John Marcel Williams Shares Musical Experiences with Beginner Guitar Students

16-year-old guitarist and Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist John Marcel Williams wanted to share his own learning and experiences with younger guitarists of a nearby community. He chose to visit the Pittsburgh Music Academy (PMA), where he gave a brief performance and ended with a Q&A session for those in attendance. There were about 20 young guitarists in the audience, ranging from ages 6 to 12, who all study with the Academy’s guitar instructor, Ron Dubois. Both Ron and the PMA supported John in organizing the event.

“For me, it was such a great experience. Most of the kids had never heard advanced guitar music. It felt really good to be able to play for them and see that they were genuinely interested at such a young age.”
