They will learn how to CARE for their instruments. They will even learn Jamie's secret technique on how to "Control" those audition/ stage jitters !! They will even start to see them disappear!!! ( spoiler alert! Its not from performing in front of an audience more!) Having had dealt with it herself, Ms James found a way to manage her Own stagefright and never had to look back, and you can too!

"I am a strong believer in that, the words you say to your children become their inner voice and the things that their inner voices say to us, become our reality. When necessary, I work with my students young and...not...so young, to help them figure out what it may be that is holding them back, and I teach them how to re-train their brains to get past it for their ultimate success and happiness!" -Jamie Lynn James
