Take it from a parent who knows, Jim Clark is a rare find. Jim’s unique teaching style which balances discipline and fun really works. My 2 sons, Dan and Kenny, both take lessons from Jim. Dan plays guitar and Kenny plays bass and both boys truly enjoy playing their instruments. The progress that Dan and Kenny have made in such a short amount of time is incredible. I’m impressed not only by their talent, but also by the passion and enthusiasm they have for playing their instruments. And I’m not the only one that’s impressed. Friends have asked Dan and Kenny where they take lessons and have switched over to Jim after giving up on prior instructors.
I think a big part of Dan and Kenny’s success stems from the great respect they have for Jim both as a teacher and a musician. Jim emphasizes proper technique and the importance of theory. His teaching style interweaves so many facets of guitar playing, and music in general. At the same time, Jim knows how to keep things fun with his sense of humor, and by teaching Dan and Ken songs and techniques that they want to play and learn. Jim has introduced them to so many music styles and genres that they might not have otherwise been interested in. Jim Clark goes out of his way to make every lesson a positive experience!
