Hello, and welcome to my profile ! My name is William and I’m a producer, guitarist and music educator based in Miami, Florida. I am an easy going person, patient and positive. Very empathetic and understanding which helps me bond well with my students and build rapport rather quickly. I like to keep track of every student advances on a weekly basis filling out a dedicated Excel spreadsheet for each student with parameters that help me speed up the learning curve in an organic and effortless way. I’m an honest, highly ethical individual, respectful and professional in all my endeavors. Get in touch with me, let's make the musical journey together in an extremely efficient way. My personal method has been in constant development during my 25 years as an educator and its learning curve is quite effective and fun !
