Play By Heart! Find Your Musical Voice
Want to learn to express yourself through music? Bill can teach you how because he understands what that takes, no matter what your level is. Beginner? He won't teach you the notes on the page at first ... not until you need them. Intermediate or advanced? He'll take you below the theory you've already learned to express who you are as a musician. As you get comfortable with that he'll teach you the new theory you need to express yourself more completely.
"Good technique alone is rarely satisfying to either player or listener and can sound like the makeup is wearing the face. When a student learns technique or theory apart from how he's feeling, his playing usually lacks soul ... his soul!" BR
Learning with Bill you'll develop your ear and unique voice so you go beyond 'sounding like' someone else and sound like the unique musician you are.
