*To join the waitlist for this instructor, please fill out the waitlist form on the bottom of this page. LESSON FEES: $50 for a 30-minute lesson $70 for a 45-minute lesson $90 for a 60-minute lesson IN-PERSON LESSON LOCATIONS: La Verne, San Dimas, Glendora, Azusa, Monrovia, Arcadia, Pasadena SUBJECTS: Music Theory, Music Appreciation, Composition, Drums, Piano, Viola, Violin, Cello, Guitar, Ukulele, Singing, Vocals GRADE LEVELS: Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary, Middle School, High School My approach for teaching music is to customize each lesson to the student’s learning ability, musical desires, and personality. I teach a wide variety of instruments, and am flexible to any changes of instruments a student might want. My teaching age-level ranges from Kindergarten through High School. Though my name is James, most friends call me Jimi (and my students call me Teacher Jimi). A little about myself - I was homeschooled K-12th, graduated from Cal State LA with a Bachelor’s in Music, and have been teaching music with charter schools since 2011. Apart from teaching instruments, I have also been serving at my church with multiple music groups for over 15 years. My wife, son, and I live in the San Dimas / La Verne area, and we all enjoy learning music together, as well as languages and drawing.
