Guest, I don't get what you're saying in your post just above. And I Googled "Richard York" and came up with nothing that made sense.

I attended the U. of W. School of Music, not to learn to play the guitar or sing folk songs (I already had a good classic guitar teacher who taught privately, and I knew they wouldn't let me in on the basis of folk music--not "serious" enough for them, and that was more the province of the English Lit. Department), but because I wanted the courses in music theory.

Between two years at the U. of W. School of Music and another two years at the Cornish College of the Arts (a sort of conservatory), I got the musical education I was after.
