    James always meets me where I am in my pursuit of piano playing. Having him as an objective observer of what my hands are doing can make a huge difference when I am trying to learn a new piece of music. Writing out the fingering is important, but often a tough passage for me can be made so much easier after he has seen "how" I am attempting to make those fingerings work. Also, he is always eager to draw the connections in music from Bach, to jazz standards, to even Christmas carols and holiday tunes. Chords and scales are important to, but often the "feel" that James points out turns simple exercises into music.

  • Nicholas Cassizzi

    He is an artist who shares his endless knowledge and experience wholeheartedly. He has the patience of a Saint and is always positive. Even when not totally prepared, I always leave feeling a sense of accomplishment.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

You start with the basics.  Sitting at  the piano, hand position, learning the notes and their values.  It's a slow process and it is never typical.  Every student is unique.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been playing the piano for 70 years.  Studied composition with Vincent Persichetti, Classical piano with Clement Pertrillo for ten years and Jazz with Dennis Sandoli.  Studied orchestration with albert Harris and conducting with Frederich Zqeig.
