Hey, I'm James! I've been playing music professionally since I was a teenager, and I have earned my Bachelors of Science in Music in 2017.
Since I graduated, I have been very active in music community here in Florida, and have taught hundreds of lessons to students all over the state. I am skilled in playing guitar, drums, bass, piano, and I can even assist in voice and song writing lessons.

What makes students gravitate towards me is that I make learning music fun and easy to do. Also, I have every instrument you need in my home studio, so students can get started even if they don't own an instrument just yet.

Music Education is a subject that I am very passionate about, because there are so many benefits gained from learning this particular skill. These benefits include
- Discipline
- Dedication
- Confidence
- Motor skills
- Public speaking
- Social skills
- Communication skills
- Cognitive thinking
- Creative thinking
and Tons more!

By taking lessons with me, I will provide a comprehensive lessons plan that will help you improve quickly and learn and song or technique you would like!

James is very patient with his students. He caters his lessons to his students level. Worth every penny.

James is a very thoughtful and patient instructor. I took piano lessons many years ago as a child and always wanted to learn more. James was very reassuring and made me feel comfortable. I finally have the confidence to continue what I started many moons ago.

Thank you James! I was not that good with music growing up. Drums and guitar looks so complicated and I was interested. He is very patience. I don't have good rhythm with music! After getting 1 or 2 beats right i was excited! Practice and lessons make Perfect?? I hope so! "

"I have never had any experience playing drums at all. James was great. He was very patient with me, but at the same time pushed me to challenge myself. James was always encouraging, and I look forward to my continued lessons with him."
