“Jim Cash started teaching my 3 boys when they were barely old enough to hold the instrument. Each summer, when they get to pick their after-school-activities, Jim makes top of the list. He has become part of their lives, not just as a guitar instructor, but as a friend, mentor, and role model. And their guitar playing sounds really good, too!”
