  • Education

    Ashley holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music, with a focus on Music Education from South Carolina State University. She is currently working towards her Master of Arts degree in Ethnomusicology, with a focus on African, Indian, and Polynesian music.

  • Teaching Experience

    Ashley began teaching lessons while in high school, providing private lessons to students in her band as well as members in the community. While in school at South Carolina State University, Ashley continued teaching private music lessons to people of all ages within the Orangeburg and Columbia communities. On breaks from school, she would come home and teach in Georgia. Immediately after her graduation from South Carolina State University, she was offered a teaching position as a Band and Chorus teacher in a rural middle school in South Carolina and built the program there. Many of her students are still heavily involved in music and have received many through their music careers. Currently, Ms. Williams focuses primarily on private music lessons and performing in different venues and events.

  • Performance Experience

    From a young age in music, she performed in the offered ensembles inside the schools and ensembles outside of the school as well. Not only did she earn section leader in her middle school band for two years, and her high school band for three consecutive years, but she was also section leader and a principal trombonist in multiple ensembles in her undergrad. Along the way in high school, she picked up other brass instruments as well: trumpet, baritone, and tuba and learned to perform on them on at least on an intermediate level. While at South Carolina State University, she was an active member in every band offered and performed in a myriad of different venues and locations with each of the ensembles. Being a part of these ensembles and holding leadership positions within them aided in building Ms. Williams into a very versatile player on multiple instruments.

  • Specialties and Teaching Philosophies

    When she is not playing, writing, performing, or listening to music, she likes to read and teach. She believes in creativity and “hands-on” learning using multiple methods of understanding in working with her students catering to their needs for positive matriculation on their individual instruments. She also believes in a well-rounded and wide horizon in Music Education through her studies in Ethnomusicology. Many of her students have performed music from all over the world. Ms. Williams is so excited to work with Ken Stanton Music and is ready to bring Music Education to you and your child! See you in the classroom! Her main quote towards music is by the philosopher, Plato: “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”
