To be honest, I initially thought I should still study with someone older in their years with 30 years experience under their belt. After having numerous instructors for guitar, I can easily say that Billy was the most effective of them all. He was extremely thorough and innovative in his approach. He helped me in all areas including repertoire and even in technique which addressed a repetitive stress injury. He is fun and makes the lesson inspiring. I would recommend Billy to players of all levels without any reservation.

Billy is passionate and detail-oriented. I have enjoyed my classical guitar lessons with him very much. While I have learnt many new pieces from him over the last two years, I find that the most important skill I have learnt from Billy is problem-solving, which is especially important when learning a complicated piece. He teaches me how to break such huge problems into smaller ones that can be solved step-by-step. I have found these principles to be applicable to a wide range of pieces and other music instrument and this has made me more confident in my music playing overall.

I've had the distinct pleasure of playing with Billy for over two years as part of The Storytellers Band in NC. From day one, he's always exhibited the utmost professionalism and reliability. Most importantly, we've all pushed one another to grow as men. He's truly a passionate, witty musician with uncanny creativity on guitar. I strongly recommend Billy for any and all musical considerations. Humbled to be a friend and brother.

I love the way Billy swings; as a bassist in his drum-less trio, it is such a pleasure to have such an "in-the-pocket" rhythmic element to work with; he excels in providing that much needed percussive piece that I always crave in other players.
