist Dyron Batey has been steadily building his name as a compelling performer and inspiring teacher. After graduating in 1999 with a BA in Music Performance from the University of Central Oklahoma, Dyron has spent the majority of his career teaching out of the Edmond Music studio. Playing and teaching music is a passion of his and he feels fortunate that he has had the opportunity to help people of all ages learn more about music everyday.
