Hello, my name is Will Ruff, and I have been a Violist and Violinist for about 12 years, and a Mandolinist for about 4 years! I study music performance and jazz at the University of Georgia, play viola in the UGA Symphony, and play/write music for my band. Music is my life, and I believe music should be accessible and played by people from all walks of life. I want to help people discover passion and appreciation for all genres of music, and most importantly have fun while doing so!
Will is encouraging, insightful, and patient! My very first violin lesson couldn't have gone better. There was helpful critiquing and a fair amount of pats on the back when it came to small victories. For a beginner like myself, that kept my morale on the up and up. Will carries a positive and understanding attitude which makes me eager for our next lesson!+ Read More
My daughter was really happy with the lesson.
Will is enthusiastic in his teaching and easy to work with.
Will's a great instructor. Very knowledgeable, passionate, and patient. Has a wide range of influences and inspirations. Can't go wrong with this man!
Will is a very talented mandolinist and natural instructor! A+ !
Lesson was great. Will seems to be a good fit for my young adult son. They covered a lot of material and are off to a great start after the first lesson. I am looking forward to future lessons.
I'm only a few weeks in to lessons with Will and it's been an incredibly enjoyable experience. He's super patient, very punctual, and explains things in a way that not only make sense, but are actionable as well. Unlike lessons I've taken in the past, his teaching actually makes me want to practice. I see progress with each lesson and that goes a long way in strengthening my desire to continue!+ Read More
Mr. Will is a strapping young man with a knack for the violin! I look forward to fiddle lessons in the future (they are the same instrument!)
Loved Mr. Ruff’s energy and diverse knowledge of how to approach classical music while having a huge appreciation, practice, and love for all genres!
