My son really enjoys virtual clarinet lessons with James. His positive and organized style keeps my son motivated to keep practicing between his lessons. He's always in a good mood after his lesson and I can hear the improvement each month.

Our son has been taking clarinet lessons with James since 2015. Private lessons with James has made a huge difference, and our son has gotten into honors band. James is a very gifted teacher who works with the student's strengths and motivates them to improve their playing skills.
