Music has always been a huge part of Jim's life. He began to teach himself guitar at around 6 years of age and took college-level music theory classes during high school. A multi-instrumentalist, with experience on many types of stringed and percussion instruments. Years ago, after an industrial accident left him unable to play guitar, Jim took this as a challenge, put a slide over his damaged finger and taught himself how to play slide guitar and has since adapted to his injury and relearned how to play again. He is proof that anyone can make music! Now, combining his passion for music and years of retail experience, Jim's goal is to help others develop a lifelong passion for making music and with it, the joy that's come to his.
