About James F.

Hi, I'm James. I'm an easygoing teacher - not interested in being obsessively rigorous - but I will expect you to substantially develop your abilities as you learn, according to the goals we set up when you start your lessons. My focus is on building a foundation of sound playing technique, and maintaining (and, to the extent that it is relevant, improving) that technique as you develop an experiential understanding of harmony within the context of whatever sort of music you want to play.

My personal taste in music tends towards classical (I'm listening to Liszt as I type this) and progressive metal, but I can appreciate all sorts of music. I've been playing music since I was 7 years old, violin from ages 7-14 and guitar from 7-10 and 14-25.
