Billy Maerdian
Schedule: Mon – Thu
Billy Maerdian began learning how to play musical instruments at the age of 10. Starting with piano then drums and guitar, he quickly found his passion in life. During this time, he started collaborating with other local musicians which led to composing, recording, and performing with bands in the Sacramento area. Following high school, he immediately pursued a music degree at CSUS and graduated with a B.A. in music performance with an emphasis on jazz drumming. In his professional career Billy teaches private music lessons, performs regularly, and records with many bands in the Northern California region. Some of these groups/artists include Runaway Stage Productions, Element Brass Band, and the Centerpoint Community Church. He also worked as a drum tech for Sacramento public schools and spent 2 years building world class audio recording hardware for Millenia Media. In addition to over a decade of private teaching experience he also received a teaching credential in 2018 and has taught music at several schools in the Sacramento area such as Mira Loma High School, Loomis Basin Charter, and Sacramento Country Day. One of Billy’s biggest goals is to help his students express their own voice through music so they can create and perform songs that will continue to inspire others.
