Overview

I teach guitar, drums and vocals to an array of students ranging from 10 to 60. Not only do I teach but I also write songs for certain students who have a desire to perform their own music as well as learning and honing their craft on their instrument. I am currently helping a vocal student of mine write some songs after scales and warmups and am working with one of my top guitar students tomorrow on different scale techniques. I am also working with more and more students on songwriting and showing them different chords and ways to go about writing a song. I am currently getting two of my students ready for talent shows and I am working on a drum video with one of my drum students (of course). I would love to get started with you as soon as possible and we will get you where you want to be musically. I find that if a student has a particular song or a rhythm pattern they want to learn they learn more quickly. They're learning and having fun at the same time. We will find what you want to learn and we will learn it. Furthermore, it's your choice if you would rather come to my place as a lot of my students do or have me come to your place as a lot of them do. It matters not. I look forward to speaking with you! Have a great day! ps...oh be sure to check out my sample MP3s in the videos section for some examples of my work and work with other students. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE IT Will has been excellent in showing me the fun of music, from the very first lesson. He has a tremendous amount of knowledge and is able to communicate it in an effective manner. He has always been prompt and prepared for our weekly sessions. January 17, 2013
