    James is an amazing teacher and guitarist. His love and understanding of the instrument shows in the way he teaches. Not only is James thorough in his approach to teaching the guitar, he makes learning fun!


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

In the first lesson, I'll have the student play something to get a sense of where they're at in terms of technical ability. From there, I'll give new pieces to develop repertoire while gradually introducing new concepts through carefully constructed exercises. 

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

I've been an instructor at the Conservatory of Annie Moses since 2013. I have also been involved with the Annie Moses Summer Festival since 2009, as well as the Nashville Jazz Workshop

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I normally teach at $25/per half hour. For travel lessons, I will include the cost of travel and time to reach the students location.
