University of Nebraska Omaha violin professor and Omaha native William Wolcott is a passionate violin virtuoso, but also a teacher who puts as much devotion into molding his students as he does in his performance. To Wolcott, teaching and performing are connected.
Wolcott strongly believes that once a violinist recognizes this fundamental principle, they can succeed at both levels, "continuously learning and growing, searching for new solutions to old problems, looking for new ways to communicate through the language of music, and finding clearer, more concise ways to share this knowledge with students."
This concept has become the key to success in his teaching (making him very well known in the metro Omaha area), performing, and the overall success that resonates through all of his students.
