The song of a music teacher, performer and jazz lover, Bill has long enjoyeda wide variety of musical influences. He is an actor, performer and improviser who loves to sing and dance any time he gets the chance. Deeply inspired by the freedom, spontaneity, and sense of wonder within children of all ages, Bill works (and plays) to keep that childlike spirit alive in himself and in his classes.
