Hello, and welcome to Open Strings.

I'm Jim Hurley. Open Strings Music Studio is where I teach kids, teens and adults the knowledge and skills to be well-informed, able participants in the modern world of music.

If you or your children would like to learn to play the violin, guitar, bass guitar or mandolin, or if you already play and would like to add to your knowledge and skills, I may be able to help you.

I have helped many hundreds of students over the past 30 years to bring their various musical goals and dreams to life, with regular private lessons, comprehensive musical education, and group playing opportunities. I would be happy to help you to do the same.

Please explore the contents of this site and see if Open Strings offers the educational resources and opportunities that are right for you.
