Billy was the highlight of our party. Wish we could give him more stars than 5. He’s an excellent musician, delivering great quality renditions of all our favorite songs across decades and musical genres. Importantly, he’ll charm any audience while fitting in like friend or family. Our “birthday boy” was 80 years old and after the gig was over, Billy came back before leaving to give him a personal guitar lesson of his favorite song. It was a special moment and one that demonstrates what a lovely person Billy is. All our guests loved Billy and continue to rave about his performance. I recommend Billy highly and will book him again in future.

Billy T took our backyard party to a level we wouldn't have imagined. This man is a true pro! He is exactly what you're thinking about as you think about having live music at your next event. Hire him! Worth every penny.

What an incredible night!!! We hired Bill T. in the midst of the Covid weirdness to try to make up for a cancelled special birthday trip to Nashville. I had watched his clips on his website and was excited to have him perform but holy crap did he deliver!!! After a short phone conversation he gave us the best performance we could have possibly imagined, tailored perfectly to the birthday girl! Our roof deck literally felt like a rooftop bar on Broadway in Nashville!! I didn't expect him to bring lights or anything beyond his guitar but he brought EVERYTHING!! We felt like we stumbled into a honkey tonk with a bona fide rock star performing. Everyone there is scrambling to find an occasion to hire him again. Guests from age two to 65 loved every second. Really extraordinary talent and performer and all around great guy!!

Fantastic! Great entertainment for our backyard birthday bash! Really made the evening memorable and fun for our guests! Bill was very professional and easy to work with and was able to modify his playlist to make it just right for your celebration. Would highly recommend!

Nice guy but was more a DJ than performer. Many guests asked when he was going to start playing. Did not know that many songs so played recordings instead. Many songs sounded alike when he did play.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I mostly teach at my in-home music studio in Fairfax Va, however I will travel to select students for an additional $10 up to 15 miles away from the 22033 area code. No complicated pricing system. Simply the hourly rate, paid each lesson in cash, check or paypal. No formal commitments needed unless you would like to reserve a specific time slot each week and you only need to pay for one lesson at a time. Students do not need to pay for a block of lessons up front like most music stores.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First I start with a phone conversation to get an idea of what a particular client is looking for in terms of wanting to learn guitar. What types of motivation is driving them to wish to start to learn, followed by a brief discussion in the types of music that they would like to play. After comparing schedules we will find a mutual time to start for a first try a lesson, in which we further get to know one another and I assess what type of background a potential student might have in regards to music. If a student has had any prior learning with Guitar I will find out what skills they have to improve upon and if a student is a total beginner, I start them from step one to build the foundation to get them playing as fast as possible. i'll take an assessment of the types of style and learning method that each particular student seems suited the best for as well as understanding their specific initiatives in terms of how fast they want to be able to be playing at a certain level, and take into consideration how much time they will have to dedicate to practicing so that I can better help assist them in their time outside of our lessons.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a degree in Public Relations and minor in Music Education. I stay in tune with all the latest news in guitar tricks, and techniques and teaching methods.
