"I just can't say enough about Larry. He is a wonderful musical talent and a great horn player, but most of all, he seems to have the kind of personality and attitude that brings people together around him.
Michael Tilson Thomas told me that Larry made a big difference in the New World Symphony and I do understand this because I had seen it happen in Santa Barbara for two summers. I can recommend him with absolutely no reservations."
Principal Horn (Ret.), San Francisco Symphony Orchestra
"Larry was my horn teacher for nine years. I studied with him individually, as well as at the Peabody Preparatory in the Herald Brass Quintet and French Horn Ensemble. Larry opened my eyes (and ears) to a completely different side of music. He challenged me artistically and intellectually. He taught me discipline and patience, and that I could do anything that I wanted as long as I had the will to learn. When we first met him, my parents and I had the expectation that Larry would help with my breathing and playing techniques, but we never imagined that he would become the true friend and mentor that I consider him to be today. I would recommend his services to anyone who is looking for a wonderful teacher and coach!"

“I cannot say how much I appreciate the help I have gotten from Larry Williams over the past three years. Larry has always been around and available to give extremely personalized advice on my career as an aspiring trombonist, teacher, and chamber musician. I am inspired constantly with his patience and attention to detail. Larry also leads by example. His career is a shining example of how a musician can create for him or herself an extremely fulfilling career by wearing many different hats. I am so grateful to have Larry Williams as a mentor in my musical career.”
Trombone, C Street Brass
"I've worked with Larry in his capacity as a performer, educator, and administrator. Prior to meeting Larry, I had been told by several colleagues that he was an outstanding horn player and musician, a phenomenal teacher, and a brilliant guy - having known him now for more than five years, I can say that all of those expectations were met and then some. I've learned a lot from Larry, not only from listening to him play and watching him teach, but from our many conversations. Larry is a forward thinker, and (equally as important) a DOER. I've always been impressed with his ability to think things through, take an idea and formulate a plan to put it into action, and follow it through. I would HIGHLY recommend Larry's services to anyone looking to better themselves and/or their ensemble/company!"

"As an amateur horn player, I was frustrated by my inability to play any position/literature that required a high range because I "couldn't play high notes". Since I live in Boston, the only way I could study with Larry was over the Internet using a web camera. For the first time in my playing life (30 years), I am able to consistently play up to a "high C". Even when I have not been practicing (thus not "in shape"), I can still hit the high notes, proving that Larry's technique is the answer. It's amazing how much we accomplish having lessons on-line. It is a great experience and I highly recommend it to anyone else who is interested."
