Originally from the suburbs of Washington D.C., Will has been involved with music for a long time. He got his start at several prestigious private studios and has since held concerts ranging from solo classical performances to headlining at local clubs with his quartet. Ever since moving to New York City in the fall of 2019 to pursue his masters in music he has been active in the music scene, performing at well known spots like The Bitter End and The Provincetown Playhouse. During his time at the University, he studied with Michael Wolff (2019) and Alan Broadbent (2021), two very prominent NYC musicians in their own right. With education being a large and important part of learning and sharing his expertise in music, Will has taught forty undergraduates as an adjunct instructor. All this, while maintaining a busy schedule as a graduate student, teacher and performer. He has also performed in NYU’s yearly pop-up jazz festival at the Provincetown Playhouse (Greenwich Village) and the famed outdoor Grad Alley event (2022). Recently celebrating commencement at Radio City Music Hall, he believes that the journey to expressive musicianship starts with discipline and branches out through the imagination of each student.
