My New Website!

I am excited to share this new website with everyone!  I hope that it conveys my excitement for my work leading training sessions for early childhood educators and librarians as well as my family concerts, visiting author events, and community VIDEO book projects,  Please take a few moments to explore the site and PLEASE use one of the many red buttons that say “Contact Jim” to send me an email with your feedback!  I’d love to know if you like it, of course, but I also want to know if anything doesn’t function well so we can improve it!  Thanks!

I’d LOVE to visit!

My banjo and I have traveled to almost all of the 50 United States (c’mon Alaska & Hawaii ) as well as the Virgin Islands and Canada for training workshops and concerts.  I’d love to bring my excitement for music play to YOUR program…..whether it is a library system, early childhood program, children’s museum or other agency.  Send me an email to start the discussion! 

Thoughts from those who have worked with Jim …


… and have experienced his training events and concerts.

“Over the past 20+ years I have known Jim, I have found him to be an inspiring and true advocate in the field of early childhood education. In both his professional training workshops and his family concerts, he intertwines child development concepts with an uplifting and enthusiastic presentation that you cannot help but walk away feeling motivated to be the BEST teacher or the BEST parent for young children. In my role as director of a Child Development Center and, now, as part of a non-profit for the early childhood field, I, along with my colleagues, have invited Jim to southern California a number of times to present both concerts and training sessions. I thank Jim for making a difference in the lives of children and for all the joy he has brought to this field.”
