Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Instead of teaching only a "piano lesson" or a "drum lesson", I incorporate music theory, ear training, sight singing, percussion, composition, and sometimes the recorder into a well balanced music lesson that happens to be at the piano or the drumset. As a result, my students become well prepared to move forward with the piano and drum set, but they also become quite prepared for any other instrument that they end up pursuing in the future. The piano has the range of the entire orchestra and is the best instrument to choose in order to begin the journey and exploration of the study of music. I love teaching kids as well as adults of all ages, and I love sharing decades of knowledge to give students a huge head start in their musical pursuits. I tailor each lesson to the needs and abilities of the student in a way that is forward looking, yet fun and well rounded. It is my desire to enhance the life of every student in order to make the joy of music very personal and satisfying for life. I do not use the Thumbtack calendar, so please contact me directly for scheduling.

James has been an amazing piano teacher for my two children, ages 5 and 8. He is very patient and my kids are always excited to see him for their lessons each week.

Incredibly knowledgeable. Working great with a kid that's a little too young to start and making actual progress. That's not easy. I learned a lot just drifting in and out of the lesson as a parent. Hire this guy.

James has been fantastic. He just started teaching my son drums a few weeks ago, and my son is excited and enjoying the experience.

James is very knowledgable about MANY types of music, not just piano! The kids love learning from him. He relates to them so well at each child's level. He is able to teach my young daughter piano, and my older son the drums, which is great for our busy schedule. He is flexible and does his best to accomodate my son's erratic sports schedule. We are so pleased to have him working with our kids!
