He has instructed students with a range of experience from elementary, middle, and high school age through college students and adults. He assists with the youth jazz program at Cuyahoga Community College and has been a faculty member at Skyline Music Center in Westlake for two years. While earning his Master’s Degree from California State University, Fresno, Will taught courses in Saxophone, Ear Training, and Introduction to Piano.
