Learning how to play piano and/or keyboards can and should be fun and exciting.This is one of the many reasons I teach, to give anyone the chance to experience the same joy and thrill I get every day from playing! To me there isn't anything else like it!

In my approach to teaching, I strip all the high level confusing text book goo out and distill it down to the simple basics. Building up a good solid foundation in music from the start makes it much easer for students to move in any direction they want to go.

One on one, private instruction sitting at the keyboard is one of best ways to learn I've found. You can see the patterns on the keyboard as we discuss things. You can hear the patterns as we play them on the keyboard. You can understand what you are seeing and hearing as we play them. And, most importantly, this makes it all easier to remember so you can immediately use what you just learned with confidence!

Ear Training - Technique - Theory - Timing/Feel - Improvisation - Repertoire/Styles, are all covered giving the student a well rounded, knowledgeable background with confidence to play what You want to play.

JAMES STEWART is a critically acclaimed keyboardist, composer, producer, performer and music educator with over twenty five years of professional experience in the music business.

After receiving a degree in Professional Music from Berklee College of Music, Boston, James Stewart relocated to Los Angeles and began logging years of studio time as an engineer and session player with artists like Robbie Nevil, Lamont Dozier, and Phil Collins' band members Romley Davis and Chester Thompson, as well as respected producers Henry Lewy and Hal Davis. In his off hours, Stewart performed in groups like Durango 95 and the New Kings, while honing his chops by studying with noted keyboardist John Novello (Chick Corea, Edgar Winter).

In 1992, James Stewart released "Season Of The Butterfly ," on YMP Records. The album featured guest support from guitarist/violinist Rick Sailon (Laura Branigan), and saxophonist Rob Kyle (James Lee Stanley). It was a critical success receiving a smattering of radio airplay and included an innovative new arrangement of the Mason Williams piece, Classical Gas.

One year later found James Stewart returning to his Wilmington hometown after the Los Angeles riots. His second album, "Lovers And Heroes," was partially written in Los Angeles and completed in Delaware. Released in 1994, its surrealistic sonic images met with critical and commercial favor, gaining nationwide radio exposure.

"Under The Pyramid ," (1995), James Stewart's third release on YMP Records, further explores his fascination with curious melodies and slick synthesizer instrumentals with bite and energy."This is an aural adventure that taps into cosmic energy," says Stewart, "and I almost charted on Billboard with this one!"

JAMES STEWART is currently in and out of the studio working on his fourth album for YMP Records.

Reviewer: Will W. from Wilmington, DE  
I just wanted to say James Stewart really knows his material. I thought it was going to be a lot of work to learn how to play piano, but James showed me in a simple and easy way how to play. I had a lot of fun and can now play some music I always wanted to play. Thanks James!
