Experienced teacher of 40 years, with a strong background in classical piano. I have been fortunate to have studied with three superb piano teachers throughout my life, and have learned from each how to relate to students and encourage a deeper knowledge of the repertoire, as well as solid practicing and performance technique. I am not intimidating at all and I meet each student where she/he happens to be on the musical journey.

About Will D.

I'm a professional pianist/ accompanist with over 40 years experience as a teacher and performer. I enjoy helping students progress and increase their ability, as well as their musicianship. If you give time to practicing, the piano will give back much more, and become a rich part of your life.

I have known Will for many years. He is an incredibly talented musician and an excellent teacher. I worked with Will in a number of musical shows and projects in our area and started classical piano with him when I was 30. In a very short period of time, I was playing with confidence and went on to write, record, and release two full-length original pop albums using piano as a main source of instrumentation! Will is highly recommended!

Will Duchon is an excellent piano teacher. He not only teaches technique with great clarity, but most importantly, he possesses the wonderful ability to convey a deep sense of musicality to his students. He does this with patience and passion, with a focus on the joy of musical learning rather than simply the pieces themselves. He knows how to balance challenge with fun, while gently encouraging and motivating his students every step of the way. I highly recommend Will without hesitation!
