Hello, My name is William! I'm a singer/ songwriter, and guitar player. I have experience teaching music in private lessons as well as in groups, and I have experience delivering university style lectures. My B.A. is in English and History. I specialize in teaching beginners and students with experience. Like any guitar teacher, my lessons are designed to explain how the instrument works, and where to put your fingers, but I try to move past this to where students understand why the instrument works the way it does, why each placement of fingers produces the sounds it does, what a song is saying lyrically and musically, and the relevant history of both pop/rock music and the guitar itself which has lead to our present state. Please Email me your questions. I look forward to our first lesson.

William knows the guitar very well and is great at teaching/explaining the basics to someone like me who has limited knowledge. I am confident that my skills will greatly improve with William as my instructor/teacher.
