All music is written with some guidelines mind. I can bring music theory to you in an interesting and understandable way. I use written work, ear training, and a bit of sight reading to help you master the basics of music.

About William P.

Hello everyone. My journey into teaching has opened up so many doors for me and has made me a better instructor. I have been participating in music programs from the age of 3. Music is my passion. I have learned many instruments along the way, and I have pressed through to achieve not only my academic aspirations, but my personal goals as well. I tailor my lessons to my students, pin pointing what we need to work on, and reinforcing what is already going well. I can come to you in person, or via internet. My goal is to help you reach your goals musically, and to encourage you in your journey to becoming a musician.

We had only 30 minutes and we jumped straight to doing warm-ups. He was quickly able to tell what I needed to work on we started doing exercises.

I started my singing class today.I was so happy to meet Mr. William, when it was time for me to pick an instructor something just told me to choose him and I’m glad I did because the way he teaches is unbelievable.

I've been waiting to learn piano for 40 years and Will made it easy and fun. I was thrilled to be playing my first song with both hands by the end of my first lesson.

I’ve been working with Will for around two years. In this time Will has pushed me to be the best I can be. Not only is Will a great teacher but he is also a great person. Thanks to Will I have reached new heights in my singing. I couldn’t have done it without him. I would 100% recomend Will to anyone who is looking for an amazing voice teacher.

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.

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.

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.
