May Student of the Month: James Hendrickson

May student of the month, James Hendrickson, seems to have a knack for music. In addition to playing guitar, bass and piano, he studies music production independently. As if that wasn’t enough, he is also actively rehearsing and writing music in a band outside of MARS.

James has been a student at Music and Rock School for about 5 years. Currently, he is taking bass and piano lessons, but he also served as an intern here a couple of years ago; giving him a chance to learn more about business and teaching music.

He is always upbeat and eager to learn when he comes to his lessons. Also, anyone who knows James can tell that he genuinely loves music.  Since you may not know much about James, he was kind enough to answer a few questions for us (which we have listed below). We salute you James and are proud to have you as our student of the month.

Favorite band: Memphis Mayfire

Favorite song: “Death of the Robot with Human Hair” – Dance Gavin Dance

Best concert ever attended: “The House Party Tour with Pierce the Veil, All Time Low, A Day to Remember. The stage was like a house. There was confetti everywhere and there were some crazy pyrotechnics.”
