James and his team of teachers are simply wonderful. Beyond the patient and clear musical tutoring, Craft Music seeks to create a sense of community by bringing students and families together for recitals.

I started lessons with James after many years of doing nothing musical. He was patient and challenging, supporting my ambitions to become a composer, while making sure I understood the fundamentals.

We see music as a means of self-expression. Our teaching focuses on both the interests and strengths of a student; we aim to instill technique, reading, musical confidence and needed aspects of the musical tradition. In addition, Craft Music provides a framework for duets and collaboration between students. Collaboration is encouraged!


3. Have a fantastic experience learning music you love!

Wonderful teachers. They come right to our house. My kids take both violin and guitar. My 10 yr old even asked for longer lessons which tells you everything you need to know about this great experience.
