I will bring these influences to the table to help with singing in the course. If you are more focused on guitar then we will do an 90 percent guitar and 10 percent singing approach.

From small town Ephrata Pennsylvania, James started playing music in high school with private classical viola lessons with the support of his grandparents. From a win for performance in high school, to a guitar competition that would lead to playing in bands for Ivory productions and recording songs with The Sunset Villains, James found inspiration in teaching others how to quickly improve their guitar technique. From teaching in person on the weekends to working for Guitar Center then Sam Ash James has moved his teaching skills online. As a beginner, my improvement was based on balancing self taught lessons and youtube clips early on. With hard work and focus, I have continued to improve and master guitar. Starting by winning my high school talent show and placing top 3 in many live guitar competitions, my growth continued through bands and live shows. After playing in bands such as Metropolis America and The Sunset Villians under Ivory Productions, I learned what professionals are looking for in the studio, as a writer and a performer. Bringing out personality within each student early on and attaching it to their progress unlocks long term motivation and growth. I started to find my talents in sales training post college and connected it with music.

Absolutely fantastic beginner guitar lesson! James was patient, encouraging, and tailored the lesson to my level. I learned how to develop good sense of rhythm and timing.
