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.
