I offer my students 3 recitals a year in some very nice halls around New York, where they would get a chance to perform their music in front of an audience of friends and family.

Performing is a great way to see as a student what you do well and what you can improve in. Each performance gains a level of experience that can not be gain by just playing for yourself. Through this experience you will learn what it takes to get better as a musician.

Don was wonderful with our son Brett, who enjoyed his first lesson immensely. We are definitely in this for the long haul with Don! He was very patient and very attentive to Brett.

Had a great first lesson with Don. I believe I will progress nicely under his tutelage. Already have a lot to work on.

Years ago I took Guitar Lessons at a local music store ( a very prominent one) as a raw beginner and quickly became frustrated with my lack of progress. Although my teacher was a great player and "very hot" to look at I soon began to feel like I was merely his "practice dummy."... I'd play the chords he showed me, endlessly,... while he seemed to be just practicing his solo playing. ... I then tried On-Line Lessons from various sites which were actually even less helpful and soon just lost interest completely.
A friend of mine said she had taken lessons from a Don DeBold for about 5 years before going off to college and highly recommended him.
I've now been taking lessons from Don for almost 2 years and having a blast ! I've learned how to play along with most of my favorite songs (mainly Blues and Rock) and now I'm learning to play Solo Guitar that needs no accompaniment !
Unlike my first teacher, during many lessons Don barely plays or even has his Strat on his lap because he's busy concentrating on what I'm doing !
He's a stickler yet lots of fun at the same time> I super recommend him as a Guitar and Music Teacher !!! Aneiah J.

I've been teaching voice for almost 30 years. Every voice student I've prepared for college auditions have gotten into their programs and many have received scholarships based on the strength of their auditions. I have also successfully prepared students for musical theater auditions and Allstate Chorus. I teach sight singing and music theory for the singer in addition to solid vocal technique.

Due to the Covid-19, my lesson with Mary Frances became online. Whether in-home or online, she is very knowledgeable and teaches precisely which no other teacher took the time and taught me. Therefore, I learn tremendously more from her than any other teachers I had in the past. She herself takes lessons from great masters and has been constantly learning to sharpen her skills. She is also very gentle and patient. I love working with her very much and would recommend her to anyone who wants to improve singing skills!
Andre
I thoroughly enjoyed Mary Frances' approach to singing. Though I could not continue taking classes with her because I had moved, I was very happy with her instruction and her knowledge. Highly recommend

Mary Frances is a patient and very experienced instructor. She explains voice theory and placement well and easily demonstrates technique to students. Her experience and knowledge as a teacher and especially as a performer is priceless. I highly recommend her.

For the first 10 years I wrote songs, I was almost always the youngest person in the room. Then, I found myself working for many years with artists and writers of my own age group. Now, as time has marched on, I am most often the "old guy" at the party, as we work on music for TV shows. I think this gives me a unique perspective. I have a 40 year history as a professional songwriter, and I still make music every day. The incredible opportunities and relationships that I have had with amazing artists of all sorts remain a source of inspiration. As a writer, producer/engineer, and bass player, I have helped create hit songs over 4 decades. I have been so fortunate to work with a wide variety of artists, such as Emmylou Harris, Marcy Playground, Fuel, Dolly Parton, Jeffrey Gaines, Sunshine, the Badlees, and many more. As a Voting Member of the Grammy Academy, I have advocated for young and creatively new artists.

I have been given two ASCAP PLUS Awards for mentoring and co-creating ...

Great job working with me to help me hone my songwriting skills... Bob's clear knowledge of songwriting and the music business in general was extremely helpful... I'd recommend Bob's expertise for any aspiring songwriter or someone interested in how the music business works...

I’ve been writing songs with Bob on and off since 1989, I think it was. He’s the best: inventive – lyrically and melodically; with a deep understanding of musical structure and a wealth of experience. Our songs have aired on several cable shows and songs of mine he produced and played on were used on NBC, ABC, FOX, public television, as well as on German TV, Sirius, and radio stations around the world. You’ll get what you paid for: Bob’s the real deal.

“First-rate compositions,” wrote Ken Tucker ("Entertainment Weekly" and radio’s "Fresh Air") of Williams’ songs. Both "Publishers Weekly" and "School Library Journal" highly recommend Williams’ two CDs for children. "One out of thousands!” wrote a reviewer for Europe’s "Radio Marabu" of Williams’s pop/folk-rock CD, “...true, honest music…a priceless treasure for a lifetime.”
Richard
Bob is the real deal! Bob brings a wealth of skills, knowledge and experience to any project. His approach is always a cooperative effort with an uncomplicated goal of a soulful melody over intriguing lyrics and chords. I've know Bob for more than 30 years.

Amazing with my 10 year old daughter
Tracey
We met Katie a few months ago and we’re so glad we did! She is kind, compassionate and patient. She has taught my daughter how to expand her vocal range and she is helping to boost her confidence by encouraging her to perform on stage. I really feel that my daughter has greatly improved since she started lessons with Katie and I know she’s only going to get better with Katie as her coach. Finally I just have to add that Katie has a beautiful voice. The first time I heard her sing I got chills and when she sang at a group performance I actually got teary eyed. Her voice moved me because she had so much emotion and that’s exactly the kind of coach I want for my daughter.

Mrs. Sherman is a wonderful music teacher. My daughter started in her class at preschool when she was 2 years old. She was shy and timid but Sherman’s music class really helped her shine. She loves singing and playing the piano! She’s got amazing rhythm and Sherman really helped bring that out in her. Sherman has such great talent and the teaching skills to go with it. She’s great with children and it shows much she enjoys what she does

"My daughter started lessons with Ellen in person before the pandemic and shifted to online lessons since the pandemic. In both formats Ellen has been excellent in providing professional guidance, new tools / exercises, but most importantly, she has been able to help my daughter gain her confidence back and actually enjoy learning more about her self through her voice. I highly recommend Ellen, she’s always been responsive, responsible, on time, and extremely professional while also warm and approachable."
