I am an experienced teacher of piano and guitar, with two degrees from Berklee College of Music. I have taught students of all ages, from 4 years old to mid 70's. I approach all lessons with patience and enthusiasm, and strive to help students learn the music they want while teaching them the fundamentals they need. I'm also available for private tutoring in elementary subjects.
"James it's just great, being young makes so that my son enjoys his company, since he started working with him I hadn't had the teacher complaining anymore... Highly recommend his services!!"
- Alessia U., Parent in PACIFIC GROVE CA

How do I contact this tutor?

Click the blue “email” button to access NextGuru’s free messaging system. Here you may ask questions about experience, teaching methods, availability, rate... However, for the privacy of our members, no contact information may be exchanged in the free messaging area. When you are ready to make direct contact, click the “Register for trial class” link to register and pay for your 1st trial class.

What is a trial class?

Finding the right tutor takes more than a teaching profile page – it requires the right chemistry… Therefore, all our tutor members have agreed to offer new students a trial class to help determine if there’s a great fit. This means no semester-long contracts… just find a tutor, pay the flat NextGuru trial class fee and have a test run!

What happens after the trial?

That’s completely up to you! You have no obligation to continue classes. If you decide to continue, you work out the details (including schedule and payment method) directly with your instructor. If the chemistry wasn’t right, just come back to NextGuru and you can try another instructor…

How does NextGuru get paid?

All instructors are eligible for free membership – this is critical so that you can have the broadest, most diverse selection of teachers possible. Therefore, instead of paying a mandatory membership fee or a commission on lessons, our tutor members have given up their one-time trial class fee to help pay for technology and marketing costs.
