Misty L. Butler began showing an interest in music early in life and began singing in church at a young age. At age ten, she started taking piano lessons and was playing at church soon afterward. She took years of piano lessons as a child, and in adulthood she studied piano and songwriting from notable artists in the Christian music industry.  


Through music courses she took at Western Kentucky University and tests she passed through the Music Teachers National Association, Misty became a Nationally Certified Piano Teacher in 2009. Misty now has over twenty years of experience teaching students of all ages and levels. She also teaches ukulele, loves performing in the community and for worship services, enjoys playing around on her acoustic guitar and bass guitar, and has a passion for music theory. Also a writer, Misty has been published fourteen times in international magazines, authored a few books, and composed two piano teaching books.

Debbie graduated from WKU with a B. M. E. and an M. A. in Music Education. She taught public school music for 32 years in the Warren County School System. Since retiring, she has also worked at WKU as an adjunct professor and student teaching supervisor. However, she really enjoys her work as a private piano instructor. “It gives me so much pleasure to watch the students grow, both musically and physically. Many students are playing in their churches and for school events now. I feel like they are my adopted children.I am very appreciative to work alongside other passionate musicians at All Things Guitar.”


Mike Clark, throughout his years as a musician, has enjoyed honing his skills as a guitarist focusing mainly on rock, southern rock and blues.  Playing both acoustic and electric instruments, Mike has also extensive experience playing slide guitar and working with alternate tunings, alternate picking techniques and ear training for learning songs by ear.

Whether a student is wanting to learn basic chords, scales and strumming techniques or more advanced chord structuring, arpeggios, slide or lead guitar patterns, we have  a way to make it fun and interesting to learn your instrument. We can even dive into learning how to get the best tones from your electric guitar and amplifier combinations in live situations.


I have been teaching drum students for 15 years. I have taught students with no prior drumming skills, to students who are preparing for School band and to those wanting to learn how to play a drum kit. I have taught students who favor country to those who love rock and others who prefer praise and worship. All in all my passion for drumming drives me to help others in their creativity in drumming. Give us a call to schedule your lesson!
