Bill Jones is a true professional and we are so thrilled that we chose him to play classical guitar during our wedding ceremony. His skill was above and beyond our wildest dreams - he is so incredibly talented! He was responsive, kind, and professional throughout the wedding planning process. We knew having a live musician on the big day would create a more lively, organic, and elegant atmosphere for the ceremony, and with Bill's help we were absolutely able to achieve that dream. His timing was flawless and our guests were floored. He was easily able to accommodate our song requests, and the additional songs he chose for the seating of the guests, as well as cocktail hour, were perfectly appropriate and lovely. Cannot recommend Bill enough, and we are excited for the next time we can work with him!May 18, 2017Verified

I recently had a back yard wedding in Carlsbad, Ca. Bill entertained my guests, by playing his guitar during the cocktail hour prior to my wedding ceremony. Last minute plans changed and I also needed him to play while I walked down the isle. He gladly obliged and stayed through out the ceremony. I didn't hear very much of what he was playing, as I was only present during the ceremony. According to my family and guests, his quality of work was excellent...thank you Bill!Aug 6, 2014Verified
Ii have been looking for a classical guitar instructor for quite some time now and I feel very fortunate to have found Bill Jones. His knowledge and experience shines through in his instruction. I have been playing the guitar for just over a year and felt as though I had a great deal of knowledge, but had a hard time applying it. In just our first session, Bill was provided me with the tools to create more productive practice sessions. Just after two days, I can see positive results from my studies. I highly recommend Bill. Thanks againFeb 11, 2013Verified
