HELEN AVAKIAN, AWARD-WINNING FINGERSTYLE GUITARIST, SINGER & SONGWRITER, HAD THIS TO SAY ABOUT JAMES:

"I IMMEDIATELY NOTICED THAT JAMES IS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT GUITAR AND MUSIC. HE DOES A LOT OF STUDY ON HIS OWN IN ADDITION TO THE COURSE WORK HE HAD AT DCC. HE IS CONSTANTLY READING BOOKS ON MUSIC THEORY, FINDING AND TRYING NEW MUSIC AND ATTENDING CONCERTS. JAMES HAS A THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF THE GUITAR FINGERBOARD, AND HE READS WELL."

"JAMES IMPRESSED ME FROM THE START AS AN INDIVIDUAL WHO IS WILLING TO GO ABOVE AND BEYOND."
