Tuba (sousaphone) is the backbone of any band. A well played tuba can enhance the performance of any organization. Also, the tuba is becoming a popular solo instrument. I teach all these techniques as well as the basics of music.

Experience

THE SCIENCE OF MUSIC.
Jan 1972 - Present
CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND PRIVATE LESSONS.

Have taught music for over 30 years. I believe in the total value of music. Ear Training, instrument techniques, composition, etc. The science of music involves much more than just making noise on an instrument. Turning that noise into beautiful music is a major endeavor and a goal in all my teaching.

Guitar · In studio

I am very impressed with Williams teaching methods and I believe he genuinely cares about my musical success. He goes above and beyond to help me out and is very knowledgeable in his craft. Also, he is very patient as well. I am very pleased with William as my guitar teacher.

Trumpet · In studio

Our son is taking trumpet lessons with William & is learning rhythm, etc. Those things he didn't get in Kansas; the elementary school students learned just the basics. We know the kids have to start somewhere, but we're so glad our son is learning things he won't find in school. William has an impressive teaching background; it blows my mind that he can play all of these instruments!

Clarinet · In studio

I've had 3 lessons with Bill. He is very knowledgeable and believes in teaching the basics of music so that you have a better understanding of how it all goes together. It is a great pleasure to work with him and I expect to do so for a long time. By the way I am nearly 78 years old and have played the clarinet off and on since I was in 5th grade. And now I am being taught the foundation of music for the first time which I have always needed. It is going to make my appreciation of playing so much greater in the future.
