I'm a nationally touring guitarist, and help my students play their favorite songs in multiple styles.
In my 16 years of playing, I have performed with Rick Springfield, Weezer, The Commodores, Death Cab for Cutie, Grand Funk Railroad, Fitz & the Tantrums, X Ambassadors, Howard Jones, and many more.
I love inspiring a passion for music in students. Once they really "click" with their instrument, they're unstoppable!
James is an excellent guitar instructor. He shows great patience and comes to each lesson with a great attitude. He has inspired my son to continue to learn and practice. Thank you James!!!
James is a excellent instructor. Very knowledgeable and patient. Enjoyed, and learned a lot from him. Highly recommend.
He's a fun and friendly guy who really helps my son understand his way around the guitar. They have a great time during our weekly lessons!
A skill evaluation - technique, timing, form. Next I learn about their preferred style, artists they like, and songs they want to learn. Finally, I prepare a plan that mixes technique exercises, songs at an appropriate difficulty, and practice regimen.

Each student has different learning styles. Understanding your own preferred way to learn will help with finding a teacher that can accomodate.
