Hi, my name is Bill F. and am very interested in excited about the possibility of helping students reach their highest level of performance in four areas: piano, bass guitar, table tennis and PSAT testing. I have played piano (40 years), majored in music and graduated in psychology from Ohio State University (PhD), played bass guitar (multiple bands 1962-present), table tennis (50 years--have a pretty good game), and have worked with a wide variety of students on maximizing their test taking potential and overcoming test anxiety before retiring from psychology. I am new to the field of private lessons, but am confident that I can help you discover the joys similar to those that I have experienced in the above areas. I am 64, in good health, and have been married for 31 years, have three children whom I have coached in soccer, baseball and basketball and have helped them get a good start in life--have had great success over the years as a coach and mentor. Followed Jesus since '76.
I recently started with a new student and find the experience quite enjoyable in that the student has brought new music to my attention which has expanded my reach and repertoire of contemporary music. I enjoy figuring out new songs especially when the bass parts are challenging. I hope to see this student (who has also asked me to work out a piano arrangement) have great success as a performer with his band.
I have been dedicated to helping people from ages 3 to 101 years to optimize their potential and overcome wounds and traumas from the past for 25 years. I have used EMDR for more than 20 years. I have used EFT (emotional freedom technique) for three years. I am now focused full time on healing ministry as a follower of Jesus since 1976.
