I have been a student of Dr. Williams for two years at the University
of New Orleans. I would just like to say that Dr. Williams is an AMAZING
teacher. She is able to take whatever problem I am having in a piece
of music and break it down into smaller pieces so that I not only know
how to fix it, but how to apply the same principles to other problems.
In addition to being a wonderful teacher, it is a joy to take piano
lessons from her. She is always encouraging and willing to help. No
matter how many times I make the same mistake in a piece of music, Dr.
Williams always responds with a helpful pointer or humorous anecdote.
It is because of her expertise and personality that I look forward to
my weekly lessons. It is a joy and honor to study under her guidance!

When I went to study piano at the University of New
Orleans I had no idea that I would meet a person who would become my
inspiration, motivation, and a true mentor. Dr. Williams has always
been available to help, monitor, and guide my progress despite her many
responsibilities at school and home. In only three years of study with
Dr. Williams I feel Ive made a huge improvement technically. Her
constant encouragement and positive guidance increased and improved
my self-confidence as a performer. Dr. Williams has always provided
a productive, structured and interesting learning environment in her
lessons. As a professor, active performer, and member of local and national
music associations she is truly an inspiration for an aspiring musician.
I am honored and proud to say that Ive been studying with such
an accomplished musician.
