About Me

My name is Will Doublestein, and I’m an elementary school general music teacher from Indianapolis, IN. In 2013 I started uploading videos to a YouTube channel I named “Bow Tie Music.” At first the channel was intended to be a way of distributing program videos with parents who couldn’t attend their children’s performances. As time went on though it became a record of sorts, not only of my music programs, but also of my other classroom activities. I kept filming, and as recommended by the famous YouTuber Casey Neistat, I decided to “Never. Stop. Posting.” After a few years I developed a library of resources, and I realized that my videos could be a help to other music teachers needing ideas and inspiration. Eventually my audience began to grow, and now I’m privileged to help thousands of music teachers all around the world to reimagine music class and help their students develop a life-long love of music. As an educator, clinician, performer and entrepreneur, I’m thankful for this platform and I hope to use it to help others as so many people have helped me!
