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.
Teaching private lessons to piano and bass students
30+ years of performing experience with show bands, rock bands, and guitar, piano, and bass trios.
Jim has been great with my 6 year old son. Very happy with lessons so far! Definitely would recommend!
Jim has renewed my enthusiasm to learn to play the piano.
He was very motivating and patient with my grandson.
Looking forward to future classes.
He is a great teacher
Great first lesson
Had me playing on the first lesson. How neat
Great patience, flexibility and persistence
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
