Overview

Hello everyone. I have a bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance from Valley Forge Christian College and I have been performing since I was three years old. I play several instruments and have learned the key skills needed to be a successful musician in any genre. With five years teaching experience and a willingness to learn, I have discovered new ways to help my students become better musicians. I can show you the ways to hone your skills through different drills and practice strategies. Also, I can teach you ways to keep your instrument working at top shape by keeping your physical health in good condition. I want to teach you what you want to know with a little push to expand your abilities. I can also give you great tips ln running, and help you with your biblical studies. I hope to hear from you soon.

I taught the teen band how to play as a group. I also taught a little music theory to help them grow as musicians. By assigning homework I was able to help them understand worship in the Bible a little better and why we worship in the church today. By having one on one sessions, I was able to help each person grow individually as well.

· Vocal Training · In home My daughter has been taking lessons with Will for just over a year. I am amazed by the progress she has made. The goals she set a year ago were easily attained with Will's guidance and training. In addition, he is incredible flexible, kind and compassionate.
We look forward to the growth we know our daughter will achieve in the coming year working with Will.

· Piano · In home William has been a wonderful instructor for our 8 years old. He has been patient and has found ways to both explain music and also make it interesting. Will has even modified complex music to an easy to play version so our son could play a song he loved. His musical growth over the last 7 months has been remarkable and its in large part due to Will's low key, thoughtful, patient approach.

· Singing · In home Will has been my son's teacher for about six months now. He is knowledgeable and has taught Vincent how to sing from his diaphram, open his jaw more while he is singing, and not to push to hard when singing low notes, just to name a few. He has the education under his belt, which is a big plus. Every question Vincent had for him he knew. He also comes to my home for the lessons, which is wonderful. I would recommend him to anyone young or old.
