Chuck James (Owner/Founds of Chuck James Music School)

We make it our top priority to teach material that you want to learn, and lessons necessary to develop your skills on your instrument of choice.


We do this so that music is rewarding for students of all ages and levels.


CJMS is here to provide an atmosphere where music is enjoyed! 


We want to inspire our students to reach a natural potential, and to find the music that makes them happy and to inspire others.

Strong Fundamentals

At Chuck James Music School our goal is to train students using a preferred curriculum, which allows students the ability to adapt to any musical situation that they may become involved with. We believe that teaching the fundamentals of music is extremely important for the proper development and enhancement of a person's musical ability.

Making Music Fun

Our goal is to make music education fun and exhilarating for our students, while still providing a structured learning approach that's necessary to achieve tangible results and help our students realize their musical dreams!

Nellie Miller, Student

 My instructor has more tolerance and patience with me than I have with myself. I have learned so much Chuck James School as it is of a great value to the community!


Wayne Okimoto, Student

I am I senior and retired. I have taken drum lessons from Chuck James to keep an active mind. The lessons are stimulating and the instructors are very helpful.


Casey Menor, Student

I was an adult advanced pianist who has not been playing for a few years... I felt welcomed... I look at the staff there as part of my Ohana!
