Wedding Ceremony Music

My wife and I hired James to play guitar for the processional and recessional of our wedding ceremony. We had very specific plans for the songs and arrangements we wanted to hear, and James was able to accommodate by learning and tweaking them in a very short amount of time. He communicated with us frequently throughout the process and sent us videos to make sure we were happy with the results. On the day of the wedding, he arrived on time and with the necessary equipment, and set things up with the coordinator/officiant so that we didn't have to worry about anything ourselves. And, of course, he played the songs exactly as we'd hoped, helping to make our ceremony a perfect and memorable one. James, I'm glad you found my listing here, and thanks for everything!

We hired James to play instrumental guitar for our mom’s 100th birthday party. Frankly… he was great! On the day of the event he arrived on time, set up quickly, and got right to work. He played a wide variety of music throughout the afternoon including music from the 1940’s, exactly as we had requested. In addition to being a gifted musician, James was professional, competent and gracious to all of our guests. He was a pleasure to work with. James, thanks so much for a job well done!

had a great time learning bass with James. We're gonna be good buddies, since he's a metal head like me. Really awesome teacher.

Hey Alex, If you get this message, can you please send me your email? E-mail me at jhartmusiq@gmail.com, I need to ask you if you can just copy and paste your review into a form from this wedding website I just joined to improve my chances for getting hired for weddings. Unfortunately, I can't just copy and paste your review onto my website myself, so please send me your email so I can send you this form. It would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much and feel free to keep me in mind for any future events where you'd like live music from me or even anyone who might be interested in taking guitar, bass guitar, or ukulele lessons. Best, James

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Discounts are available when purchasing bundles of lessons, i.e. (4) one hour or another amount of time lessons will give you a discount!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I individualize lessons for each and every student to help them learn the ways that are best suited for them.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I hold a B.S. in Music Performance from SUNY New Paltz. I also have been playing on major cruise ships since 2016. I did various contracts with Carnival, Princess, and Celebrity Cruise Ships playing guitar in the House Bands/Orchestras sailing around the world (40 countries in 2 years). I have been freelancing/teaching music full time since 2018.
