Private Lessons online or in person

zoom online or Westminster,MD

Why just listen when you could join in and play! Want to learn to play the guitar, slide guitar, mandolin, ukulele, harmonica or banjo? Want to learn about songwriting, performing, improvising or music theory? I have been teaching for 30 years now. As a teacher my two main goals with every student are to show them that there is more to music than they ever imagined and then to show them how to do more than they thought they could do. I am grateful that I can help open the door to music for people trying to find a way in. There is room for everyone! Contact me at ChristopherJamesMusicSchool@gmail.com to get started!
