Although my son sees himself as a lead for his band, he comes across a bit shy and unassuming. James has been great at addressing this and pulling my son out of his comfort zone so he can reach his ultimate goal.
Also, my son was extremely particular about who he wanted as a voice teacher. I thought I would never find one to fit the bill. James was a perfect fit. I anticipate we'll be in touch with him routinely as my son pursues his music career.
James is a fun, experienced, talented musician, who makes his students feel quite at ease. I highly recommend him as a teacher."
And they're not alone!

As a teacher many have described my style as nurturing-but-firm. When I see a student's potential, I make sure that student can attain it. I expect a willingness to learn, a desire to succeed, and a want for excellence. In return, I offer the tools to get the student there!
I know that not every student benefits best from only one method. As such, I employ a variety of teaching tools and methods to best suit each student. Strings students can expect to see a little bit of traditional training, a little bit of Suzuki and little bit of contemporary training. Voice students can see some Sieber vocalizes, some Vaccai, classical, jazz, and musical theater training built on an old-world teaching technique. It's all about giving the student the tools to do whatever he/she wants with his/her music of choice!
On your first lesson, I'll go over the materials needed, what you need to work on, and the very basics so you can immediately get to enjoying your new craft. In a few months, you'll be confident making new music or making better music. Within a year, you should be well prepared for one of my studio recitals!
*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a commercial music teaching studio used solely for the purposes of teaching. In the studio there is a piano, my music library, photo copier, computer, audio equipment, stereo, music stands, standing mirror, and various teaching tools. There is a waiting area for parents, siblings and other visitors.
