About James

Early Guitar Studies & Pit Orchestra Performances (1995-2002) I began taking guitar lessons at the age of 11 with blues/jazz guitarist Tom Castonzo, a frequent performer, bandleader and teacher in and around the Chicago area. My studies with Tom lasted for many years and covered various musical

Have been teaching myself guitar for two years; Jim has shown me I'm ready to move up a level. His lessons (I've had three so far) are fun and he tailors them to what I want to play. Jim provides written notes summarizing the lesson and guiding my practice for the next week. And he plays guitar beautifully. Makes me hope to be good myself someday.

Great teacher! She was able to teach my daughter in 3 lessons what her band teacher couldn’t do in 6 months. My daughter walked away after her first lesson excited and couldn’t wait for her next lesson. You can tell Charis loves what she does.

Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!

My first vocal teacher and the best!

Ms. Rachel was an amazing vocal teacher! We would always start off with simple and fun warm-ups, breathing techniques, and would practice singing songs from musicals. My first couple lessons she taught me how to sing I Feel Pretty from West Side Story and we both had so much fun with it! After a little while we learned Cups from Pitch Perfect and then we got into the Vaccai book and I learned a couple songs from there. Overall Ms. Rachel was the best! She even offered to Skype a lesson with me since she moved. She cared about me and always helped me improve my voice in every way she could. I love her!

David made the lesson worthwhile by teaching skills and showing how valuable those skills were to obtain. Provided a lot of value for the time together, and was very patient with me as I learned.

"Mia helped me to prepare my audition for a prestigious arts high school. I was shy and nervous, but by the end of my classes with her I was ready to audition. I nailed the audition and was one of twelve to enter the theater program that year. I can't thank Mia enough! She brings a grace and energy to her teaching, along with her incredible experience as a professional performer."

The youngest one absolutely loves her & n asked for more lessons. The other one is a apprehensive on going, but Lisa has handled her with kid gloves & helped her work through her difficulties and building the confidence she needs."
