Get to know James
I started playing as a young student in 1985. I started my musical journey as a baritone saxophonist and later learning to double on bass clarinet and other woodwinds. Later , I became interested in playing tuba and studied with Mark Barton , Principal Tubist of the Houston Grand Opera & Ballet, Jeffrey Freeman, Low Brass Instructor, at Prairie View A&M University, and Flute with Dr. Wendy Bergin, Principal Flutist, with Opera in the Heights.
Music is my passion and I take it very seriously. It is my goal to assist, educate, and support my students to become the best they can be.
