Student Spotlight: James Atkins
(By Karin Cravotta)

James Atkins can’t remember when he first became interested in music, but he has always remembered singing. “I remember singing the ABC song with cousins from when I was three.” 

According to his father, Steve, “James was born musical. Before [James and his twin brother, John] were born, if I played [jazz pianist] Brad Mehldau’s version of ‘Paranoid Android’, they would both start kicking until their Mum ordered me to turn it off. Mum was worried her singing of lullabies would scare the twins, so she began taking lessons when James and John were first born. 

James started trying to sing along before he could talk. He always sings in the shower — we have even had guests staying with us trying to discreetly listen.” Read more>>
