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.

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.

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.

I was not much of a singer before seeing Will, but my singing has improved immensely with him; I had a few vocal breakthroughs during our time together. He is also exceptionally flexible in how he teaches. We were able to meld singing with song-writing and piano-self-accompaniment.

I had no prior singing experience prior to seeing Will, but I had some extremely helpful vocal breakthroughs during our time. He is also exceptionally flexible with how he teaches. We were able to meld singing lessons with piano-self-accompaniment and song-writing. Being a pianist and aspiring songwriter, this was much more than I had hoped for.
