In our New York flagship classes, live music is an essential part of the experience. And for the past eight years, we’ve been fortunate to have pianist and composer William Wade as our lead musician. William’s energetic playing and vivid imagination bring beauty, humor and invention to classes throughout our local network. Many of you have enjoyed William’s music at our workshops or through our At Home DVDs and CD. Last week, all of New York took notice as NY1, Time Warner Cable’s 24-hour newschannel in NYC with more than 4.5 million viewers, selected William as its New Yorker of the Week. William had been nominated by an admiring participant in our Manhattan program. You may view the segment here. Congratulations to William for this wonderful and well-deserved recognition!
