About James

HI! I am a recent graduate of the Berklee college of Music (Boston) and have been taught by some of the most sought after musicians of our time (Mike M., Ralph P.). I am excited to disperse this knowledge to others and help them achieve their musical success, whether for fun or for a career!
I am easygoing and teach at the pace that the student wants and is comfortable with. My teaching style is systematic so that the understanding is deep and I do not fall into unrelated paths that will confuse students. My specialty is with children as I can come down to the level of simple understanding that will give them a solid foundation for future development!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drums

I have been studying drums for 14 years under the guidance of qualified teachers. I played in all the Jr. High and High school bands while being the first Jr.High drummer to play with the senior class.
In high school I was the jazz drummer for the small ensembles and the Big Band in which we competed in national competitions. During this time I also was professionally gigging (age 16-18) every weekend and recorded two albums.

In 2007 I was accepted into the Berklee college of Music and in 2008 I began attendance. While attending I studied with Mike Mangini (Dream Theater, Poison, Etc..), Ralph Peterson (The Ralph Peterson Band), and others. I played in several bands in Berklee and graduated with Honors.
