Bill Dederer and his wife Julie, also a life-long educator, came out in March of '03, and purchased a condo in the Village of Oak Creek for their future retirement.Bill, whose credentials are as long and inspiring as Sedona's hiking trails, was then dean of the Conservatory of Music at Capitol University, in Ohio.He holds bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees in music education and music performance.He has played trumpet for prestigious philharmonic, opera and ballet orchestras, taught trumpet and conducted ensembles and choirs from elementary school to college.Dederer has headed departments and colleges and has collected nearly four decades of honors in a career of music education.

"Working here never occurred to us, until some time in April, I was feeling uneasy, feeling there was something else I needed to be doing."
Forces at work suggested to him that, "maybe I should get on with the career I said I was going to have, which was public school music."Dederer and his wife thought: maybe Sedona sooner rather than later.
...
And, Dederer appears to be the right person at the right time.
...
Dederer has become a pivotal addition to the district's staff.Into Dederer's backpack the superintendent stuffed the weighty title of District Facilitator for Performing Arts Program Development, along with a full course load of music to teach at the high school.
"The first step is to figure out where we are and what we want the programs to look like down the road," said Dederer."My impression is that there's little or no communication among the schools to be doing similar things in the arts."
For the students there is no tradition carried forward from the elementary through the junior high up to the high school.
He was surprised to find that the first course he was to teach was "choir/ jazz band.These are things that do not go together well, as they say on Sesame Street," said Dederer.
Then, the drum class: "I quickly expanded the drum class into a percussion ensemble with different instruments."
By the end of the semester, the group had mastered a couple of simple but legitimate pieces they could perform.Dederer changed the title of that course to Instrumental Ensembles.
"Whatever you play, take this course and I will create ensembles appropriate to your instrument," he said.He believes that it doesn't serve the students well to teach them by rote.It is the teacher's duty to give them the independence that learning musical concepts and learning to read music allows.
He also put himself out on a limb with drama teacher Terry Bramwell.Dederer had been here about five days when he said, "It is deplorable that the musical at the high school is using a CD for its accompaniment - it's no more than karaoke."
And with a confidence rooted in accomplishments, he continued, "We will have live musicians in the orchestra pit."He had no idea where he was going to get them.
The show at the high school is Little Shop of Horrors, and it needs is a ‘50s rock band.He got welcomed relief from musician and Arts and Culture commissioner, Steve Douglas who promised to get him, pro bono, an appropriate professional ensemble to play in the pit.
"And I'm going to conduct it," said Dederer."It'll be great fun!"
This semester Dederer's total enrollment has doubled from 25 to 50."The instrumental ensembles and steel drum bands are approaching maximum enrollment," said Dederer."I'd love to have more in choir."
"When I first talked to Dr. Randall, I said, ‘what you're talking about will take about five years to see much difference at the high school level,' and she said that sounded right to her," said Dederer.
