Teacher's Studio

Bill is an excellent teacher. He personalized my lessons to correspond with my experience and what I was trying to achieve with lessons. I realized after the first lesson I was already looking and seeing notes the fretboard differently, really, that was just the first lesson! While I've been playing for almost 35 years, I knew I still had lots to learn. Bill is a talented, accomplished, and easy to work with teacher. I definitely recommend him.

Bill is a very good teacher, seasoned, skillful, and patient. My son got very interested since learning from him, very flexible too, sometimes to our last minute change, highly recommended!

Bill has helped me build a foundation with guitar playing with understanding the fretboard to building chords anywhere on the fretboard. Bill has also helped me with my rhythm and incorporating building chords and learning scales. Bill has challenged me and simultaneously been flexible with my schedule. He has made guitar-playing fun and inspired me to learn more and to challenge myself.
