LESSON FEES: $55 for a 30-minute lesson $75 for a 45-minute lesson $90 for a 60-minute lesson IN-PERSON LESSON LOCATIONS: San Dimas, La Verne, Glendora, Azusa, Arcadia, Monrovia, Pasadena SUBJECTS: Music Theory, Music Appreciation, Composition, Drums, Piano, Viola, Violin, Cello, Guitar, Ukulele, Singing, Vocals 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.
