Mr. Wright

 Piano Instructor 


Mr. Wright McCargar has taught and performed since he was 5 years old, when he started piano lessons. His time at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp really cemented his love for music. He played in various groups which led to his first gig at the company party of one of his band member's parents.

Wright continued to study music privately through high school. He attended Michigan State University, where he received a B.A. in Music Ed. He is also a Certified Recording Engineer through RAIA and Grand Awards winner through Grand Rapids Theater. 

If Wright is not teaching, you can find him camping or woodworking. However, those will always be hobbies because Wright knew he would be a music instructor ever since he was inspired by his high school music director. This is what would drive him to start the Piano Cottage. He helped to cultivate it's signature collaborative spirit for families, students, and teachers. 

You can catch Wright performing in all sorts of groups, such as the  River City Jazz Band, Fountain Street Church, Amy Young and Mood Swings, various combos, and the West Michigan New Horizons Bands. He has served as music director for both Civic Theatre and Circle Theatre the past several years and looks forward to returning to the podium as soon as performances restrictions are eased from the pandemic. Former student, Tony Moceri, who is studying music at Michigan State University, often performs in local theatre as well.
