a year-round waiting list to study with Terry Salyer. As early as

his first commitment toward fulfilling those dreams by beginning
his formal study of music in the fourth grade. The dedication
continues as his calendar fills with performance, recording

See, hear, and feel,  the magic of the music of this exuberant performer
by attending a performance or clinic presentation by Terry Salyer.

Reviews . . . his study of music theory and experience as an instructor
in guitar and drums has helped him develop a fine reputation as
a studio musician. . .( Roger Kaye, Ft. Worth Star Telegram )

     This consistent progression has been a result of Terry's
continuing development of style which contains a successful
combination of dynamics, finesse and power. .

(Coast to Coast Country Magazine)

     Terry Salyer is well known in the area as one of its finest,
most versatile musicians as well as being a great teacher.
