About Michael

Michael has worked with kids for 10 years in schools and arts programs to find fun and their best self through performance. He has taught orchestra, chamber music, jazz band and music theory in the public schools, while performing in local ensembles in and around the city. He also has studied drama, voice and movement and believes all these skills help in expressing yourself--no matter what pieces you want to play!

In addition to working with students K-12, he also loves working with adults. I try to provide a nurturing atmosphere for someone trying revive or discover previously hidden musical interests!

Motivated

I'm a senior citizen that still works. I played some other instruments when I was younger and always wanted to play piano and Michael has motivated me to continue to learn and fit my practice into my work schedule. Anyone who wants to learn to play an instrument should look no further then Michael.

In learning the double bass, the student learns proper hand technique, intonation and the ins and outs of the instrument. The student learns the basics from the ground up, if needed.

Our son is taking trumpet lessons with William & is learning rhythm, etc. Those things he didn't get in Kansas; the elementary school students learned just the basics. We know the kids have to start somewhere, but we're so glad our son is learning things he won't find in school. William has an impressive teaching background; it blows my mind that he can play all of these instruments!

I've had 3 lessons with Bill. He is very knowledgeable and believes in teaching the basics of music so that you have a better understanding of how it all goes together. It is a great pleasure to work with him and I expect to do so for a long time. By the way I am nearly 78 years old and have played the clarinet off and on since I was in 5th grade. And now I am being taught the foundation of music for the first time which I have always needed. It is going to make my appreciation of playing so much greater in the future.

I also have been a language and reading tutor for over 6 years and have worked with students with special needs for over 10 years.
