My teaching style is very personable and friendly yet serious about results. Curriculum can be tailored to the student.For piano students I am currently using the Alfred's basic piano library series. Students can expect to progress to the next level within a 3 to 6 month period depending on student’s dedication. Reading, theory, and technique will all improve and grow at the same rate. My philosophy is that instruction should take a learners knowledge of music beyond the instrument.

About James B.

I have been teaching for the past 15 years as a private instructor. My students range in age from 5 years old to 64. I teach beginner and intermediate piano and beginner, intermediate, and advanced electric bass.
I've been playing professionally for the past 30 years as an electric bassist, pianist, and vocalist. Learn to play like your favorite artists while having fun and growing as a musician. For bass students, you can learn all styles that are desirable, such as funk techniques like slapping, R&B grooving, rock & roll driving, and jazz swinging. For piano students, you can expect to learn enough music theory to reach greater heights and move forward while developing a love for the piano and the world of music. I offer a teaching environment that is highly interactive and encourages students to play, and understand the dynamics of playing with other musicians. You will learn to read music but I promise you will not be bored.

We have had a few in-home lessons with Jim for our 9yo girl and 15yo boy. He's fantastic; he cares deeply about music and their love of it. He has high expectations of their progress, and he is very good with their different skills levels and motivates them accordingly. We highly recommend Jim!

If you want to learn to play a song on the piano you can call just about anyone but if you want to learn to really play the piano this is the only guy to call....

It is great to have Jim as a piano teacher. He is extremely patient with you and will work on your needs and interests specifically. Will definitely choose him over any other in the future. I appreciate his kindness and allowing him to practice in his home.Diana
