About William

I have been teaching private trumpet lessons since 2009. I am currently pursuing a Master of Music at Northwestern University, where I also received a Bachelor of Music in 2013. Since 2012 I have been an active performer, playing with the Civic Orchestra of Chicago (until 2014), the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, and as a highly-regarded freelance classical musician in the Central Florida region. Many of my middle and high school students have been selected for all-district and all-state bands.

I welcome students of all ages and ability levels. I have experience teaching middle school through college trumpet students.

I have won prizes at many competitions, including International Trumpet Guild Competitions, the National Trumpet Competition, and the Fischoff Chamber Music Compeitition. I strive to make music fun and enjoyable to my students while challenging them to be the best they can be.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Basketball

I have played basketball for as long as I can remember. I played on middle school and high school teams and play pick-up basketball on a weekly basis to this day. I have continued to play in adult leagues. I have worked with a few younger players to help train them with one-on-one and two-on-one sessions. My experience includes basketball skills training and basketball specific workouts.

Chess

I have been playing chess since I was 7 years old and love the game. I play chess on an almost daily basis. I enjoy reading and learning about stress strategies and enjoy sharing ideas with others. I am no grand master, but I have experience teaching other subjects and a good understanding of the game of chess.

Ear Training

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from Northwestern University. While there, I completed six music theory and ear training courses over two years with an "A" average in each. I am an active performer who frequently practices singing pieces I have to perform. I use movable Do solfege.

Golf

I have been playing golf since I was 8 years old; my dad taught me the game when we lived near a golf course. I played on school teams in middle school and high school as well as junior golf tournaments in high school during the summer. I have a 10 handicap. I can drive the ball over 300 yards (my longest is 358). I enjoy helping people learn new skills and improve.

Trumpet

I have been playing the trumpet for 14 years. I have a Bachelor's Degree from Northwestern University in Trumpet Performance. I have been playing professionally for the past 4 years in orchestras and as a freelance musician. I have held a teaching position with a youth orchestra program. I have been a regular trumpet teacher at a middle school. I have run week-long high school band camps as a trumpet instructor.

Great first lesson

My son was very impressed and is excited to continue lessons with William. He is very patient and focused on good playing technique and musicality right from the start. So far so good!
