Wil has developed his own curriculum over the years, “Speaking the Language of Music,” which focuses on  learning music like a language. This class not only brings recovery into the music mix, it hones in on it. Learning how to recover and learning music are related in every aspect. These paths greatly benefit from each other and Wil is here to  help you learn to navigate them. We offer a new way to explore and navigate the universal language, to make it  enjoyable, fun and a lifelong journey! We will deepen your understanding of music, your recovery and yourselves, while writing some great music. We will use keyboards to study music theory and then bridge that knowledge to use with other instruments. Come be a part of this class, as there is nothing else like it on the planet! Spots will go quickly so reserve your spot now!

He grew up in Kansas City and graduated, with honors, from Southern Methodist University in 2013 with degrees in Financial Consulting, Music Composition & Spanish. Wil grew up studying jazz and classical piano from a diverse set of teachers, from around the globe. In recent years, he now specializes in playing multi-keyboard rigs, as well as being able to sing, play drums, sax, guitar, bass & trumpet. As a composer, producer, arranger & multi-instrumentalist, he utilizes his talents playing in and writing for some great local and nationwide artists [Tula, Verses the Inevitable, Yonosei & Wes Hamil to name a few]. Simply put, Wil is often referred to as a "hired gun" in the music industry because he can play and write any genre.
