About James

Thank you for considering my tutoring services. I work as a professional Marketing Specialist. My job requires me to, on a daily basis, write professionally. I am experienced with all levels of writing (English language only) and have been published many times. I love to write, and I love assisting others who truly desire to improve their writing skills.

I also perform music professionally. For many years I made my living as a full-time Church Musician. I play trumpet professionally in the Fort Wayne area, and also serve as the Music Director for a singing ensemble that performs in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. I do all the arranging for this choral group as well as the booking and marketing. Running a successful semi-professional musical ensemble is a challenge, but one I thoroughly enjoy. I would enjoy helping others successfully develop their own musical group, both on a performance level and a marketing level.

I look forward to your contact about how I might be of assistance to you. Thanks! James

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.

Bible Studies

I am a Christian and have studied the Bible for most of my life. For fifteen years of my working career I served as a full-time Church Musician where I, on a weekly basis, wrote and prepared the Sunday morning worship service incorporating Scripture and Bible references. I still utilize the Bible extensively in preparing my vocal ensemble programs and worship services.

Ear Training

I am a professional singer, conductor and brass instrument player. I have also earned a B.S. in Music, and ear training was definitely a requirement for earning my degree. I currently lead a professional singing group, and certainly having a good musical ear is imperative during rehearsals and performances.

General Music

I am a professional singer, conductor and brass instrument player. I have also earned a B.S. in Music. Much more important than my education and skill, however, is my willingness and ability to present music in a fun and joyful manner rather than a incorporating a tedious approach. Music should be a JOY in a student's life - not a burden.

Marketing

I earned a B.S. in Marketing degree in 1986, and in one form or another, have worked in a "marketing" career ever since. I have worked as a manager in a retail setting and in the sale of financial and insurance products. Most-recently, I work in a job where I market services to the Senior Healthcare industry. Also, as a professional musician, I am constantly marketing my various ensembles to churches, community performance opportunities and concert venues.

Microsoft Publisher

On a daily basis, I work extensively with Microsoft WORD, PUBLISHER, POWERPOINT and EXCEL. I enjoy being creative within each program and utilizing the many custom applications available. POWERPOINT is, particularly, a somewhat difficult program to master, but once learned, can be a very beneficial tool. It is also the program that offers the most opportunity for "creative" ideas! I earned a B.S. in Marketing degree in 1986, and in one form or another, have worked in a "marketing" career ever since.

Sight Singing

I am a professional singer, conductor and brass instrument player. I also have earned a B.S. in Music, and sight-singing was definitely a requirement for earning my degree. I currently lead a professional singing group, and certainly good sight-singing skills are imperative during rehearsals and rehearsal prep.

Trumpet

I am a professional singer, conductor and brass instrument player. I have also earned a B.S. in Music, and studied trumpet at both Iowa State University and Wayne State College. I am the Flugelhorn soloist in a brass band and play trumpet in several area professional ensembles. For many years prior I presented solo trumpet and organ concerts in churches throughout Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, and currently play solos in, primarily, local Fort Wayne and surrounding area churches. I play Bb, C and Piccolo Trumpets, and also perform extensively on Flugelhorn.

Voice (Music)

I am a professional singer, conductor and brass instrument player. I have sung all my life, and from age 20 to currently, have sung professionally. I currently lead a professional singing group, and within the ensemble sing, alternately, Lead, Baritone, Tenor and Bass. I regularly am hired to sing solos in area churches and community venues. I also enjoyed a nice career, as a younger man, singing musical theater roles in several Fort Wayne area theaters.
