Often drawing inspiration from his students, Will transforms their real-life and imaginary experiences into amusing and memorable songs with an educational twist. He has led numerous educational music workshops for teachers in B.C., who regularly use his music in the classroom to make learning more fun. Will is also part of the ArtStarts roster.

Since 2005, Will has released four CDs of original music: “Let’s All Dance” (November 2005), “Will et sa maman: Chantons et dansons” (July 2007), “My Backyard” (November 2008), and “Dans mon jardin” (May 2009). Recently, “My Backyard” was nominated for “Best Children’s Recording of the Year (2009)” by the Western Canadian Music Awards.

Will has performed his highly-entertaining solo and band show to enthusiastic young audiences at more than 300 festivals, schools and libraries across Western Canada.
