About Will

Hello! My name is Will. I was born in New York, but grew up in Fayetteville, North Carolina. I currently reside in Raleigh.

I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I majored in Music and minored in Chinese.

I earned my music teaching license through the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. Throughout my music career, I have performed with orchestral, jazz, and Latin ensembles. I was also very active in marching band and served as trumpet section leader in high school and college. Throughout middle school and high school, I made the honors band every year, my most successful year being the 12th grade where I sat first chair in the Cumberland County All County Band in Fayetteville.

My parents were born in China and I grew up speaking Cantonese. I looked to further my Chinese comprehension skills in college and therefore began to take Chinese courses. I received 2nd place in the 2012 UNC Chinese Essay Writing Contest and 1st place in the 2013 Chinese Speech Contest.

My teaching methods focuses on helping my students discover their own personal approach in learning. No two individuals are exactly alike so I understand that what works for me may not work for my students. I believe that when a student finds what "clicks" with them, they will soar exponentially. I help my students find their own unique learning style through patience and steady pacing. My teaching will also focus on instilling individual discipline as part of my students' routine. My students will realize that they need to desire success in order to achieve success.
