· Vocal Training · Online I am a beginner vocal student who 3 months ago started in-home studio lessons with Will, and continued with online lessons after I moved to another state. He is excellent at explaining and illustrating vocal concepts and techniques. And even if you are nervous and shy about singing (like I am), he is great at making you feel comfortable. He's also good at thinking on his feet and adaptable, as at times I have had erratic work schedules or had bad vocal strain after starting a new job. Thanks for all your support and optimism, Will! Hope your business continues to flourish.

· Vocal Training · Online We are so fortunate our son is studying voice with William. He is professional while being kind and supportive offering astute instruction. He listens to the music genres our son prefers and chooses songs he enjoys learning. Also, he selects pieces that introduces our son to a broader and challenging perspective of the music industry. He is knowledgeable of the technology needed to make online learning easy and affordable. William is an exceptional teacher and a person of highest integrity.

· Singing · In studio William is experienced in voice from Opera to Musical Theater. He has a good ear and is an excellent accompanist. He's been providing the feedback necessary for me to develop my voice in new ways. And he's pushing me to expand my comfort zone, which I think is good! I'm enjoying these lessons immensely.
