At the age of 15, William Sima became the musical director at the Wilson Theatre. He was quoted as saying “I always wanted to be a director … When I was a small boy, I’d forget to watch the show but would watch the orchestra dirctor instead.”(Shipmate, 1942) Sima became the second leader (assistant) of the United States Naval Academy Band in 1918 and its leader in 1933.
