You are about to take an important step in your personal and musical development. My name is James, and I know how valuable private study can be. Not only have I been teaching private music students for nearly 25 years, but I studied privately in one musical medium or another for over 15 years, myself! I assure you, the development of personal discipline and of good rehearsal techniques will have a positive impact on you academically, professionally, and creatively. The opportunity to participate in studio recitals will help you grow in confidence and character. And, the knowledge you acquire and skills you develop will help you on your journey toward master musicianship.
      Take some time to browse the website. The information you find here will help you become acquainted with me and with the benefits and responsibilities of private study. If you still have questions or when you are ready to get started, feel free to contact me.
