James Rodriguez

Be a MUSICIAN! Be by doing. Learn to play/sing and understand MUSIC!
Teaching Philosophy

After spending time with me, students will be able to demonstrate their knowledge of music theory and be capable of sight reading basic material.

More advanced students will be able to improvise using scales and be able to master the fundamentals of their instrument.


I began playing music at 7 years old in Elementary Band. I played in my middle school and high school marching band as well as Riverside Community College's "Marching Tigers" Band.

In college, I played with Cal Poly Pomona's various ensembles on guitar and trumpet.

I have a BA in Music Education and have been teaching privately for the past 6 years.
