William McGlaughlin’s introduction to music came late; he was fourteen before he took his first piano lessons. "Happily, I understood immediately what a wonderful thing I’d stumbled into. I can remember thinking as I walked away from my second piano lesson — "Well, that’s it. I’ll be a musician. Of course, I had no idea what that decision meant exactly."
