Rick Williams~ Composer, Lyricist, Librettist... Known for his emotionally moving music and hummable melodies has also written "Maya" and "Connected, the Musical." Pictured here with his musical hero Richard M. Sherman of the Sherman Brothers.
As soon as he could climb up on the piano bench, Rick began experimenting with his first compositions by age 3. Even at that tender age, he was frequently a source of irritation and frustration to his piano teacher, as she required that he play “what was written”. Being both creative and stubborn, Rick continued to re-write these recital pieces. Soon after his debut recital, his teacher unexpectedly died. Rick’s parents decided that they did not want to take any further chances with piano teachers-- lessons and instruction abruptly stopped at the age of 3 and a half.
Rick plays piano, guitar, banjo, cello and a variety of other musical instruments. Rick and his wife have successfully raised 9 children and are enjoying living in Jupiter, Florida…paradise as Rick calls it.
