Testimonials

Shawn Gordon

President of ProgRock Records

"He plays at an extremely high level pretty much any instrument. In addition to that, he's able to write material, get it recorded and then also step back as a producer and objectively look at what is there and do what is right for the music. What he turns out from his studio is really top notch in terms of quality, the instrumentation, the audio, all excellent. I've also had the occasion to hire Gary as a guest musician on projects and everyone that has worked with him made comments about how easy he was to work with and the high quality of what we got back.”

"I discovered Gary Wehrkamp demonstrated the caliber of musical skills and teaching abilities you would find exclusively at prestigious music schools or in big cities.
As a guitar, piano, drum, and recording student of Gary's for over ten years now, all I can say is that Gary is THE BEST! I would highly recommend Gary to anyone looking to become a better musician.”
