Lesson Instruction with Bill Francis
Bill Francis has been a guitarist for 37 years and a guitar instructor for 25. Bill studied music theory and recording production at the Hartford Conservatory in Connecticut, and has played in several performing bands throughout the course of his career. He brings his experience and wisdom into the lesson room, along with a positive attitude, to help all of his students achieve their guitar-playing goals. Having taught himself to play guitar by ear as an 11-year old boy with recorded radio mixtapes on repeat, Bill works well with all levels of experience, from entry to expert. If you're a beginner, Bill has the patience and drive to take you closer to your dream of becoming a proficient player. If you're already accomplished and just want to learn some new techniques or branch out a bit, Bill has the experience to teach you.
