He offers all the right instructions to give you peace of mind and trust in yourself in order to really understand the guitar. He exemplifies the kind of qualities that I find most admirable in a person, and I really can't speak highly enough about him. He is incredibly experienced, and he is always learning and passing that on. He is so reliable, and I always look forward to my lessons! I highly recommend him as a teacher!

feedback on lessons and teacher Any time one takes up something new in later life it is a challenge to stay with it and not sink back into comfy life. i have enjoyed my singing lessons with William though it took me a couple to get past my self-conscousness. It helped that he moved the lessons to a church--from his home. Better setting for singing practice. And william has done a great job of matching our lessons to how i want to develop my voice.

I walked into the first lesson having absolutely no knowledge of guitar. It was nice to have a teacher that not only taught me how to play chords but also gave me a little bit of history of the guitar. Now, only three months later, I can proudly say that I know enough to play whatever song I want! He's very patient and encouraging. I would recommend him to anyone.
