Teaching since:

Hello and nice to meet you! My name is Will. I strive to keep my lessons fun, and thorough. I teach Ableton Live, Dj skills and proficiency, sound design, and audio production.

I have been a Dj and Ableton Live user for just under a decade, and have been teaching private lessons for many years as well. My classes are well organized and informative, and have been built off of many years of experience. It's not hard to find someone who knows how to DJ or use Ableton, but not many people have as much experience in teaching these fields as myself. I have taught large groups in high school and middle school settings, and also many dozens of one on one students.
I owned and operated Two Ten Beat, a Dj and Audio Production Academy before it's closing, and served many satisfied students as an instructor.

I am also an instructor and consultant for The AM Project, a non profit program designed to empower youth though fun and modern education programs. I helped write the curriculum for, and taught the group Dj lessons. I continue to work with them on a consultant basis, and part time instructor. Please visit theamproject.org for more info!

Let's get things started! I'm ready to be your instructor, and help you reach your musical goals!

Two Ten Beat

Two Ten Beat School was a dj and production Academy located in San Antonio Texas. We taught classes in dj proficiency and audio production using Ableton Live software, and many satisfied students. We decided to switch to a one on one format for our lesson programs in December of 2015, and permanently closed out San Antonio campus. The same program we taught at Two Ten Beat School is still available through private lessons, so don't fret!

If you want a professional, knowledgeable instructor, Will is your man. On time, on point and will go as fast or slow as you want. Whether you are a beginner wanting to get started or a professional wanting to hone your skills, give Will a call.

William edited some music for my wedding's father- daughter dance and for the competitive dance team I coach. He was extremely patient with my very specific requests - which speaks volumes about his demeanor with students. William was respectful of my time and answered all emails and phone calls in a timely fashion.
