WilliamjFE (William Underwood III) is an international flutist from Detroit, MI and has earned two degrees: a B.S. in music (Florida A&M University) and a M.Mus. in Flute Performance (Wayne State University). He applies his learned western techniques to all musical genres, including his original works, which helps to make music accessible to all and broadens the definition of art music. As an advocate of inclusion, William uses his platform to perform in traditional and non-traditional arenas. WilliamjFE has toured Japan with a broadway production, conducts the SEMFA Flute Choir and performs as a solo, chamber, studio and orchestral musician.

William’s goal: to encourage the youth to pursue the arts, continuously demolish stereotypes and bring people together through musical performance and fashion.
