Jim started out in music playing by ear, then in
Highschool leaned the note-names, chord spellings and how to
read a Jazz Rhythm chart, which is a simple way to sight-read
but not as intense as Piano sight reading. Jim learned that he
could identify and remember notes and pitches with great
accuracy. For many years Jim felt that non-reading players were
more musically expressive, until the Nashville session players
changed my mind. They played GREAT and read like Hawks which
gave them a clear advantage. To be a complete musician you
need a teacher to guide your way. Jim can be that teacher.
