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’ve taken lessons from William for several years. He helped me choose several of my guitars and worked with me on my acoustic, classical and electric guitars. His knowledge is extensive as guitars are his life. I’ve had other guitar instructors who teach to make money, or on the side. William on the other hand, teaches because he lives guitar, it’s his passion.
William is exceptional with many of the technical aspects that improved my playing efficiency and increased my safety on the guitar. You might ask, “What do I mean by safety?” He taught me how to hold my guitar and reinforces playing it in a manner that reduces the potential for injuries and allows me to play for longer periods of time without getting tired. That’s very important if you love the guitar!
No matter what style of playing I’m interested in, William has been excellent in showing me how to achieve the sound I’m looking for. If I want to play a particular song and he doesn’t know it, all I have to do is play it on I-Tunes for him. He immediately shows me how to play the song, or adapt it to my level so that I can.
William is a patient and enthusiastic teacher that encourages and challenges me to continue to improve. That’s why I continue to take lessons from him and recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning to play.
William had been my teacher for about two years before I relocated to another city and he’s the best instructor I’ve ever had. William had a great level of patience. He’s methodical with his lesson plans, and he’s very analytical. His lessons are challenging and there is never a dull moment. Most importantly, he’s passionate about music and he’ll inspire you to love music as much as he does. I highly recommend William!
