William Bye is a Brisbane-based guitarist and teacher. He is currently studying a bachelor of Advanced Science at the University of Queensland specialising in Physics.
From a young age he was interested in music, initially learning piano before trying out violin and saxophone. He eventually found his musical passion with the guitar. Throughout his time learning guitar at Sheldon College he played in a number of the school bands and events. Including the school musical, assemblies and special events. This also included playing at external venues such as the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron’s opening. During his final year at Sheldon he was awarded the Australian School of the Arts Contemporary Musician of the year award.
Will is currently playing in his own 4 piece Soul/Funk band “Shylo” with a few of his high school friends, performing regularly at the Cleveland Markets as well as Brewdog Murarrie.
Will’s lessons aim to not only teach the basics of guitar but moreso to encourage students and ignite their passion for the instrument while allowing the students to explore their own musical tastes and development. He is willing and open to teach a range of music genres such as jazz, rock, metal, funk etc.
