Learn the fiddle from a teacher with a great background in Scottish, Irish, Old Time, other styles.
I can work with new fiddle students. I also enjoy helping those with a basic background to find the right tune that will help them develop their skills, as well as to explore new enjoyable styles.

I have never had such a wonderful instructor! He is very wise and kind.

I am a beginner; I'll leave it at that.

My first lesson with William was fantastic and relieving. For a person who has no musical background, I was very nervous coming into these lessons, I even had practice equipment that was sub-par. However, William was extremely patient with me, helped me to operate the sub-par equipment, and directed me to getting decent equipment. His calm nature and patience put me at great ease and I actually felt more confident in pursuing my desire to play the pipes.
