I've been studying with Bill for years, and I benefit from him tremendously! As a teacher myself, I love how he strikes a balance between letting me set the direction for a lesson with my questions and goals but also how he is sure to focus on things that all guitar players must know to get better. I feel like I leave every lesson with lots more tools for my toolbox. Highly recommend!
Peter
I've been studying with Bill for years, and as a teacher myself, I love his approach to lessons. I always leave each session with a bunch of new ideas for my toolbox for how to approach the particular tune we're working on. Bill is the perfect balance of letting me set the direction for my lessons by telling him what is challenging me or what I want to learn and having a professional guitarist decide on and teach me the things that every musician needs to know. Highly recommend!
Jesse
Bill instructs both of my children. One (14)on bass for about a year and a half. The other (10) on ukulele for about 6 months. They both enjoy their lessons and his teaching style. I have seen consistent growth in their playing. So happy to have found Bill!

I teach good playing technique and broadly applicable musical knowledge by working on music you actually want to play. I've played and worked with students on Bach sonatas, Dylan/Donovan style fingerpicking, jazz comping and solos, rock, metal and punk riffs, Steve Vai-esque two-hand tapping, as well as songwriting, music theory, and aural skills, so no matter what kind of music you like or how you're looking to improve, chances are I can help take you do it. Intermediate level and above.

Brendon is amazing teacher. Between running my business and raising a family, I don’t have much time for practice, but Brendon always helps me to catch up if my practice takes a back seat for a week or two. He creates supportive atmosphere and after the lesson I am always reinvigorated to practice more.

Catherine
So I usually don’t leave reviews. But God has used Kevin to help improve my skills in keyboard playing. In less than 3 months with and average of an hour lesson a week. I went from only feeling comfortable in playing in 2 scales to playing in 5 of the 7 scales. Also I didn’t realize how bad my rhythm was but once Kevin began working with me I made major improvements. I’ve also learned to play fundamental chord progressions on the major scale. Kevin listens to what you want to accomplish and works alongside you to accomplish this. He is also kind and very well skilled. Needless to say God has used Kevin to help me and will continue to use him to help me. So what are you waiting for? Please book worth every penny
Cordelia B.
I have been taking singing lessons from Kevin for 5 weeks. He appears to possess a legitimate love for music as well as the understanding that I am looking for someone who can teach me the fundamental elements of music. I don’t just want someone to tell me how to rearrange a song. I am looking for someone who will offer me the “how to” from the bottom up. I suspect I am one of his more difficult students. I am older, never done anything musical but have always wanted to sing without frightening people off. He is patient, an excellent communicator and seems to understand my quest. I always enjoy my hour with him and walk away wishing I could afford more lessons. I highly recommend you give him a shot.

Keith
I’ve been taking lessons from Kevin for about 2 months. Before that I’d been kind of aimlessly playing around with guitar. I was playing by myself for about 20 years and basically had no timing and rhythm. I’m not a funk master yet but Kevin has given me tools that have greatly improved my timing and for the first time actually believing that I’m going to do this. Thanks
