About Jim

Jim Tyndall has been a music learner his entire life beginning at age 9 on the viola in his public school’s music program. Beginning guitar and both upright and electric bass at age 11, he has deepend his command of melody, harmony, rhythm and timbre. Having been teaching music since age 16, Music pedagogy has become on of Jim’s most invaluable skills. As a multi-instrumentalist and composer/arranger, Jim writes for his experimental fusion band, as well as taking part in the engineering, mixing, and production of recording music. His pedagogical approach deals with educating the “whole musician” to ensure the student has a strong understanding of music as a whole and not just technical knowledge of a single instrument.
