James Kershaw brings a lifetime of experience to this community. He is creative, stimulated by a challenge, striving to put extra value into his products. Choosing self-employment early in his career reaching a level where he disciplined himself as a sign painter, graphic artist, and musician. James feels that any artistic endeavour employs universal terms such as colour, balance, contrast, tone, composition as universal jargon.

Holding a Royal Conservatory certificate James cultivates a growing repertoire that reflects the types of songs that today's elders love to hear.

A background of volunteer service and a love of art, nature, music and evolving writing projects are his daily works-in-progress. He is enrolled in Brock University's Humanities program studying towards an Honours Degree in Studio Art.

Piano engagements usually last an hour, and I aim to arrive a few minutes in advance. At this time I prefer that your facility has a working keyboard or piano available. For birthday parties and special occasions, I will bring appropriate music (St. Patricks Day, Valentines, Christmas, Easter). Some residents may like to sing along, and I encourage this. I look forward to hearing from you. Contact me for your music hour's entertainment. Cheers!
