About James

What do the legendary rock and roll performers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Dennis Edwards, Ben E. King, Eddie Kendrick, Jerry Lee Lewis, Sam and Dave, Ronnie Spector, and Ronnie Wood (The Rolling Stones) have in common? The answer is: they’ve all used Jim S. as a Musical Director, Guitarist or BandLeader.

Hello Students,

My career has spanned over a 25-year period as a guitarist for legendary performers and as a experienced guitar teacher. Although I played rock and roll for 15 years with Bo Diddley, through the years I have played Rhythm and Blues, Jazz and studied Classical harmony.

I have extensive experience teaching students from the age of 5-17 in NY and NJ and currently teach at the music school, "From the Top" as well. Some of my students go on to study at the Berkeley Academy of Music. My music teaching combines ear training, technique and applying your own creative style.

I'm open to listening and teaching you the songs you want to learn as well as educating you on classics and contemporary songs to be a great musician. I focus as well on the fundamentals such as musical theory, hand technique, musical exercises and playing by ear.

I look forward to the opportunity to teach you and help advance your musical career.

Keep Rockin',
Jim
