About this pro

I started piano at age 5 and took on my first student during high school.  I realize each student has different goals on what they want to learn to play. We can work together to achieve that goal while making a lasting relationship with the Piano and your dreams of becoming a Musician.  

Seeing a student advance and discovering their own style of playing. Each student has a different pace and understanding. Once it comes together it is magical.

    James has made learning to play the piano a great experience. He’s patient, and always makes sure I’m comfortable with my progress. He keeps the lessons exciting by adding in songs that I personally want to learn as well as making sure I master the techniques needed to play music properly. His passion for the piano and music is apparent!

    James is a great teacher. I can honestly say I learned more from James in my first lesson than I did many years ago, when I tried to learn piano. I know this because, I am a slow learner and a senior. If you are serious about learning piano, You will not be disappointed. He is experienced, knowledgeable, patient and an enjoyable teacher.
