What Students

Are Saying

"Will Does a great job of customizing his teaching methods to suit the learner. He has helped me to break down the process of guitar playing into simple steps that I can practice and improve on. His instruction motivated me to grow as a guitar player."

Matt Metcalf, Student

"After years of learning guitar being on my bucket list, fate reconnected me with Will, a former classmate of mine from Placer to make that bucket list wish a reality. I thought he was fantastic in high school, but his dedication to music has made him nothing short of phenomenal. His coaching keeps me motivated to continue learning, and he is opening up more spots for lessons. So if you are interested in lessons, this is THE man to teach you!"
