William Smith is a guitarist, teacher, and composer in the Chicago area. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in music performance from Ball State University and Masters of Music Performance from DePaul University. William has taught guitar privately on the Northside of Chicago since 2014. Additionally he teaches, composes, and performs through Resonance – an educational program he co-founded in 2016.

Paul Witkamp grew up in rural Indiana and was first introduced to guitar in middle school. Though he received training, it wasn’t until pursuing his bachelor’s degree in recording technology that he was exposed to classical guitar. He continued his his studies at Ball State University and earned his masters in classical guitar performance. Currently, Paul teaches private classical guitar lessons for Sherwood Community School and Merit School of Music.

William and Paul have played together as a classical duo (among other projects) since they met at Ball State University while perusing their undergraduate degrees. They’ve performed a variety of works ranging from the early Renaissance to the freshly composed. They bring to their performance an eclectic program, dynamic energy, and subtle, yet tasteful notes of innocent bromance.
