About James

I love teaching because I get to play guitar, meet new people, and learn something new with every lesson. I am currently an undergraduate at Columbia College majoring in Guitar Performance. I started teaching guitar at The Ann Arbor Music Center at 15 (I began teaching group fencing lessons at the YMCA a year before that) and I have loved every lesson since. I am a highly versatile player and teacher, I teach advanced levels of both acoustic and electric guitar. If you are Interested in rock, indie, alternative, blues, metal, r&b, country, funk, punk, jazz, bluegrass, or folk then I can help you out! I have played all these styles professionally and am well versed in teaching them.

I take students of any age and experience and am happy to travel to them or to have them travel to me if they'd prefer.
While I do hold a 24 hour cancellation policy I try to stay flexible with my time and offer make up lessons.

I hope I hear from you! Have a good day.

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.

Guitar

I have played and studied guitar for ten years. I am currently finishing a bachelors degree in guitar performance at Columbia College Chicago. I spend almost all of my free time practicing and studying performance, theory, history and anything else I can get my hands on. I perform shows in numerous styles including Rock, Blues, Bluegrass, and Jazz. Before moving to Chicago I taught professionally at The Ann Arbor Music Center and attracted a strong following that continue to ask for independent lessons when I'm in town.
