A Chat with James Baumgardner - Tenor/Music Teacher
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I am a world-renowned opera and music theater tenor and music educator who has performed Off-Broadway and with many leading opera companies around the United States and Europe. My performances have been praised by Opera News, The New York Times, and the Vienna Daily Standard.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Materials are chosen to best suit a student’s needs and musical goals. I have a large musical library to choose from for initial lessons; and then, students can choose to purchase materials from my studio or at his or her local music store.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My wife and I recently moved from New York City back to our hometown of Littleton, CO where I was given a faculty position in voice and choir at Colorado Christian University. I am working to reconnect with the community by performing and teaching through my private studio.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to help people become more confident and connected in their musical talents and abilities. I believe almost anybody can find talent in their voice if they realize how to use it correctly. I also have a strong passion for the arts and preserving great music for generations to come.
