James Ervin

Guitar, trumpet, piano, music production


          James Ervin is a Toronto-based multi-instrumentalist and music producer who has been teaching and performing for over ten years. When teaching, James loves helping his students discover the excitement that comes with learning an instrument while developing methods that speed up the learning process. Experienced in teaching guitar, trumpet, piano, recording and production, he is known to approach each lesson with lots of excitement and energy.

          When he is not teaching, James can be found performing/touring with various musicians/bands and has worked with notable artists such as Walk Off The Earth (Juno Award Winners), Sean Mendes (Grammy Nominated) and Matt Andersen (Juno Award Winner).  

"James really helped me take my guitar playing from the basics I had learned to a much more comprehensive understanding of my instrument, and musical theory in general. Without what I learned from James I'm sure I wouldn't have had the confidence to pursue music as a career, let alone get accepted into music programs for my post-secondary education, which I now have thanks to James." - Julian, age 18, currently enrolled in the music program at Mohawk College
