My Story

Based in Bakersfield, CA, Bill O' Neill began playing music at a young age, perfecting his technical abilities and unique sound. Following years of experience performing on stages and at events, as well as lending his musical expertise to different recordings.

Bill has always been fascinated with instruments and the amazing way performing can touch each and every person. From a young age, he always wanted to perform. After years of committed study and practice, Bill became a professional Guitarist with a unique sound performing for packed audiences in the Bakersfield area and beyond. 

"I love what I do and it makes me so happy to be able to share my passion with others. Since starting as a professional Guitar Instructor in 1995, I’ve been privileged to see so many students discover their natural skills and abilities and reach results they never dreamed were possible. If that sounds like something you’d like to explore, I am here for you."
