James, a 3rd generation musician and teacher, graduated from Atlanta Institute of Music in 2008 with a focus on musical performance, theory and composition. He has experience teaching a variety of ages from 5 to 80 as well as students with special needs.

Local lessons are offered at Jackson's Music in Douglasville, GA - (Westmoreland Plaza); and at my home studio in Decatur, GA - (Bridlewood Cir); and in home lessons offered within a 10 mile radius of Decatur, Ga.

"Hey everyone, I am always willing to take on new students no matter what age and or experience. I usually average around 40+ students a week so go and find a time that works for you!"

Students who take lessons in person will be able to take advantage of programs such as Riffstation (a slow-down audio file program to make learning easier, faster, and not to mention more fun.)

Students who enroll in online Skype classes can look forward to personal music material handed out through email. Students are also offered play-along pieces at the end of every lesson!

I have been taking guitar lessons from James for about 4 years and love it. He has taught me so much. James is a great teacher, very patient, lots of encouragement. Will work with you on anything you ask. A very comfortable atmosphere. works very well with your schedule. He is a fantastic guitar player himself. He has great music theory. I highly recommend him for anyone. You will be pleasantly surprised and very satisfied. I give him a 5 star.

James has been working with my son for several years now. He is kind and patient and encourages my son to try new songs and challenge himself. We feel very fortunate that James has helped bring music into my son's life.

James is an awesome instructor who is very patient and kind with my 5 and 6 year old boys. He is extremely flexible with my family's crazy schedule, which is a huge plus for us. This is my kids first time taking piano and they love it! I am glad they have him as an instructor.

James is an excellent teacher for the stringed instruments as well as piano and music theory. James has extensive knowledge, skill, and musicianship to share with students of various skill levels. James' passion for music and his genuine love for teaching make his method highly effective.

James has been my daughters Guitar instructor for over 3 years now...It is very difficult to find the right kind of person to isolate with a child and have comfort. James is an Outstanding person and a great teacher. Our daughter totally enjoys the time learning with James and she has improved continuously with her Guitar skills. James is very patient and very approachable - two mandatory traits for a good teacher. I could go on but this is supposed to be brief - James is the best!
