How he jams with you: James has been teaching privately for three years and tailors his instruction to the interests of his students, while also ensuring they are exposed to both classical and popular music. “I encourage a positive and fun learning experience with the goal of helping students play and love music well beyond their years in school. I want to create life-long music lovers.”
