My Musical Influences

You are a wonderful instructor. Even tho I already played the piano, you opened my eyes to composition and arranging my music. I would highly recommend you to anyone that wants to learn to play the piano.
I was already an accomplished pianist when I began lessons with Mr. Jarvis. I was working on a piece of music I needed help with. He inspired me in many ways and helped me to layer the music for recording with various arrangements. The knowledge I gained from him has been invaluable to me as a musician and has enhanced my performances and recordings. James believed in me and encouraged me to reach heights I had not previously reached. I treasure the day I met James Jarvis and will always be grateful for the way I grew as an artist after the sessions I had with him.
