Hello, my names is James Hawes. I have been studying and playing classical guitar since I was twelve years old. I'm fifty three years old now, so that's been a long time, but I've learned that it takes even longer then that for most people to truly become proficient on the guitar. I am a private teacher with a full schedule of guitar, piano, and French horn students. My degree is actually in horn. I have a performance degree and a masters degree fron the Indiana University School of Music. Although I miss playing in orchestras, I don't play horn anymore and devote all of my practice time to the guitar. I look forward to what I might be able to learn from the forum members.
