About Will F.

Will teaches: Ages 5 and up
Special needs
Teaching since: October 2013
Last sign in: Yesterday


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 warm-ups and am working with one of my top guitar students tomorrow on different scale techniques. I just placed a drum student in the finals in Alternative Press Magazine's Hit Like A Girl competition. She was the top vote getter with 1,026 votes and is in the top 10 under 18 drummers in the world. 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 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 get it down! 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. I look forward to speaking with you! Cheers!

I love working at Joy Of Music School. It has been a wonderful experience. I just graduated Raven Powell from the school she was one of my best students ever and we are going to continue to work together even though she has graduated from the school. Waiting for more students for the fall!

In ten minutes will was able to explain to me a concept to me that I hadn't grasped after 4 other instructors.

He's the man and I recommend him.

The first lesson was great and I like my instructor because he is knowledgeable. I made a great decision to learn how to play guitar with takelessons.

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.
