Past Student Reviews:

"Mr. Billy is the bomb. So talented, so exquisitely funny. He was a true pleasure to be around; I learned a lot from him.”

"This has been the most impacting class I have taken in a long time. To me hand writing is an art form, it is not just the aesthetics of the finished product, it is the experience of sitting down, with yourself, focused, enjoying the experience of writing. Mr. Billy definitely introduced this same concept to his class, bringing music, beautiful artifacts for us to use. This is only done by someone that genuinely cares about his art."  
“Knowledgeable, caring, made the class an extension of his aesthetics. It was a beautiful experience, and above all, he can truly teach."
