James Nelson

Piano

I attended Kwantlen Polytechnic University from 2010 through 2015.  I had a pleasant experience with all my teachers whom were very helpful to me not just in the classroom, but in trying to help me prepare for the real world.  Since my graduation in April 2015, I’ve been recording and composing music for solo piano.  I completed my first album called “Perceptions & Reflections” in May of 2016 and am currently working on my second album that is entirely Romantic Era music; Chopin Liszt and Schumann to be exact. My friend was also kind enough to design me a website to help promote/sell my music in audio format plus sheet music format.
