Student testimonials:

"James is AMAZING. He is an incredible teacher and really made this class what it is... [He was] absolutely accessible to everyone on the room no matter how quickly (or not quickly) they picked up on what we were learning. I would definitely recommend this class to others."   

"James’ contribution to everyone’s musical growth is extraordinary: He plays slow and fast renditions beautifully, and the follow-up includes four or more examples on YouTube after we learn by ear.  He supports the whole extended group year after year with his presence at local jams."
