I have over 14 year of experience with flute preference and over 8 years of experience teaching students of all ages and levels. Many of my students have been excepted into honor orchestras and have been excepted to music schools such as: Cal State Long Beach, Biola University and Indiana University. My students gain a strong foundation in flute performance and a solid back round in theory. I specialize in classical music and I use a variety of books and exercises, tailored to each student.

About James H.

I am a professional flutist and flute instructor. I currently hold the position of principal flutist of the Dana Point Symphony, have many years of recording experience, performed internationally, and have been privately teaching students of all ages and levels for over seven years.

My students can expect to gain a strong foundation in flute performance, including preparation for recitals and auditions. My students also develop an appreciation of great music and a solid background in theory. They have gone on to become great flute players, and have been accepted into excellent music schools, including the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at Cal State Long Beach, Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, and Biola University Conservatory of Music.

I believe in inspiring lifelong lessons that help students achieve self-discipline, creativity, professionalism and assist them in accomplishing their goals.

James is an amazing teacher! He is extremely patient and thorough. In addition to helping you with your playing, he helps you with theory as well. I learned more from him in one year than my past teacher in three. Because of him, I was able to get into my top choice school for music with a large scholarship.

A great instructor with the ability to bring out the best in his students while motivating and correcting as he fine tunes and gets you to where you want to be musically.

James is a great teacher! I already felt like I had learned so much from him within the first lesson, and am learning more and more each week. He is very patient and thorough!
