*** Travel Equipment ***
Lessons can start without drums. Students need a drumkit in the near future. This can be an electronic, acoustic, or practice pad set, and a notebook. I buy and sell used drumkits so a great deal is provided. I can provide study materials. I have three decades of experience in teaching aspiring students of all ages. Learning how to "use" a drumkit is a wonderful method of allowing a student to obtain the ability to enjoy playing. Inquire to achieve this!

*** Specialties ***
Drums: Beg. to Advanced
Piano: Beginner

I stress the use of fundamentals and rudiments. While doing this I include theory and explain its purpose.

James is a reliable instructor. He always meets at the scheduled time, and instructs with patience and persistence. Our son has been a student for 8 or 9 years now, and likes Jame's style of teaching. Our son has learned many techniques for playing drums, starting with simple beats. James is well liked and respected. For 11 years James instructed our oldest son on the drums. When the boys started showing an interest in piano, we bought a keyboard for them, and James started teaching them the basics of piano.
Currently James instructs our youngest son on drums and keyboards - rotating each week.
When our son wants to go over something he's been learning at school in his Advanced Keyboarding class, James has been a great help in this area!

My son has been taking drum lessons from James for a few years now and has grown so much in his love of music and his ability to play. He looks forward to his lesson every week. We are grateful to James for cultivating his passion.
