Designed specifically for new players, the Academy 22e offers a compact version of our affordable walnut-topped acoustic guitars that delivers both rich sound and an accessible playing experience.

With a durable padded gig bag for storage and transportation, the Academy 22e offers the ideal blend of utility, playing comfort and sonic punch.

With the 2013 acquisition of Moeller Music, Willis strengthened its commitment and dedication to school music programs in all markets. At the same time, Willis began representing the renowned Yamaha Band and Orchestra line of instruments. As a family-run company, all of us at Willis are tremendously proud of the legacy that began with Charles H.
