William Berge is a native-born Minnesotan transplanted to the Southwest. He was a student of Herbert Greenberg, member of the Minnesota Orchestra, and Lea Foli, former concertmaster of the Minnesota Orchestra. When he is not teaching or playing the violin William does philosophy of physics at the University of Arizona. "In many ways," says William, "excellence in both physics and violin playing parallel each other and are complementary - both are exacting and unrelenting in their demands and both disciplines admit of an enormous range of creative possibilities. Constantly, during my teaching sessions I smuggle in talk of the 'Physics' of the bow-arm or the left-hand as one of many effective pedagogical devices that I employ. My technical background has also enhanced my ability to be something of an experimentalist in my teaching. Here I have learned to experiment with, and employ 'out-of-the-box' problem-solving techniques towards achieving excellence in violin playing."

William has over 30 years of teaching experience, a Bachelors Degree in Philosophy and a Master's Degree in Philosophy.
