Welcome to William’s Guitar Studio. I provide quality guitar instruction in the East Valley, as well as web instruction via Skype. Thank you for stopping by.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my site. I’m a professional, classically-trained guitar instructor in the East Valley. I first arrived in the Greater Phoenix Metro Area in 1996 after earning my Bachelor of Music in Music Education, with Magna Cum Laude Honors, from Shenandoah University Conservatory, where I studied classical guitar, jazz guitar,…
I started taking lessons from William when I was 15, and continued with him for about 3 years until I moved away. The first time I talked with him on the phone, he asked me several questions about what I wanted to play, what I liked to listen to, my goals as far as the instrument and then used this information to put together a personalized lesson plan that taught me not only what I wanted to learn, but what I needed to learn to become a real guitar player. I consider William a personal friend and a mentor. Whenever I go to visit him, I find that he is still teaching me, years later. If I have any regrets from my time under William’s instruction, it’s that I never truly appreciated the quality and consistency of my lessons until I moved away. If you are looking for the best guitar instructor from beginner to expert, you’ve found him and you won’t be disappointed.
A side story,
2 years after I stopped taking lessons from William, I stopped into a guitar store in Tempe and over heard a dad asking two of the employees about lessons for his son. They directed the man to a bulletin board covered In cards from local teachers and said ” grab one that says William Geiswite”.
As a self taught guitar player of more than 20 years, I found myself “playing inside the box”. William was able to give me techniques and advice to drastically improve my playing. From beginners to more advanced players, William is phenomenal. I worked at a large music store in Tempe for 12 years and for the last several years William has been the only instructor I’ve sent my clients to. I don’t vouch for many people but I am more than confident vouching for William.
